Optimum Online in the Mail Application

Does anybody know how to use optimum online as an email service. I type in the incoming and outgoing address which is mail.optonline.net but it says it doesn't work, but i have heard people have done it

See if this helps...

I had a little trouble too, but got it to work with the following account setup. Oddly enough, my PC mail application points to a server called "mail-hub.optonline.net" yet the iPod mail app only works when I specify "mail.optonline.net".

Name: type your name here
Address: xxxxxxxxxx@optonline.net
Description: whatever you want to put here

Incoming Mail Server
Host Name: mail.optonline.net
User Name: xxxxxxxxxx (don't add "@optonline.net" here, but put what goes before it)
Password: your password here

Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)
Host Name: mail.optonline.net
User Name: xxxxxxxxxx (don't add "@optonline.net" here, but put what goes before it)
Password: your password here


My other settings under the "Advanced" tab look like this...

Deleted Messages
Remove: Never

Incoming Settings:
Use SSL: OFF
Authentication: Password
Delete from Server: Never
Server Port: 110

Outgoing Settings:
Use SSL: OFF
Authentication: Password
Delete from Server: Never
Server Port: 587


Oh, one more thing... after you save your account settings, you may need to turn off WIFI, then "power off"... then "power on" turn WIFI back on and try to get mail again after it connects.

Hope this helps,
