    Email settings question


    Hi,

    I was wondering if someone could verify this for me. When I setup my PC and phone, should the setting on both be the same on both the devices when it comes to both devices:

    Pop.xxxx.com
    smtp.xxxx.com

    one set up this way being my pc:

    pop.xxxx.com
    smtp.xxxx.com

    and on my phone:

    imap.xxxx.com
    smtp.yyyy.net

    or

    pop.xxxx.com
    smtp.yyyy.com

    or

    android.pop.xxxx.com
    android.smtp.xxxx.com

    or
    android.imap,xxxx.com
    android.smtp.yyyy.com

    or

    android.imap,xxxx.com
    android.smtp.yyyy.net

    Shouldnt they be identical on both pc and phone in order to work correctly?

    thx

    It will depends if you want to use POP (Locally stored mail) or IMAP (server-side stored mail) (IMAP is more popular for those using email on more than one device). Whichever you choose, they will be the same setting for both device.

    The exception is if the email provider uses different ports for mobile devices. However, most have changed to using the same ports and settings for all devices.
