Default Bell Aliant Fibreop email

I am looking for the IMAP/TLS settings for NS Bell Aliant Fibreop so I can get email on my Android device.

Does anyone know these?

You may be able to try imap.bellaliant.net as the server address, and the same username/password you use for webmail.

Disclaimer: I don't use bellaliant.net email and don't even remember my username/password.

Nope none of it works.

This is from the Eastlink site:

If you are using an Eastlink-provided email addresses, but currently connecting with a mobile device to a different Internet service provider, you will need to configure the mail server settings of your mobile device using StartTLS or SSL encryption.

So this is what bell Aliant needs. And because the email resides with Aliant and the TLS allows mobile phones to get email regardless of internet provider and that the two don't work together means, it will never get done!

That server works fine on my wifes HTC but it doesn't work on my S3. I can receive but cannot send. Its with Level 2 now. But that server also requires turning off wifi, which I want to avoid doing, so Bell Aliant needs to add TLS support to their exchange server, its easy to do but getting someone to do it is not.

Those servers aren't Exchange. I believe it's an old email platform that may not even have support for TLS or SSL.

I couldn't get an answer from calling support, but I did get support on the Facebook page surprisingly enough and this is their response sounds like SSL TLS in the new year maybe:

I setup my Aliant email on my Nexus 7, using the standard Pop3 and SMTP servers for NB and it is working fine, though I had to use an alternate port for SMTP.
Not sure if similar settings would work for NS or not.

Incoming
Username: My Aliant email address
Password: My Aliant email password
POP3 Server: pop.nbnet.nb.ca
Security Type: None
Port: 100

Outgoing
SMTP server: smtp.nbnet.nb.ca
Security Type: None
Port: 587
Require Sign-in is not checked.
