Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
I have tried many variations of setting up my att.net email on my new Kindle Fire with absolutely no success.
I have tried using the Yahoo selection that comes with the Kindle, doesn't work.
I have tried using the Other selection and entering the pop3/smtp servers and Ports from AT&T's email instructions, doesn't work.
Has anyone had success in setting this up? If so, please try to recall the settings you used. This is making me crazy.
Actually, I had issues the 1st time I tried - but I think there were issues with sbcglobal.net because the 2nd time I tried, it worked fine.
Gave it my user name, including @sbcglobal.net
Gave it the password
Clicked on Next and away I went.
I do find that if I have < 2 bars on my connection, it is sometimes difficult to do anything.
There is an easy to use Android App on Kindle Fires that can be used for multiple email addresses. Its very good.
Search for "email"
Select the app called "email", it has a picture of a white envelope with a heart on the seal side.
Select the lined box in the upper right corner, and select Settings.
Select Add Account.
Put in the Name, email address +/- an identifying word.
Default requires active selection
It recognizes Yahoo and connects without manual input of settings.
PS: this app has the capacity to save emails in folders.
The issue for me was just checking the box in your email settings on your main PC. The box that says "leave a copy on the server for xx days"
Without checking this the portable device will only share in any emails received while it's on, because the server is dumping the emails.
checking this box also allows you to use web mail, unless you turn your PC off when you go on vacation.
