    I can't setup Roadrunner email. Keep getting an error message. AOL setup just fine. Any suggestions?

    Haven't tried on an iPad but I setup 2 laptops a couple of years ago for clients that had RR Email and it's tough. To stop spam they do not allow you to send email through there servers from outside of their network (such as while on 3-g or hotspot wifi). I don't remember it being hard to collect email just send, you will have to come up with another service to send email.

    It is tricky getting it set up for Roadrunner. Unfortunately, I did not save instructions for what I did once I figured it out, but I'll give it a shot.

    Address = your email address
    Description = whatever you are going to call this email address - only important if you are setting up multiples

    Incoming Mail Server
    Host Name = pop-server.yourcity.rr.com
    where yourcity = whatever rr geographic location you are in
    User Name = login (part before the @ in email address)
    Password = xxxxxxx

    SMTP
    smtp-server.yourcity.rr.com set to ON and then select that section to keep going

    Host Name = smtp-server.yourcity.rr.com
    leave User Name and Password = blank
    Use SSL = leave OFF
    Authentication = set to Password
    Server Port = 587 (that # is important)
    then select DONE

    Now go to ADVANCED

    Incoming Settings
    Use SSL = leave OFF
    Authentication = Password
    Server Port = 110 (again, important #)

    If these do not work for you, try the thread below, you will get some info, but as I recall, I still had to go elsewhere for the solution.
