Strange POP3 Email Problems

    Been trying for a month to get my business POP3 email to pull down on the Droid. Have tried both the default email app and K9.

    I am able to send email from the default app, but it will not receive. Just says 'Connection error'. Have checked the settings a dozen times. They are correct.

    1st time I tried K9 3 weeks ago, I got no where. Connection errors. Today I reinstalled it, and all of the sudden it starts pulling down headers. But - about half the emails I click on won't pull down the rest of the message. Just sits there and says 'Downloading...', then after several seconds says 'Connection error'. This is when I start cussing profusely. Sending email from K9 seems to work ok.

    Anybody else having this same issue? Suggestions? Is there another email app to try?

    Make sure that you are not using the "Beta" of K-9.

    Double check your "outgoing" server settings and credentials.
