Android: Setup RoadRunner Email

If you wish to setup RoadRunner Email on your Android smartphone, it can be difficult to actually get it to work. Some people have given up and just setup their RoadRunner email to work through Gmail. You can get it working directly with the Android Email app though. Just use these steps.

2. Enter your RoadRunner email address and password, then tap Manual Setup.

Password: Your RoadRunner email password.
POP3 server: pop-server.maine.rr.com (this will vary based on your location)
Port: 110
Security type: None

When done, scroll down and tap Next.

Username: username@maine
.rr.com (domain varies based on location)
Password: Your RoadRunner email password.

Tap Next.

6. Give the account a name. It doesn’t really matter what it is. The Your name field should be filled out with the name of the person or place your email is coming from when it’s received.

7. Click Done.

You’ve successfully setup your RoadRunner email account on your Android device.

    After talking with Time Warner and Verizon techs many times, I gave up on my outgoing email working till I read this forum. Checking the “login required” box is the key to it working. I don’t remember having to do this in the past but after checking that box, it works perfect!
