I have a near-perfectly jailbroken touch in hand, all is working well.... except Mail. It'll launch, look pretty, but when I try to set up any of my email accounts (.Mac, two POPs, one Exchange) I get "Cannot connect using SSL." All my accounts require SSL, so I'm feeling screwed. Tried on three WiFi networks, no dice. Any help would be appreciated!:(

Ditto

I too have managed to successfully jailbreak the iPod Touch but Yahoo Mail isn't working properly.

Logging into Yahoo I get:
Cannot Get Mail
The user name or password for "imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com" is incorrect.

also gMail works for send/receiving but there doesn't seem to be a way to log out or switch to the other email engines.

BTW: I'm so happy I jailbroke my iPod Touch. :cool:

Have you turned your SSL on?

If not, do so.....go to settings>mail>whichever account name your using>advanced>turn the "SSL switch" to on.

Does that help?
