Setup issues using Postie Plugin (4 posts)

    Postie v 1.4.40
    Using WP through 1and1.co.uk - recently transferred.
    Set up
    Protocol - pop3
    Port 110
    Mail Server pop.1and1.co.uk

    confused about which mailuserid and password to use as none of the ones I have tried seem to work.


    Clearly I must be doing something wrong

    Try asking for support here :

    Did you try the SMTP account on a mail app before ?
    Mailuserid often requires to add the domain, too, something like myaddress@mydomain.com, not only myaddress.

    thank you for this - but it didn't help!!
    the smtp option failed the connection test so i guess it's the pop that's needed.
    i have tried all the email addresses i have registered and none pass the authentication step

    SMTP is for sending email, POP is for receiving email.
