    Anyone else having problems getting no errors on the email program? Seems to be hit n miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. I am running it as Imap with 25messages(this is dumb to why cant I pick so many days of messages). Email program seems to just suck like the built in gallery app.

    I just got mine last night, and the only thing I can connect to is my gmail account.
    I can't connect to my personal e-mail account (on a domain that I manage. So, I know what I'm doing), or my work e-mail account which is on a MS Exchange server.

    Is there a third-party e-mail client we can use on these things?

    Are you using the built in Gmail account, it should work seamlessly if you do.

    I'm not sure which one of us you're responding to, but I assume it's not me...
    quoting... "the only thing I can connect to is my gmail account. "

    I'm trying to connect to my other e-mail account via IMAP and another account that's on the Exchange server at work.

    Neither is working.

    My issue as it relates to this thread has been fixed (LINK).
    It seems as though I, on the other hand, am still in need of a bit of fixing. :eek:

    I use the standandard g-mail accoun on the Bionic. I use the standaard e-mail app (not the g-mail app) to access it.

    Saturday I tired adding my non-mobile account. It is a POP server. I entered the standard information and you have to be cautions about the advanced information definiton. In my case it validates in one direction and the other direction relies on that without doing the validation again.

    There are different configurations for mail servers. You have to use the one your account uses for your mail server and it has to be exactly correct.

    It seems likely you have jus tnot set one of the blessed paramaters correctly in your account defintion.
