Re: E mail on Kindle Fire

Are you using pop3 on your yahoo mail ?
If so it will download and delete mail from the server and there will be nothing there for the kindle. If you wish to see mail on both then your yahoo needs to use IMAP as well.

Re: E mail on Kindle Fire

Sorry, completely misunderstood there. Embarrassed I thought you were using another client to access your plus net mail.
Check the username/password you are using. If its the main account mailbox then its the login you use to access the member centre, if its a mailbox then its username+mailbox name and the mailbox password (as used to login to webmail)

Re: E mail on Kindle Fire

If you login using webmail (http://webmail.plus.net) do you see any messages there?

Re: E mail on Kindle Fire

The way I interpret that is that you don't see any messages because there aren't any. Are any messages received downloaded by a different computer using POP3 (which removes them from the server) or do they get sent to a different mailbox which you aren't checking?

Re: E mail on Kindle Fire

The messages are OK on my main computer and I will see if that is POP 3  How should I alter this ?

Re: E mail on Kindle Fire

It isn't possible to change a POP3 account to IMAP directly since message storage locations are different. POP3 messages will normally be stored in a folder local to the appropriate computer, IMAP messages are stored on the server.
However before making that change, would using the POP3 setting "leave a copy on the server for (say) 7 days" meet your needs? That would mean messages would be viewable on your Kindle for 7 days after download to your main computer. Is that sufficient, or do you need a lot longer?

Re: E mail on Kindle Fire

It's possible to access your emails using IMAP, POP3, or both. All you need to do is change your incoming email server in your email client(s). There's no problem with having POP3 on one email client and IMAP on another (if that's what you want).

Email address format yourname@username.plus.com
Incoming (POP3) Server mail.plus.net
Outgoing (SMTP) Server relay.plus.net
IMAP Server imap.plus.net

I hope this helps.
