Question and Answer

  • Are the entries in for username and literally equal to "email" and "uw email-wachtwoord" as shown? Using what I think these should have doesn't work. Thanks.

  • I cant get the phone (Sony m5) to recognise my account. username and password are correct (I've used them for 20 years). I note comments about pop3 cancellation - does this mean just wont work properly on an android phone?

  • The reason this does not work is that Bluetie bought Excite mail in 2008 and cancelled the pop3 service and will never be re-introduced again.

  • It won't let me get past the incoming server settings. It tells me "cannot safely connect to server". Whether I am on wifi or 4g. Says the same.

  • These settings do not work for me on a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. I keep getting "login error".

  • Wondering why I cannot manually set up a email app. Put all in and it says cannot connect to server. Do I have to be on wi fi to set this up?
