    I am trying to link my school email account with my Eris and it wont let me. I got all the settings entered correctly, but it says it cant verify the account and to try again? And advice or suggestions?!
    My blackberry I had before the Eris linked it up no problem.. Ive got to figure this out! Thanks! :thinking:

    it can be either a pop or imap account.
    the incoming and outgoing mail server would be "email.uah.edu"
    Here is whats on my school site:

    "Another way to check your email account is with a POP or IMAP email client like Outlook, Eudora, or Apple's Mail. The table below contains the information you will need to set up your email client to access your university email account."

    Hope this helps..
    User Name
    Your ChargerID username​
    Password
    Your ChargerID password​
    Incoming Mail Server
    email.uah.edu​
    Outgoing Mail Server
    email.uah.edu​

    User Name
    Your ChargerID username​
    Password
    Your ChargerID password​
    Incoming Mail Server
    email.uah.edu​
    Outgoing Mail Server
    email.uah.edu​

    I had the same problem too.

    My school uses a modified version of Gmail. So what I did was just have my .edu account forward to my regular Gmail account. I'm not sure if you can do that with your school email though. If you can then you can have all your school email forwarded to your Gmail account that you use.

    I'm guessing your school email setup would be similar to mine. The problem I faced was that my schools email was setup as a POP3 for incoming, but I could not send emails, which meant it had to be setup as an SMTP account for outgoing settings. I have literally no idea how I got it to work, I just messed around with the settings for a while and it somehow worked. Heres my settings on the droid, im just going to use your school in the examples:

    Incoming:

    Username: email account (without the ending, i.e. uah.edu)
    Password: duh
    POP3 Server: mail.uah.edu
    Port: 110

    Outgoing:

    SMTP Server: uah.edu
    Port: 995
