email settings for btconnect accounts

After searching for days and also contacting blackerry, i have managed myself to get btconnect email working on my playbook, these are the settings for both the old pop3 and new pop.outlook settings (offive 365)




Description: what ever you want to display (can leave blank if you wish)

Display Name: again whatever you want (can leave blank if you wish)

Username: your @btconnect.com email

Email Address: you own email address if you have one set up, otherwise it is the @btconnect.com

Password: whatever your password is

Server: pop3.btconnect.com

Port: 110

Use SSL: off

SMTP Username: remove whatever is displayd and leave blank

SMTP Passord: again remove whatever is displayed and leave blank

SMTP Server Address: mail.btconnect.com

SMTP Port: 25

SMTP Encryption: Off


the rest of the options are up to you.


select save, this will then be set up and fully working.



New Office 365:-


The only different setting are:-


Server Address: pop.outlook.com

Port: 995

Use SSL: On

SMTP Username: your @btconnect.com email address

SMTP Password: your email password

SMTP Servers Address: smtp.outlook.com

Port: 587

SMTP Encryption: StartTLS


I have only set up an account still with a @btconnect address, if this does not work try your own email address in the SMTP Username.
