    Yahoo: Server Name: pop.att.yahoo.com port: 995 pop3 has to be activated in the Yahoo Mail options(on the PC, not on Dash or Chumby)

    what is yahoo server name?

    @lvmykyds I was able to get this working with my AOL account using the following settings. Incoming mail server name: pop.aol.com Port: 995 Username: (Your AOL username, everything BEFORE the "@aol.com") Password: (Your AOL Password) The first time I loaded this up, I had to pin the widget as it took almost five minutes to load the entire inbox, after that it was much faster.

    I love my Infocast and would love it even more if I could check my Yahoo and Hotmail msgs. These products are fantastic but the companies behind them aren't helping their customers.

    No TLS/SSL = no use. Sad.

    Chumby how about replying to the email also, instead of just viewing them

    Hello. IMAP? When? It's stopping me buying more Chumbies...

  • SteveInWA

    One more vote for SSL encryption support for the e-mail widget. This is necessary for MS Hotmail/Live Mail.

  • michael.moser

    My mail server requires an SSL connection. This doesn't seem to be supported or is there some way to enable that? Or is there a similar widget that supports SSL?

    So, WHEN are we going to get an IMAP version? It's not like it's major work chaps !!!

    After I contacted them, the powers that be made a few more changes to the widget and it resolved my problem; I now get the messages displayed. Since I also have cox maybe it was related to that particular internet provider.

    This was working well for me before the update - but now I get signed in and page display says 1/2, but no messages displayed.

    One of the best widgets after the Update !

  • cseftor

    February 27, 2010

    I liked this widget a lot but, unfortunately, after the update, this widget no longer works for me (the messages do not appear).

  • spunk_

    excellent update of the widget....

  • vilxes91

    February 26, 2010

    Oh yeah!! What a great surprise! I wasn't specting such a great improvement in this widget!! Really, thanks very much, this is the widget I use the most...

    So, are we going to get an IMAP version? Cheers!

    I have AOL and have tried to access my e-mail from my Chumby-one. I need to know what server to put in and which port to list. thanks

  • steelpaw

    It shows my Yahoo messages, but it shows (what I think is) all the HTML markup as well, making messages so difficult to read as to be more or less useless.

  • iomega7

    I customize my Chumby to read my Hotmail messages. It did it one time and since then, the Chumby no longer works with my hotmail account. The folks at Chumby need to look at this.

  • colindino

    For some reason I get the oldest 5 messages. How do I at least see the last 5 messages?

    I keep getting a "Error opening mailbox" message.

    how do I scroll down to display more e-mail messages other then the top 5 mails

    how do i set up email viewer?

  • kliehm

    October 25, 2008

    Always get an "error opening mailbox". Since there is no option to configure the connection type (like SSL) and port I assume that's the reason.

  • enalposi

    August 10, 2008

    Wow, looks like someone fixed this overnight. The error is gone and now receiving domain mail just fine. Thanks! :)

  • enalposi

    What about gmail domain name support? Please add this. It should be a simple matter of parsing the login for an @ sign and not adding gmail.com in that case. 5 min hack... ;) Thanks!

    ignore my comment,for another widet, oops.

  • beth epstein

    I opened a gmail account but when i open the widget it reads error opening mailbox.

  • alexholy

    April 21, 2008

    POP widgets are a very bad idea. At best, your mail password is stored (in clear text) at chumby.com At worst, an undisclosed third party (not covered by Chumby's privacy policy) operating the server back-end to your widget has your credentials. Very bad idea...

  • Aussieguy

    suzi9874, It's a POP3 reader and will not support IMAP servers.

  • Aussieguy

    March 27, 2008

    Contact Customer support if you're having issues. They will help you get it working.

  • ressmann

    March 24, 2008

    I tried it with a POP3-enabled Inbox. I just get a black screen and the widget tries to contact the box. Where is the problem?

  • suzi9874

    March 13, 2008

    anyone get this to work with AOL? i am using imap.aol.com and port 143 with my user name/pw combos, and no luck. thanks in advance :)

    I can't get this thing to load!!! If you ask me I'm gonna try the other programs or make my own. I think they can do much better!

  • marcmenem

    I think it fails it fails on Gmail because gmail requires secure POP authentication.

  • tonygill99

    January 23, 2008

    I use this widget a lot and it's great, but it would be so much better if it would display more than the last 5 messages and could display the text of HTML messages. Plus it's quite unstable, and opening a message regularly crashes my Chumby. Please, keep working on it to make it better and more reliable!

  • xrobevansx

    Enabled POP3 for my Gmail, entered all info including port #. Error in logging on. Tried and double checked everything I could think of. Did anyone get this to work with Gmail? Thank You

  • nkriger

    how do you view more than the first couple of messages???

  • tonygill99

    November 29, 2007

    The new message body viewer is a HUGE improvement! Next, how about adding a scroll bar to the inbox, to allow the display of more than the last 5 messages?
