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.

1. Launch the Email app.

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

3. Tap POP3 account.

4. Enter the following information:

Username: Your full email address with @maine.rr.com included at the end (this will vary based on your location. May be satx.rr.com or something else).
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.

5. Enter the following information:

SMTP Server: smtp-server.maine.rr.com (domain varies based on location)
Port: 587 (May also be 25)
Security type: None
Require sign-in:
Check
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.

    Just got my S4 2 days ago. I went through the steps of setting up my RR email on it. When I got the message that the server could not be found (or something like that), I hit next anyway. That happened for both outgoing and incoming, but I continued the process anyway. At the end, it said my email was successfully set up. But it isn’t. I cannot send or receive messages, although it looks as though I should be able to. Now when I go in, I can’t find the place from which I started so that I could try again. When I hit the email icon, it just takes me to email as though I could actually use it. Any idea what I need to do now?

    I got mine to work. The smtp setting is incorrect when you log in thru your android phone. It has roadrunner spelled out and mobile in front of it. Change it to the following. Then remove the IMAP server info since there isn’t one. Follow the steps and it should work.

    POP Server: pop-server.rr.com
    SMTP Server : smtp-server.rr.com
    IMAP Server : no imap.rr.com yet

    Thank you! The instruction was perfect, the frustration was kicking in and you truly helped my Sunday morning have a much better introduction. I have a new phone and setting things up and get a gal very cranky. Thank you again for the time you took to break it down to simple terms. Have a fantastic week!

    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!
