I am having trouble with setting up my windstream email account on my Fire. Has anyone successfully done this and if so, who settings did you use?

Thanks

I am also having trouble setting up my windstream email account on my Fire.
If anyone has successfully done so, Please toss some "hints" this way? We have been on the phone with Kindle Support every other day for different problems since Dec. 8, and Windstream Email is the only one we haven't solved yet, Windstream told us on the phone they can't help us.

Delete the account and start over again. Only change:
pop.windstream.net for incoming
smtp.windstream.net for outgoing
leave all other settings at default. Worked for me.

The outgoing worked for me, but the incoming still will not load my emails. Any recommendations?

Outgoing is working for me as well but no luck with loading my incoming mail. Suggestions please!

Hi Jerry,
Where did you find the page to change these settings? I have looked for them.

I don't understand your question. To remove the account and start over, start the mail. press the menu icon. press @accountspress and hold and release on the account you want to remove. Choose "remove account". Create a new account and only change the 2 settings:
Incoming server - pop.windstream.net
Outgoing server - smtp.windstream.net

Sounds like you typed something wrong. Start all over again after removing the account.

Thanks . Amazon emailed me and said windstream is not compatable at this time with Kindle Fire.

Worked for me too by deleting the account and leaving the defaults.

Thank u so much! Worked like a charm. You should tell amazon to pay you!

Why would Amazon pay someone for setting up an email source they have nothing to do with??

The only way I could get it to work is.......I opened a g-mail account and have my windstream load thru g-mail........
But do not have to worry about mine now......3 weeks after buying my Kindle...Someone stole it....

I got my windstream email to work on the kindle but then it wouldn't work in Outlook. Called windstream and was told could not use it on both computer and kindle. So deleted it from kindle. Still woudn't work on Outlook. Was told to delete windstream account on Outlook and readd it. Now I have two inboxes and all my folders are in old one.
