Under Mail V Prefs => More -> Rules, "When connecting" should be set to "Download mail" and not "Browse mail." Setting to "Browse" may cause your connection to not terminate as expected.

I have other ideas… But look at this first.

I've chosen that setting...and, after searching the NTLK archives, I found this:

I was going to suggest that ;-)

Seriously, thanks for that reminder!

NOTE TO SELF (AGAIN): When you're having problems with Mail V (as I  
have been these past couple months) deleting the Mail V setups and  
starting with new ones can fix problems. Especially when you've edited  
the setups over and over. Guess what I'll be doing next.

Sent using an iNewt 3G Touch.

I had decided to try another email provider to see if this was a problem unique to EarthLink. I added an alias to my me.com account...and after reading the above, I too tried deleting my email setups and creating new Email Access ones.

It worked...so well, in fact, that I started to download all my me.com email (most of which is from NTLK)...there were 1034 pieces, so I stopped it. But, it seemed to work well...or, at least, better.

BUT, I have a NEW problem: how do I "single out" (filter?) and download the email from the alias I created (newtonphoenix), on Mobile Me, and not all the rest of it?

I tried setting up the filter on Mail V to ignore all but newtonphoenix at mecom...but I couldn't get it set up properly.

Does anyone have their MobileMe configured to use an alias, and it's working properly and receiving/sending email on a Newton?

Thanks in advance,
