    Tip: POP3 is a version of the post office protocol that is used to store and retrieve e-mail or internet mail messages from a server. IMAP4 is a version of the internet message access protocol that lets you access and manage e-mail messages while the messages are still on the e-mail server. You can then choose which messages to download to your device.

  4. In Incoming mail server, enter the name of the remote server that receives your e-mail, and select Next.
  5. In Outgoing mail server, enter the name of the remote server that sends your e-mail, and select Next. Depending on your mobile operator, you might have to use your mobile operator's outgoing mail server instead of your e-mail provider's.
