    POP/APOP/IMAP

    if you create a POP3 email account on your phone, and you have a POP3 email acount on your home computer, while on the road and checking email, all new email will be downloaded to your phone. When you get home and check mail it will not download a second time. (normally, although you can leave a copy on server)

    A better option would be to set up an IMAP email account on both your phone and home computer. This way your email is shared across both devices. And, also accessible via Webmail. If space is an issue on your account, create an IMAP on the phone only. Now you get email while on the road, and when you get home and check email from your computer and its POP3 account, all email on server would be downloaded off server. Next time the phone syncs to the server there will be no mail to sync.

    I just want to be able to view my email on my phone:
    like I get an email now its in my inbox
    then I can go on my phone, view it and close it.
    And it will still be in my inbox

    mail.yourdomain.com for incoming and outgoing is not working for you?

    You might do better to speak with your host about this. They can assist you with the proper settings required for their server.

    This is what I got for outgoing:
    (my host offered me this hosting with limited support as it was free with another server)
    A tick box saying: Login required
    Username:
    SMTP Server:
    Security: None/SSL/TLS
    Server Port:

    Any idea on how to fill them in?

    The username is going to be your e-mail address, with an at sign (@) instead of an amphersand.

    The SMTP server is going to be whatever your host has configured - typically mail.domain.tld, but not always.

    None/SSL/TLS will depend on whether you want to use an SSL certificate and whether the host is configured for it.

    The port will be 25 for SMTP, unless you know it is set differently on the server. Also, some ISPs block their customers from sending mail to port 25, so you may need to ask your ISP if this is the case. If so, some hosts offer an alternate port for those who cannot connect to port 25.

    Only your host knows for sure the hostname you should use for the SMTP server, and whether SMTP is offered on a port other than 25 (you may not need this; your ISP would know for sure if 25 is blocked). It is unfortunate that your host is not being more helpful, but they are the only entity in position to give you authoritative answers to your questions.

    I believe all you need is already posted to this thread.

    Limited support must be really limited, as in none, if he can't even support setting up an email account.

    Thank you for this information, I have contacted my host for the SMTP server details.
