That is not working at all for me.
the server smpt.bellaliant.net is not responding. The server name in your account settings might be incorrect .............
I need a walk thru. Never had problems setting up accounts on other devices like this one.

Bell Aliant NS Sympatico Working!!
After speaking to the Bell Aliant rep I got my ns.sympatico account to work on my Playbook!! and the instructions that you listed above is what I had to use. Now I can get my emails on the Playbook directly or check it through my bridged BB 9810 Torch2. I have been using Microsoft Entourage 2004 and a legacy copy of PocketMac Sync Manager to sync my calendar to the BB 9810 which shows up on the bridged calendar.
Now that I have native email figured out does anybody know how to sync the BB 9810 calendar to the Playbook native Calendar?

Well..after not being able to set my account up on FB, ...I retryed this tonight with the info I used earlier with 110 and 25 ports.(like Victor66 posted) and BINGO it contacted and set up my email account to the playbook.. all is well now..
Back on my laptop I had to sync my account there and it brought all my emails that I had handled on BB PB on line there..
So it appears all is working for me.. why it wouldnt go earlier today and yesterday after several attempts to connect with this info is beyond me...

Check if you can use your Aliant account as hotmail, I know I can use my Sympatico account that way. If you set it up that way instead of with smtp/pop you get full IMAP functionality, that is the deleted emails and opened emails stay synced with your account and check ontacts and calendar syncs as well.

I am having problems sending email to my sympatico account. I can receive email no problem on my playbook, but sending messages, I get a pop-up saying "There was an interruption in sending this message"
I can send a message to my wife's sympatico account, but to no others. I have googled the problem endlessly, have read several forum threads about not using SSL, not using an SMTP password or username, all of which I tried, to no avail.
I'm surprised this problem hasn't been figured out yet after several months.
settings: smtp server: smtp.bellaliant.net
smtp port: 25
Note - the smtp password keeps showing up, even though I've deleted it several times now. there is no smtp username entered.

The only other time I had that problem, I was using free hotel wifi while on vacation.
Here is my settings:
Use SSL: Off
SMTP Username: left blank
SMTP Password: left blank
SMTP Server: smtp.bellaliant.net
SMTP Port: 25
SMTP Encryption: off

Thks - those are the same settings I am using.
And, I am trying to use this through a free wifi connection. Last week, I tried at Halifax airport, Toronto airport, hotel in vancouver, and now hotel in Victoria. No dice. I'll try it later in the week when I'm back home on my own network.
However, if it only works at home - then this email feature will be totally useless to me.
