Next, configure your mobile phone by locating the POP settings and configure them as following:

  1. Email/Username: Your full email address.
  2. Password: Your email account password.
  3. Incoming Mail Server: For POP or IMAP accounts use
  4. Outgoing Mail Server: For POP or IMAP accounts use
  5. Incoming Port 110 (for POP accounts).
  6. Incoming Port 143 (for IMAP accounts).
  7. Outgoing Port 587 (for both IMAP and POP accounts).

For further assistance with a specific mobile device, please see the device provider’s help documentation:




Additional tip for iPhone users: If you receive the error message “This Certificate for your domain is not Valid”, ignore it. Make sure you go into Advanced settings in Mail Settings, turn off SSL, and change the incoming port to 110 (do not use 995!).
