RoadRunner Email is a Time Warner Cable Internet service. Back in the day, Time Warner's broadband Internet access was known as RoadRunner high speed, hence the name of the email service. Most RoadRunner mail accounts often have an abbreviation of the city or region somewhere in the email addresses. However, as of 2012, the service has been rebranded as simply Time Warner Cable Internet.
Access to the email account is restricted to those who have Time Warner accounts and can be accessed online via webmail or through the use of an email client. Here's where the Android email client comes into play. Users complain that the setup process is too difficult and default to setting up their email settings through Gmail. However, here's how to correctly sync your account through the Android Email app.
