photos from the treo 650 to flickr

My moblog profReady for a new tutorial? This is for people who have a mobile phone with email to post photos to Flickr. I have a Treo 650. This may work for your device if you tweak the settings.

I can’t take credit for this tutorial though. My friend Keith figured it out and emailed me the directions.

He says:

There are 3 steps to this Web 2.0 activity!!!

  1. Set up Flickr
  2. Set up Gmail
  3. Set up Versamail

Set up Flickr

Set up Google to use POP

  1. Log into your gmail account
  2. Click on Settings in upper right corner
  3. Click on Forwarding and POP in the yellow navigation area

Set up Versamail on Treo

  1. On gmail.com mail settings, follow the link on Configuration Instructions
  2. I chose the Other set of instructions
  3. On the Treo, launch Versamail.
  • Tap the top menu and choose Accounts.
  • New account
  • Account name: Gmail (is what I used. Use whatever you want.)
  • Mail Service: Other (since gmail isn’t there! Appears you could also set up Versamail through your ISP account. I haven’t done that.)
  • Protocol: POP
  • Username:
  • Password:
  • Incoming mail server: pop.gmail.com (from the Gmail Other settings page. )
  • Outgoing mail server: smtp.gmail.com
  • Select Advanced
  • Incoming server settings: Port 995, Checkmark the User Secure Connection (SSL) box
  • Outgoing server settings: Port 587 (Gmail indicates this or 465, but I couldn’t get 465 to work), Checkmark User Secure Connection (SL), Checkmark Use authentication (ESMTP)
  • Username:
  • Password:
  • DONE!!!

Whew!

Keith

PS, if you blog this, take my personal info out please, especially my email address. I don’t want email requests for help!

Thanks, Keith. Whew is right! And I made the changes.

Want to see what I’ve moblogged from my Treo to Flickr so far? I’ve thought about doing a moblog of a day in the life of by posting a photo no matter where I am every hour. What do you think?

Hey, stop yawning!
