POP3 is the current version of the POP (Post Office Protocol) email protocol. It creates local copies of emails and deletes the originals from the server so the emails are tied to that specific machine and cannot be accessed via any webmail or any separate client on other computers.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) allows users to log into many different email clients or webmail interfaces and view the same emails, because the emails are kept on remote email servers until the user deletes them.

How to ADD an initial email account to your Samsung Galaxy S4

 

1. From the Home screen, touch:
Menu > Settings > Accounts > Add account > Email

2. Enter your Email address and Password. If this is not the first email account you are setting up on your device, you can mark Send email from this account by default to set this as the default email account, and then touch Manual setup.

3. Select the type of email account you are setting up. You may choose POP3 account, IMAP account, or Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync®. In this set of instructions we will walk you through setting up a POP3 account.

4. Enter your incoming server settings. This should include your Username (always your full email address in lowercase), Password, POP3 server (the server itself is usually mail.yourdomain.com unless the CharlesWorks staff have instructed you to use otherwise), Security type (using “none” will work), Port number (the phone should have populated this based upon security settings or whether you are setting up POP or IMAP), and Delete email from server (“never” is a safe bet) setting. Then touch Next.
NOTE: If you are a CharlesWorks client, and you’re not sure of the correct values for your domain’s email specific settings, contact CharlesWorks for your correct information.

5. Your device will now attempt to connect to the incoming server with the settings you have entered. If unsuccessful, you will be prompted to Edit details; confirm your settings and try again. If the connection is successful, you will be taken to the Outgoing server settings screen. Enter your outgoing server settings. This should include your SMTP server (just like with the incoming, the server itself is usually mail.yourdomain.com unless the CharlesWorks staff have instructed you to use otherwise), Security type (for best results overall can use “none”), Port number (should be port 587), Require sign-in (always required), Username (always your entire email address in lowercase), and Password. Then touch Next.

6. Your device will attempt to connect to the outgoing server with the settings you have entered. If unsuccessful, you will be prompted to Edit details; confirm your settings and try again. If the connection is successful, you will be taken to the Account options screen. Touch Next when you have finished making your selections.

7. You will be asked to give this internet mail account a unique on-screen name. The unique account name is used to differentiate this account from other email accounts on your mobile device. Enter Your name as you would like it to be displayed on outgoing messages. Touch Done to complete the setup process.

NOTE: Unless the CharlesWorks staff have instructed you to do otherwise when setting up an email on a Galaxy S7 make sure Secure Authentication is not active.
