Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I found some instructions online to set up my email by using gmail on my phone but I'm still unable to set it. When sendind an email it says it failed. Don't know what to do. Can someone please help. :) Thank you
If you have a Google Mail etc e-mail account already then take note of details
and less important
Name: = descriptive name for yourself such as 'my e-mail'
Address: = the actuall e-mail address you signed up for 'email@example.com
Password: = password you chose on sign up
Description: = my google account for example
on iphones home screen click settings icon then scroll down to
Mail, Contacts, Calendars
and if neccessary click Add Account. you are shown a screen full of e-mail account providers and if yours is there (google mail for this example) click it else click 'other' at the bottom of the screen.
Enter your details as described above in the relevant fields and click save. The phone should then do a check and retrieve the required settings from google mail and show a tick mark beside each feild to say successful you will then have your e-mail account set-up
I used yahoo mail after going online from my pc and setting up a new account it was free and very painless to set up in the phone..

Standard instructions for email inbox setup:
i have finished my corby pro email settings & i can send and recieve emails. the problem with only recieving & not able to send is the confusion between port numbers. in secure connection box three options available ' off ', ' SSL ', ' TLS '. use only SSL or TLS because the port numbers for SSL & TLS differs. just try this & you will be able to send and recieve emails.
SMTP port - 465
POP3 port - 995Enable POP in Gmail. Don't forget to click Save Changes when you're done.Configure your client to match the settings below:Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:pop.gmail.com
Unless you're using recent mode to download mail to multiple clients, make sure you've opted not to leave messages on the server. Your Gmail settings determine whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won't affect how Gmail handles your mail.
Please note that if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.
Also, if you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that encyrption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.You're now ready to use POP with your Gmail address.
