    anyone else having trouble with this app? I can sign into Yahoo messenger, but when I try to save my login info for Yahoo mail I get an error message, "your account cannot be validated. please check your login information." I have tried over and over like 20 times and have also reinstalled the app. I have latest version 1.00.12. anyone?

    Re: LG Rumor Touch Email + IM app

    this has to be the worst email client on any platform since messages were scratched on rocks and flung at the recipients. in addition to the problem you describe, it also throws the error "you haven't used this application for some time; do you want to continue?" -- when it was used five minutes ago. it regularly loses account information. there is no way to be rid of the long stream of yahoo-aol-gmail templates so one can go straight to his actual email account without scrolling -- nor is there a way to pull that account up by itself and put it on the main menu. there is no way to tell it to delete a message on the phone without deleting it on the server. it is by far the weakest application not just for email but for any purpose that i have ever seen. and half the time it doesn't work at all.

    i think that about covers it.

    One thing I've noticed is that when you enter your password, it make the first letter/number a capital. This often leads to incorrect logins. The way to fix is to use the space bar and then enter password, and then go back and backspace that original space.

    i don't do gmail.

    but because of the terrible email-im application, i took the otherwise interesting rumor touch back, swallowed hard, and got the blackberry. i've had two others, and gotta say they have it all sorted out, imho.

    wish the lg had worked out -- it might have been fun.

    I found one answer....change the incoming port settings to Port 110
    The default port number didn't work....I simply took the port number off my ipod touch settings and it worked!
    Getting comcast email on the phone....won't open attachments, though
