    Having Trouble setting up email acct for roadrunner...

    Mom4Soccer

      Hi all,

      this is my first type actually asking for help on this message board so excuse me if I am not doing this correctly.:smileyhappy:

       

      I was able to set up my hotmail acct on my Droid by Moto. But when I went to set up my roadrunner acct, setup couldn't finish. It stated: "Setup could not finish - Unable to open connection to server". When I press Edit details, it highlights and puts the cursor on Port field.  "110" was automatically entered through setup.  I doubled checked the setting in my outlook accounts and the incoming port was the same.

       

      Can someone please help me if it is possible?

       

      Thank  you!

          You may need to be using your WIFI connection through RR to set-up this account.   I have set up two different road runner accounts and they work good while on the road runner servers.   The incoming port is 110 the outgoing is 587.    The problem with the RR email account is that you must be on their network to send \ respond to emails.  You will be able to receive at all times.  This is not a verizon \ droid issue, it is a road runner thing.

           

          Here were my settings to get the account working (note: I was on wifi through RR when i set up.)

           

          Incoming: 

           

          User name: your user name

          Password: your password

          POP3 Server:  pop-server.woh.rr.com    Yours may differ where the woh is

          Port: 110

          Security type: None

          Delete email from server: never

           

          Outgoing:

          Smtp server:  smtp-server.woh.rr.com     Yours may differ where woh is

          Port: 587

          Security type: none

          Requires sign in:  NOT checked

           

           

          Hope this helps!!

            Okay, can you tell me if we can have more than 2 accounts set up on the droid?  Right now I have the google, and I have enterprise exchange for my business.  I was just on the phone with verizon and they said you could not set up a roadrunner account and I see on here that some of you have.  Can I possible find out how to add a 3rd account? Thank you.

              I was able to set up RR for incoming and outgoing mail. No matter what I did, it would receive mail but I couldn't send it.

               

              I set up a Gmail account and followed these directions. Now, I can send mail.

              If you go about 3/4 of the way down the page, there is an explanation on how to set up RR mail through Gmail.

                Sorry it took me forever and a day to get back to you. :smileyhappy:

                I went through about 3 different phones because they were all acting weird.  Now I figured it out that it was the apps that I loaded that messed up my phone.

                Anyway, your suggestion works. Thanks so much.:smileyvery-happy:
