Using a Mobile Phone with Your Email
You can always use Web-Based Email to send and receive email messages. But you also can view your email with an email client. To access your email on your mobile phone, add an account with the settings outlined below.
Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) lets you access email stored on a mail server from multiple computers and devices without transferring them between computers. Post Office Protocol (POP) lets you retrieve email from a remote server through your third-party email client.
BEFORE YOU START: To set up your device with your email, you need to know your POP or IMAP Email Server Settings and ports. To find them, got to the InfoCenter and write down the information that displays under Email Server Settings.
To Use a Mobile Phone with Your Email
- Create an account with your mobile phone.
- Locate the account settings and set the following:
