Does anyone here know what's the IP for Rogers pop (or a full qualified address) server(s) in Toronto?

I'm outside of Rogers network for a week, and want to set up my machine to receive e-mail the regular way, rather than suffer webmail.

Thanks,

G/<

each area has a different fully qualified pop and smtp address/name
you have to call rogers and tell them where you are connecting from

I use pop.broadband.rogers.com

And I can check my email from rogers, golden triangle online and aol.

They also have specific ones as MACSPECTRUM stated but I have found this one through some online investigation. It is resolved to its simplest form.

For sending out it is just as easy:
stmp.broadband.rogers.com

Thanks. I used the "broadband" address, and that works perfectly.

BTW, I DID call Rogers first, with less than spectacular results. I also tried to use a qualified address I had used before and when that didn't work, I thought of the friendly folk here.

And got results! [img]smile.gif[/img]

Thanks again,

cool, i didn't know about that

i gave up on bell or rogers email and have a nice little company hosting my email/website for $11 / month

that way i can use whomever i want for my "connection to the net"
also with my own mail server, i can resolve my pop and smtp addresses from anywhere that i am, plus i have DNSs that resolve easily too

it may be a little bit of a convoluted solution but it works for me and lets me play the ISP game with rogers and adsl suppliers (i.e. going with the introductory rate until it runs out and then i chaqnge ISPs)

please note that there are cheaper ways of having email hosting, if anyone wants to investigate this solution

How long have you been doing that? Haven't they caught on yet?

the systems to record previous users at bell and rogers are so bad that you can do this ad infinitum
just don't sign up for any long term contracts

right now i am paying $24.95 per month (including modem) for rogers hi-speed (NOT lite)

normal price is $44.95
