Setting up email on smart phone with folders on Android

Hi

I am having trouble settiing up emai on my smart phone. I can set it up ok but cannot get all my folders.

 

I have followed the guides as listed (even though some is contradictory) using Imap or Pop3 with and without SSL.

 

Please can someone give me a step by step guide (dont refer me to the links please as some say use IMAP and some say since you have changed from yahoo use pop3) i have done both - neither work!

I dont know what to do!!

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Setting up email on smart phone with folders on Android

To see the folders that are on the BT servers you will need to set your phone email up as an IMAP account. You can use the onboard app or download an email app. I use the Aquamail App and find it very good and was easy to set up.

 

If you use the onboard app make sure you set it up manually and select IMAP. The Aquamail App more or less sets itself up but if needed youuse the same settings.

 

The settings you need are:

 

Incoming: 

Username : xxxx@btinternet.com

Password: xxxxxxxx

IMAP Server: mail.btinternet.com

Security: None

Port:993

 

Outgoing:

SMTP Server: mail.btinternet.com

Security type: None

Port: 465

User Name: xxxxx@btinternet.com

Password:xxxxxxx

Email check frequency: your choice

Sync Email: Tick box

Notify: your choice
