    When I enter the user name and password it says checking incoming mail server, then after about 20 sec it says. Unable to open connection to server.

    Is there a setup option to "leave messages on server"? If you have a lot of email, it might take a while to download.

    I might play with setting up a pop account just I know how this works.

    Looks like from their support page, you have to use FQDN with user name, so username@windstream.net

    If all else fails, maybe call their support and see if they can help?

    colnago posted this up and it reminded me of another way, even as a test:

    Mail Fetcher - Gmail Help

    Basically you sync with your gmail account, but have gmail use pop3 to get your windstream email.

    Did you figure this out yet?

    I called verizon and they were unable to figure it out so I continued to play around with it. It took me a long time to figure it out but what worked for me is below: (do manual setup) after you input the incoming server info and hit done....it will ask for the outgoing server info.

    incoming server was a pop3 account
    type: pop.windstream.net
    port: 110
    outgoing server was smtp server
    type: smtp.windstream.net
    port: 25

    Thank you very much!!! I have always struggled to get the email set up on my phones and today, I could find everything but the port #25.
