    I've set up a gmail account with my own 1st gen ipod touch, but I am trying to set up my wifes ipod touch (1st gen) with her pop account and am unable to. The account I want to set up is with her own domain, and I have entered in all the fields exactly as they are with the accounts in outlook. Incoming server is correct, username etc, all match they way I have it set up on her laptop, when I click on save it hesitates and tells me it can't connect using SSL (I don't want it to) and prompts to try without, then site there in "verifying" mode for a long time and eventually fails.

    Not sure what else to try here, I have even tried using my google account for outgoing server (smtp.google.com with username/pwd) that I use on laptops for traveling, but I'm not even sure if its the outgoing or incoming settings that are the problem. The only thing I can think of at this point is maybe the ports are wrong and ipod does not list them?

    Using 3.1 firmware on the unit.

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    thanks
