    I've been using native email happily on my Playbook to access both my work (Exchange) and personal (Century LInk/Q.com) email. But when I bridge, only the work account works (most of the time). I put up with this waiting for the bridge and OS upgrades, but the problem persists. Any idea why a configuration that works for wi-fi access no longer works when using Bridge?

    Bridge is accessing your email through your phone. Wifi is not. So your config on your phone is the issue, not the playbook config.

    I'm using the Playbook native email not the bridged email on my 9650. (For that matter the personal email account works on my 9650)

    I get Native PlayBook Gmail while bridged but not yahoo. I have no clue why it is this way but it's a good question and I'd like to know as well. I remember when Native email only worked with wifi so while bridge doesn't work with all my accounts, I'm glad it now works with some.

    I get same problem. I have 3 email a/c's yahoo and two gmail a/c's . When. I am not connected to a wifi the yahoo a/c on the playbook comes up with a connection error but not the gmail ones. What i think is happening is that the yahoo a/c is a pop3 and the gmail is imap. For some silly reason blackberry have made it so that the playbook cant pop3 even though i have set up the email client on the playbook as imap the email client for yahoo on the phone is pop3 . Hopefully bb10 phones will not need to pop3 .

    After upgrading to OS 2.1.1032, only message headers are shown in POP3 e-mail account om my playbook, not body of messages.
    I have no BB phone and don't use BB bridge.

    I thought unless it was an activesync account, like Gmail, hotmail its always been said it will only work over wifi? At least I remember reading that.

    Edit: found it
