Thanks, I'm reluctant to delete the A/c as I think I would lose all of my Contacts & am not sure they would come back if I set Huawei Mail up as IMAP with settings that I have in Thunderbird.
You shouldn't lose them, but to be on the safe side you can export your address book to a file and then import it back again afterwards.
Presumably the tablet will be using Android and you will have set up a Google account so that you can use the Playstore etc. If that is the case your contacts on the tablet will be saved in the devices contacts app and not in the email app so they will not be deleted when you delete the email account from the email app.
Firstly, let me say thanks for all of your inputs, this does help.
Yes, I have got a Google A/c set up on the Huawei, but checking this there are only approx. 60 Contacts in Google & there are 200+ in the VIP Contacts of Huawei mail.
I assume these 200+ have come from Btyahoo Contacts.
Further to that I can't find how to Export the 200+ Contacts.
So I'm in a mess!
I'm not a confident person at IT
I suspect that your contacts are stored away from the actual email app on your tablet but you can "export" then to a file if you want to "play safe".
You will want to use the "to storage" option.
Just in case you are not sure.... It is only your selected email account that is on your email app that you are deleting. You are not deleting the email app.
I bit the bullet & deleted the A/c
As you suggested my long list of Contacts were not deleted.
I then set up the Huawei with a new Account using the settings that I in Thunderbird.
Hence I now have an incoming A/c using IMAP with Port of 993,Security type SSL/TLS
Outgoing is SMTP, Port 465, Security Type SSL/TLS
BUT, and it's big one.
When I enter a name to an e mail, even though it's on the VIP Contact list within Huawei it is not coming up on the e mail address bar.
Any ideas for correction?
I know nothing about the Huawei device, but is there a setting to choose where contacts are stored? You might have to point the mail app to your contacts.
Likewise I have no idea about your tablet however I would think there will be something in the email apps settings or advance settings regarding where it will find and save any email addresses/contacts.
You should check to see where the contacts are stored. If you try to add a contact it should either show you were they are stored or it will ask where you want it stored.
