Any reason why some email providers don't connect?

    Just got a HTC Hero, and I've been trying to set up the email provider with my Yahoo and btopenworld accounts. Basically, the system seems to have a problem, saying that "check username and password" for Yahoo, and "server not responding" for BT. Well, I do know my entry is correct, so I wondered whether (a) some servers don't link to my phone, or (b) I need to set a particular 'setting' some place.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't know if this is still true, but for a long time Yahoo's free service did not allow POP access.

    Certainly for Yahoo I think you need a pro account to use POP but they have recently released their own Yahoo Mail app, you can find it in the market.

    As for BT, 'Server not responding' means there is either an issue with the connection or the POP address you are using is not correct. I think this should be mail.btinternet.com for both POP and SMTP.
