    Default Playbook email not connecting on my work wifi

    Hi there
    The playbook is great and I have several email accounts set up and working whilst using my home wifi.
    I have brought the playbook into my place of work and have successfully connected to the corporate wifi (via a proxy server) & can successfully browse the web.

    The issue I have is that none of the my email accounts are connecting?? Will this be down to the proxy server or perhaps the corporarate firewall??

    Any ideas.

    Could be firewall blocking external email. We have a similar setup where I work, you get internet but hotmail etc are blocked. I'd suggest using your 9800 via bridge if you need to get your emails.

    Thanks SonySandy - I did wonder if it might be firewall related.

    If I use the bridge function for email - would any browsing still go through the wifi or does it all go via the bridging connection?

    Regards
