I use BTYahoo, but obtain results via Thunderbird with Incoming Port set to 993 & Outgoing to 465
The Security type is set to SSL/TLS.
I now wish to set up E Mail on a Huawei Tablet do I use the same Port settings?
Thanks for clarification
When I set the "Incoming" Port on the Huawei to 993, it does not accept this & reverts to 995.
Also is this a problem?
When setting up the email account select manual set up.
If it does not offer that option just enter a false email address and or password and the set up will fail and then it will offer you the manual option.
Once you have the option selct IMAP
Have tried to set up a new account using false e mail/password.
Huawei rejects this.
Also I've tried to set up a new account with my e mail address & Password, but Huawei, says it's duplicate a/c & will not let me go any further.
The original account was set up by another person, who I think set it as a POP account which is incorrect (when viewed against my settings in Thunderbird)
Seems logical that I should just be able to modify the Huawei a/c from POP to Imap but can't see how, also google does not advise.
When it rejects it, it should give the option to set it up manually at the foot of the screen.
You can not swap from POP3 to IMAP on the fly.
If you already have your email account set up you will need to delete it from the device first before trying to set it up again as an IMAP account.
