Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

Do you receive this error message if you're connected to a specific network? For example mobile network or a Wi-Fi network?

Re: “Could not open connection to server”

That message implies that your pop settings are wrong or your smtp settings are wrong hence why it won't open a connection to something that as far as your phone thinks isn't actually there

Re: “Could not open connection to server”

But have you been able to sync/ refresh your emails before? Perhaps you have changed the password recently for your Exchange account, then you need to update it in your phone too. This can be done via Settings > Exchange ActiveSync > Account settings > your@account > Incoming settings.

Re: “Could not open connection to server”

It sounds like something with the internet connection, have you tried with the mobile network? Perhaps you could try another Email application? For Yahoo/hotmail you can try K-9 Mail which can be found via Google Play store and for Exchange, you can try TouchDown.

Re: “Could not open connection to server”

Hi, I am having the same problem. Did you find a solution?

 

I was using E-mail client on my Xperia Z1 for more then a year, and now it seas “Could not open connection to server”.

the thing is it is syncing sent items and not the inbox and incoming mail, when i sent an Email then Email is send correctly.

 

So the only problem is that I don't get new Emails on my phone.

 

I tried deleting the account and setting it up again, it worked for the first time when it was syncing and syncked new Emails after it was back to the old problem...

 

Please help.
