    Hey everybody,
    I'm having a problem with my email on an ipod touch 2G. I have 2 email accounts and they are both pop3. 1 of them works perfectly, but the other one sometimes gives an error that it has the wrong username and password when collecting new mail. When I press refresh like 10 times it sometimes works again, very strange!
    Can anybody explain to me what's wrong? It has nothing to do with multiple sessions (on my computer for example), cause that's allowed..

    Thanks

    It only works if you are jailbroken. If you are then go to cydia and search for freepops.

    Erm, don't tell me the mail app is just for @me.com addresses? Then why my other pop3 email (even on the same server) works perfectly?
    And I heard that my ipod touch could get unstable and slower if I jailbreak it..

    I wouldn't jailbreak it anyways. As for WHY it doesn't work, who is your email provider?

    I have my own websites and host them on my servers at a database centre in the Netherlands..
    My provider (for outgoing needed only though) is KPN.

    So you host your own email?
