Windows Phone: Setting up Email
We know you're excited to get your email set up on your Microsoft® Windows phone. We should have your email working on your device in about 5 minutes. These steps work for most of our customers, but sometimes you might need to make some additional changes depending on where you live and which ISP(s) you use.
BEFORE YOU START: To set up a Windows phone with your email, you need to know your POP or IMAP Email Server Settings and ports. To find them, go to the InfoCenter and write down the information that displays under Email Server Settings.
NOTE: The steps to set up email on your Windows phone might be a little different depending on your make/model and your network provider. However, all the information you need to set up your account (user name, password, server settings) is in these steps. If you don't see a button you're supposed to tap, try scrolling down.
