    I've had the Samsung Ace for a few weeks and all fine at first.

    Added a Hotmail account and it was easy and workd fine; I was able to send and recieve e-mails perfectly.

    But.....

    I noticed over the weekend that no new e-mails were coming through.

    I am still able to send, but when I try and refresh and pick up new messages I get the message...

    "unable to connect server"

    I've tried removing and setting up again, and get the same issue.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi all,

    I understand this should be a new thread but i'm apparently not allowed to create one due to SPAMMING....

    Anyway....
    I have a samsung galaxy ace and when trying to set up the email feature i get to the point where i must input my username and password.
    I am allowed to input this data but the options to continue are greyed out...

    Any ideas as to why ?
    And any possible fixes for this ?

    Cheers

    if the options are grey are you sure you typed everything correctly, no misspells?

    Perfectly sure, all is correct.
    From my memory they shouldn't be greyed out regardless :confused:

    I am trying to set up a Microsoft exchange account with a Microsoft outlook email address.

    Turns out it was an APN error, although all APN settings were correct, i eventually received an APN error. Checked with provider for the correct settings and all is well.

    Sending handset back for exchange.

    Cheers for the response either way :D
