[Q] Subtle Email Failure
Please excuse me if this has been covered; I've searched for it but couldn't find it and after struggling to make this thing work for six months, I'm getting desperate!
I have a Galaxy S2 GT-I900 running Android 4.1.2, baseband version I9100XXMS2, firmware update is PDA:LSW/PHONE:MS2/CSC:LS5 (XEU)
It does everything asked of it and I'm impressed after running an XDA Orbit for some years; but there are two problems with it (apart from the dreadful KIES syncing software!):
First, whilst it will download emails on command for a while, sooner or later it simply stops; the progress indicator stops responding. I can get it to start again by removing the simcard and the battery, reinstalling and rebooting, but sometimes I have to do this three or four times a day!
Second, I think I did, once, manage to send an email, but it was a long time ago........might be mistaken.
I've deleted and re-entered my email account details dozens of times (all three accounts are affected simultaneously) both on my own and under the supervision of an o2 "consultant"; after months of badgering, I persuaded o2 to send me a new simcard, but the problem remains. I'm beginning to suspect that the baseband version is wrong-I read somewhere that the correct one for this phone is I900DXLSD, but not being an expert, I wouldn't be sure.
My main email account is with TalkTalk (been with them since they were lineone), it's POP3 and I have enabled data download and switched off sign-in/authentication required. I'm using smtp.o2.co.uk for outbound (as I always have, although just to be sure, I have tested it with smtp.tiscali etc without success).
I'm back with my trusty XDA now (which works fine, if a little slow!) as the Galaxy is of limited use without email; if I can't get this to work it'll have to go in the hi-tech junk drawer or be subjected to a float-test which I suspect it will fail!
Once again, if this has been covered, I couldn't find it; sorry for the long post. Anyone got any ideas?
