Has anyone gotten a Rogers e-mail account to work with Mac's mail program? I am Running OSX 10.4.9. I am having trouble downloading mail from the server.
I can send mail alright but can not receive new mail.
I have tried changing the port to 587 Rogers own recommended setting and to 993, 995, but still I am having connectivity problems. I am following all of the settings that are posted on the Rogers| Yahoo website.
You don't have to change port numbers. Here's the instructions I posted on MUGOO:
Select Add Account... from File Menu
Select POP as the Account Type
Put an account description in Account Description (the email address is good)
Put your name in Full Name (your real name or what you want on your emails)
Put your email address in Email Address
Put pop.broadband.rogers.com in Incoming Mail Server
Put your user name in User Name (the part of your email address before the @Rogers.com)
Put your password in Password
(Mail will try to find the pop server)
Put smtp.broadband.rogers.com in Outgoing Mail Server
Click the Use Authentication box
Put in your User Name and Password again
(Mail will try to find the smtp server and then present a summary of the info you gave it)
You can also manage accounts by selecting Mail Menu, Preferences and selecting the Accounts icon.
I have just the same problems,man its frustrating.
Got a new Mac Pro 17" yesterday.
Got every thing else working except mail.
I was on the phone for 4hrs today trying to sort this out.
Spoke to 3 people at Rogers and 2 different Apple techy's,no luck.
What the heck is up with this deal.
Checked all the relevant info,pop this smtp that,the rogers guy and the Apple techy told me ever thing was as it should be but still cant get mail to come in.
I can send mail but not receive.
Any other techy guys out there that may be able to help,would certainly appreciate it.
Failing this,is there another email program u reccomend that can still get mail from the rogers server????
Thanks for any help offered.
