I’ve just changed my phone from a Samsung Galaxy A3 to an A33 running Android 12. I used Samsung Smart Switch to copy all programmes & settings from the old phone to the new one. I also exported the K-9 settings from my old phone & imported them in the new phone.
I am not receiving mail. If I look in K-9 settings, account name, fetching mail, incoming mail, next, it will check incoming server settings then time out saying it cannot connect to server. It does this even if I have the phone connected to my web mail inbox. The web mail is Yahoo.
stphn, yes I still see new mail on the old phone & nothing on the new phone. I tried uninstalling K-9 & reinstalling but it’s still the same. The new phone still can’t connect when I it tries to check the incoming server settings. I compared the settings with the phones side by side to make sure they were the same. I was wrong about the account type, it is imap not pop3.
Screenshots attached, struggling with the log as it will not let me upload a .txt file.
imported K-9 settings do not include passwords, so you would need to have set that. i would think that, assuming the above settings are correct, that you should get an explicit authentication failure message on “Next”.
i believe that yahoo mail now requires use of either an app password or Oauth 2, so if you used your site-wide password (e.g., the one you use to log into your webmail account) in your setup that is likely to fail.
and at the top of the “incoming server settings” screen (above the hostname line) it has “IMAP server”, (not “POP”) correct? there seemed to be some confusion early on as to whether your account was imap or pop. these are not interchangeable and so you won’t be successful simply putting imap settings in on an account that was initially set up as pop (and vise versa).
assuming that’s the case … when you select “next” what (fairly precisely) is the error message that you get when you say it won’t connect?
It was me that was confused, Thunderbird on my PC is setup as pop3 but K-9 on my phone is imap.
When I select next it says " Checking incoming server settings…" then, after a minute or two it says "Setup could not finish, cannot connect to server (unable to connect). I select "continue & it reverts to the fetching mail page.
It’s me again, I’ve realised today that K-9 is not sending mail, same scenario, when I look at ‘settings-account-sending mail-outgoing server’, I get the same can’t connect message as before. I tried creating an app password as before but that has not worked. Any suggestions?
It might just be my Jonah touch, my brand new work PC, installed last week, went into meltdown today with a blue screen of death loop. Happy days.
