Always setup email accounts on mobile phones as IMAP.
IMAP = Internet Message Access Protocol. This allows the user to view the emails from the server and is generally much faster than POP. This is also handy when emails are setup on multiple devices, as every device view the mail and synchronize at the same time.
Emails setup has always been working with the following default settings:
1. Incoming Mail Server (IMAP) – Username & Password.Requires no Authentication
2. Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) – . Outgoing Server requires Authentication, either the same as incoming or plain Password Authentication
3. Incoming & Outgoing Mail Server – mail.domain.tld (For example: mail.simpson.co.za)
