I have a talktalk email account and i am having trouble setting it up on my samsung genio slide mobile phone with vodafone. I have used the following settings :-

incoming mail = mail.talktalk.net

outgoing mail = smtp.talktalk.net

When trying to download the emails it says it fails to connect.
Has anyone tried doing this with a samsung genio slide mobile phone?
Any advice will be appreciated.
many thanks,

The problem that Talk Talk email will only you let you send email on a Talk Talk broadband connection.
Since you are on Vodafone try this link it should help.

The the best thing is to not bother with TT email and set up a Gmail address. You will find there is no problems setting it up on your mobile.

But I know there is another member who uses Hotmail's or alternitive outgoing server address and TT's incoming to get around the problem. But you will need to set up a Hotmail account on-line. It is a workaround but I do not think there is any other way.

i can't even get talk talk incoming to work. I seem to be getting closer with imap,but not sure which is the email server for incoming as far as imap is concerned.

Incoming and outgoing mail now working on talktalk with samsung mobile genio slide. I used imap4 for incoming mail. When entering username, it needs the full email address.
For outgoing mail i set up an username and password on vodafone's 360.com website. I then set up smtp.360.com as the outgoing server with smtp port 465 with SSL set to on. If anyone has problems with their samsung email feel free to ask and i can give you detailed instructions.
