    POP Mail - "Connection Error" when From contains special chars like "詹姆士"

    I'm hoping that someone has an idea that I'm overlooking.

    Yesterday - I had POP3 access setup to my ISP.
    Emails were displaying on my phone.

    Today I was at work, and added my work Exchange account.
    (Works great on the $30 data plan, calendar syncs and everything)

    I went back to look at my personal mail - and I keep getting a yellow popup that reads:
    "Connection Error"

    At one point, I thought maybe it worked when on my home WiFi - but not elsewhere... but I'm home now and proven that theory wrong.

    I've deleted the account, attempted to recreate it - and have validated my settings against my laptop a dozen times, always with the same results....


    Anyone have any ideas?
    I'm tempted to play with a pop account at a different ISP to see if I have luck there...

    Check your port number.

    Pop: 110
    SMTP: 25

    Both match my laptop, and inbound had worked last night...

    Apparently I'm not alone - google turned up threads of others having similar issues... magically appearing & resolving themselves.


    I tried K-9, and while that failed - I get a wonderful stack trace in an error log...

    java.lang.NumberFormatException: unable to parse
    '<c04e4e72074d523f2660c781d855b8cc@501stforums.com>' as integer

    Based on the package name - I presume that this is an underlying issue in android's POP3 framework....

    Anyone have ideas on a useful place to let the developers know?
    It seems to me that having a stack trace and guilty message goes a long way to resolving things.

    My email is "fixed" for the moment...
    I had one email come in last night from: "詹姆士 "

    Deleting that email got things flowing again...

    Short term victory!:icon_ banana:

    But it would be good to see POP3 email stable....

    Still new to android, so if a mod can point me toward a place to place a proper bug report, it would be appreciated.

    Amusingly - I got another email from this person, and the email came back...

    Removed it from the pop server, and back in business.

    Without clicking on your link I see you have Yahoo Mail. That's a problem in itself. Are you running stock 2.1 or are you running a custom ROM?

    I have the stock 2.1 set up.

    I think I'm going to try pushing the yahoo mail to gmail. Any other suggestions?
