Scrolling through your emails can be a tedious task, especially if your inbox is overflowing. It’s not like you’re training your thumb to go for the gold in this Summer’s trackball olympics or anything right? Here is a much faster way to get the job done…
Press “t” for top and “b” for bottom when you are in your inbox. That’s it. Simple enough, right?
This shortcut works for your email and text messages on most blackberry devices. This is also a great little trick if your trackball is being unresponsive. For a complete list of shortcuts, please visit Blackberry Shortcut Keys.
So, you are getting multiple text messages from “6250” that say VZWNMN:1 over and over and over and over and over and…(I’m actually trying to be as redundantly annoying and tedious as these the text messages themselves). Well, are you annoyed? Of course you are! Here is an explanation of what they are exactly, but more importantly how you can make them..
Here is a cliff notes version of what is causing these unwanted texts:
Verizon introduced a new free feature some time ago called “sync and connect,” and this allows smartphone users to view an all-in-one inbox online of all of their email account messages. This includes access to their email accounts through My Verizon, and basically users are getting alerts via text message when a new email hits their inbox. You caaaaaaaaan add this number to your block list to keep your phone from getting these alerts, but this is really only the equivalent of putting a bandaid on on the issue to mask the problem.

For some reason Comcast email accounts do not seem to like the company of smartphones very much, at least when they are added as an account through the native email application on the phone. Fret not, persistence will prevail, and you will get that little sucker on there if it’s the last thing you do eh. Did I really just type eh? Apparently, I’ve gone Canadian (not really) and also suffer from ADD. Okie dokie back to the topic at hand…the following server settings are the ones that are currently working. When adding the account, choose Other as the type of account to be added.
INCOMING SERVER SETTINGS
Server = mail.comcast.net
If the email address is email@example.com, the username will be example (the park before the @sign) and the password is your Comcast email password.
Security = SSL
Port = 995
OUTGOING SERVER SETTINGS
Server = smtp.comcast.net
Username is the same as above.
Security = SSL
Port = 587
If for any reason these settings are not working for you, you can always download the Xfinity App and access your email in this fashion.
Also, If anyone notices that these server settings become invalid or are not working for you for this account type or any of the other email accounts for that matter, feel free to email me, and I will find the updated settings and/or do my best to help.
Hmmm…well…perhaps you do, actually you are pretty darn sure you do, but where is it?! Right about now you’re thinking, “Why is my mailbox empty? It was working an hour ago!”
If you have found yourself in this situation when trying to check your AOL mail on your smartphone, then this post is for you. Read on…
Most, if not all smartphones will give you the option to set up an AOL account through the native email app on your device. I actually prefer to bypass this option and do the legwork myself. Let me explain.
1. When asked what type of account you would like to add, choose “Other.”
2. After entering your email address and password, choose Manual Setup.
If you are having problems setting up your yahoo mail on your Android or iOS device try setting it up as an “Other”. By choosing this option you will need to manually type in the server settings listed below. Also, if there is an option for “manual setup,” choose this as well.
Incoming Server Settings
Username: firstname.lastname@example.org (enter in your complete yahoo email address) Password: Enter in your yahoo email password IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com Port: 143 Security Type: None IMAP Path Prefix: Leave blank / Optional
