Re: pop3 email for playbook

The following advice applies to my pop account with Time Warner Cable in the US, your mileage may vary. :-)

 

You've probably alread assured yourself that your Username, email address and Password are correct.

 

Make sure the smtp and pop server ports are correct.  Mine are:

 

POP 110

SMTP 25

 

Also be sure you don't include smtp username and smtp password because the setup will sometimes include them.

 

Good luck and hope this helps.

Re: pop3 email for playbook

If the station has its own website you should be able to stream their live output, Says "Listen Now" usually. It will stream after the 5 minute standby timeout in most cases
