    what are the sprint pop and imap server names. I thought I tried to access my email with pop.sprintpcs.com and it would not work.

    I just tried again but it failed to authenticate. Do you need to use anything special as username? I tried the amail address I set up and also my phone number.

    I originally went with my Comcast POP server. This worked fine for a short while then the SMTP (outgoing mail) stopped working. Well I fiddled with it for a bit and finally gave up in disgust until I stumbled across this thread.

    I just set up Sprint POP on the Handspring beta mail client (using v1.02beta). Its pretty simple to do so.


    1. Call sprint on a landline 888.715.4588
    2. Request POP mail activation
    3. Request a POP password (NOTE: this is different then your sprint account password)
    4. Get an Email client on your Treo
    5. Config for beta mail client:

    a. menu --> VIEW --> Edit accounts --> New
    b. Pick any type. You can edit the fields afterwards. I chose Comcast
    c. Complete each tab shown below

    TAB: NAME

    ACCOUNT NAME: Sprint (or whatever you want to call the account)
    FULL NAME: put in your name (ie., John Smith)
    EMail ADDRESS: your address (ie., jsmith01@sprintpcs.com)
    USER NAME: your sprint userID (ie., jsmith01)
    PASSWORD: your new sprint POP password (call sprint for this)

    TAB: SERVER

    Incoming POP3 Server: pop.sprintpcs.com
    Outgoing SMTP server: smtp.sprintpcs.com

    TAB: ADVANCED

    Leave mail on server: check or uncheck per your preference
    SSL required for POP3: unchecked
    SSL required for SMTP: unchecked

    Outgoing mail server:
    USER NAME: your sprint info (ie., jsmith01@sprintpcs.com note you need the @sprintpcs here)
    PASSWORD: your new sprint PCS POP password

    d. Hit OK
    e. Hit Done
    F. You are good to go. Hit SEND AND RECEIVE button to test.


    It works flawlessly now and is much faster then the comcast SEND/RECEIVE cycle for some reason. Anyways, Im happy with it and would recommend it.

    .

    You should be able to just go online at www.sprintpcs.com and set up your Sprint e-mail. I have never had to call in on any of my four lines to get e-mail activated.

    How do you set up a Sprint IMAP account?
    I already have a POP account, but it is slow.
    Please post details.

    you can also set up an account with your original comcast pop info and sprints smtp that will work great to pick-up your comcast mail. It appears there are problems accessing non-sprint smtp servers.
