    Just bought wife Droid but cannot connect to Mindspring email. Error states wrong username/password but it is correct. Any ideals on how to correct this? Thanks

    Yeah, this drove me nuts for a while. Here's what finally worked for me:

    1st screen should be obvious: your full email address (with "@mindspring.com") & password
    check the box if this is your default account for outgoing mail

    2nd screen - type of account
    Click on "POP3."

    After you click "POP3" many of the fields on the next two screens will be filled in for you, but not all of them are correct. I've highlighted the settings you need to change in bold.

    3rd screen - Incoming server settings
    Username: <yourname> (without "@mindspring.com")
    Password: <your password>
    POP3 server: pop.mindspring.com
    Port: 110
    Security type: none
    Delete email from server: Never*

    * [assuming you also want to view your email on your home computer]

    When you click "Next" you will see a progress bar for a moment, and if everything is okay, you'll be at the Outgoing server settings

    4th screen - Outgoing server settings
    SMTP server: smtpauth.earthlink.net
    Port: 587
    Security type: TLS (Accept all certificates)
    Require sign-in: checked
    Username: <yourname>@mindspring.com
    Password: <your password>

    After you click "Next," you're on your own. Set how often you want the phone to check your email, how you want to be notified, etc.

    I hope this helps...
