When I try adding my email account from work through the pop tab on email. Then I get the error "Cannot connect using SSL would you like to try without SSL?"

WTH does that mean? And it still doesn't connect without SSL anyway.

yeah I'm sure. I do have openSSH on my phone. It says, "Cannot connect using SSL, would you like to try connecting without?"

SSL is Secure Sockets Layer and is just a secure email connection. Most of the time connections do not use it. If you have tried both SSL on and SSL off, I would remove all the settings you put in the email settings and retype them again. There may be a comma instead of a period (yet showing as a period when you look at it) or other similar problem.

Well I tried deleting the whole account and then retrying typing out everything exactly how my account properties look in my Outlook Epxress and I get this message...

"Cannot Connect Using SSL
Do you want to try setting up the account without SSL?"


If I click YES, then it just gets stuck on the "Verifyinh POP account information" and never goes to anything new....

SSL (https) uses port 443 and normal http uses port 80. Your email account provider might have disabled port 80 not allowing you to use normal http instead of SSL.
