I have tried numerous times to set up email on my Android phone and every time I get a "Security Warning" "There are problems with the security for this site" and when I press "Continue" it comes back to the warning and will not load....Help!

I have no magic pill for your problem.  One thing to check is the date and time on the Android device.  It's probably right but an incorrect date can make certificates appear expired or bogus causing the bad certificate waning.  Just one thing to check off the list for what's causing this.

When attempting to set up my android device yesterday, I was having similar problems, getting that message. After several tries, I finally realized that the instruction said for Security type: SSL (Accept all certificates), and I had picked the SSL option, and not the SSL (Accept all certificates).

With that option selected for both incoming and outgoing mail, things finished up and my phone was receiving and sending email without a hitch.

Thanks for the follow-up.  I get my email at Network Solutions so all this is Greek to me except the date thing which is pretty much universal.

Hello Robert, I understand this is frustrating. To get this issue resolved quickly I would suggest giving our Customer Care line a call at 1-855-463-9333 so they can address your android warning. There may be some configuration steps that need to be adjusted. Thank you.
