    Red face connecting to server problems with email

    Hello, i have got an asus eee slider and love it. Only one problem: my email does not work properly. This started after a firmware update. I have the settings so that it checks for new mail often. After the update it does not seem to do that. When i push the refresh button myself, it says that it can not connect to the the server. This is strange because i am online. And because it cannot connect to the server, it will also not send my email. These will just go to the outbox.
    Once in while it will connect. Then i receive my mail and then it will send my mail. But i like it to do that right away, not hours later...
    I hope you can help me.

    Welcome to the forum!

    What type of account is it? Do you have more than 1 account configured? If yes, does this happen on the other accounts too?

    Hi

    It is an hotmail account. I have no other accounts configured to it. But on pad is a defferent button for gmail. This one works just like that one i use for hotmail, but has no problems.

    I hopes this helps to help me.

    Thank you.

    Try adding your GMail account to the Email app. Just go to Settings - Accounts & Sync - Add - Email - Enter your GMail credentials.

    This will help determine if it is your Hotmail account acting up, or if it is the EMail app.

    I personally stopped using GMail/Email about 6 months ago when I discovered Kaiten. Much better features (like Select All for emptying trash, search function, ability to browse through my contacts when selecting recipients and many more).

    It costs $5, but IMO it is well worth the $5.

    Hi I have the same problem. I managed to get my ASUS to connect to the server today for the firsttime since 18th June. Now it won't work again. I've tried the options given above, but as a new ASUS owner I'm feeling very frustrated with it! Cn anyone help?
    Thanks in advance...

    Same problem. If you download the hotmail app from the market this is a sort of solution. But id prefer the default email app to work with hotmail but cant find a solution.

    I'm also having this problem on my TF201 - I think it has only come on since the last firmware update.

    I use the stock email app because I like it and personally I prefer it to K9 and Kaiten (don't shoot me down in flames, just personal preference!)

    Now I regularly get 'unable to connect to server' errors seemingly at random and only with the stock email app attached to my hotmail account.

    anyone managed to get to the bottom of this one yet...?
