    Same issue sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I have Godaddy and sprint air card

  • cskitchens Mar 26, 2009

    Sprint says it is GoDaddy blocking it with their firewall. I have contacted GoDaddy about 100 times, sent emails, spent hours on the phone. It won't work with ANY browser, Mac or PC. Sprint's technical team can't connect to the secure server either. GoDaddy keeps asking the same questions over and over. I've been contacting them for over a month now and they are NOT HELPING.


    My next thing to try will be a certified letter to Bob Parsons. I have about 50 sites on their servers and will move them soon if they don't get this fixed.

SOURCE: OE error says host pop3 cannot be found

You're pop3 server has 2 names, the incoming mail server name and the outgoing mail server name.
The names are usually written like for example; "incoming.verizon.net" and "outgoing.verizon.net" or like: "pop.gmail.net" and "smtp.gmail.net".
For your ISP find out what the server's names and install them in the appropriate spots -Spelling counts (capitalization does not count)!!!! Observe where the periods go also.

Good Luck!

for this kind of situation, you need to contact your internet service provider, and get the incoming and outgoing mail server, and you need to make sure that you can access your email thru the web. if it is, you can start reconfiguring your email, it cant find the server because, most of the time the password of your email thru the web and outlook is not the same.

I get this error when trying to ''Send and Receive'' email using my computers Windows Mail. The host 'pop3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account:...


It looks as if the server name is not complete. where is your email coming from? you'll need to know that and the email server (for example: mail.ptd.net for penteledata customers). Or, pop.gmail.com for gmail users. Get that server, then go into your account settings and put the server name into the Incoming Server blank. once you do that and save it (also make sure your outgoing server is correct) you should be fine.

I have an older computer that does not have a wireless card, but my internet is through a verizon um175 air card. i have gotten 10 different answers, and none work. 3 different answers from verizon alone...


Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

The issue is: Unable to Send/Receive emails from winThe host 'POP3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'POP3', Protocol: POP3, Port:...


You are receiving this error because of one of two reasons:
1) Your email account is not set up properly. Click on Microsoft Outlook, click on Tools, then Accounts. You will see a window with columns stating Account-Type-Connection. If an account is set up then click on it then click on Properties. Click server tab and you will see the SMTP server block and the POP3 server block. Both of these fields will read as follows: pop.XXXXX.net and smtp.XXXXX.net. Your Internet Service Providers name will be in the XXXX. If these are not set up properly then you cannot connect to send email. If they are filled out correctly then you need to call your Internet Service Provider and inform them of your situation. Their server is not working properly.

Don't forget to 4 star this solution.

Pop email settings with godaddy domain


I FINALLY GOT THE ANSWER! I ALSO HAVE A GODADDY EMAIL ADDRESS AND USE A HTC TOUCH PHONE FROM SPRINT. I've entered the following settings and my email now works like a charm! This is for a POP3 email address, not an IMAP email address.

You cannot send the email unless you have a sprint email address. Email must go through the Sprint server in order to be sent (incoming mail does not).

Call Sprint Tier II (877.345.7895) and ask them to set you up with a User Name and Password for the outgoing mail server. All the rest of the settings are as follows:

EMAIL SET UP Email Address: You@YourGoDaddyDomain.com Your Password: the password you use to access your go daddy account Check SAVE PASSWORD Click NEXT UNCLICK TRY TO GET EMAIL SETTINGS AUTOMATICALLY FROM THE INTERNET. Click NEXT. Your Email Provider: Internet Email Click Next Your Name: Dales Wife Account Display Name: 'GoDaddy Email" or whatever you'd like to call it so you can identify this account (you can have several email accounts sent to your phone). Click NEXT Incoming Mail Server: pop.secureserver.net Account Type: POP3 Click NEXT User Name: Again enter You@YourGoDaddyDomain.com Password: Enter your password again Check SAVE PASSWORD Outgoing (SMTP) Mail Server: smtp.sprintpcs.com CHECK Outgoing server requires authentication UNCHECK Use the same user name and password for sending email Advanced Server Settings: DO NOT Check: Require SSL for Incoming e-mail DO NOT Check: Require SSL for Outgoing e-mail Click DONE to return to previous screen Click NEXT Outgoing Server Login: TheNameGivenToYou@sprintpcs.com Password: When you call Sprint Tier II they will ask you what password you'd like. Check Save Password. Automatic Send/Receive: I use every 5 minutes and it doesn't seem to run my battery down. Click FINISH. This has been driving me crazy for two months now so I really hope this information helps somebody else out. Best of luck! NOW, if anyone knows how to remove those annoying envelopes when I access my mail - I could use the help. There are three envelopes there (one for GoDaddy mail, one for Outlook and one for Picture Mail.) I do not use Outlook or Picture Mail and would love it if I could remove those.

Staying connected to internet, using sprint 595 air card


If I were you, I would let your windows manage your wireless network on the computer with vista. Also you might, If you haven't already tried using your install new programs in the control panel, As long as you have the sprint software downloaded in your laptop windows should still recognize the wireless connection, Try letting windows manage it from the Network properties and there should be an option there that lets windows manage you network. try it see if that helps you out. If not write back here and let me know we can try another route. Sorry you having problems.
