How to setup push mail for samsung monte phone on gmail


I'm not sure if this is of any help
to anyone but these are the steps
I used to set up email on my
Monte. I'm using an old hotmail
account that didn't support IMAP
or SMTP properly.
1.Set Up a GMail account eg.
someone@gmail.com
2.Set GMail to allow IMAP via the
settings link the the top right
hand corner. (under Forwarding
and POP/IMAP)
3.Under accounts and import set
up the send mail as to send mail as
someone@hotmail.co.uk. Set this
to default send adress
4.In the same tab under check
mail using pop3 set up the pop3 to
recieve from someone@
hotmail.co.uk
5.Under Email Accounts on the
Monte set up email with the
following charecteristics:
Account Name: Hotmail
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 465
Secure Connection: SSL
Incoming Server Type: IMAP4
IMAP4 Server: imap.gmail.com
IMAP Port: 993
APOP login: greyed out
Secure Connection: SSL
Download Limit: 500
IMAP4 incoming email: New
Retrieving option: Whole Message
Keep on server: checked
My email adress: someone@
hotmail.co.uk (This is the adress
the phone puts in the from line of
an email)
Username: someone@gmail.com
Password: gmail password
Pop before smtp: greyed out
SMTP auth: checked
Same as POP3/IMAP4: checked
Username: greyed out
Passowrd: greyed out
This should allow you to recieve
new messages from the time you
set up the gmail account on your
phone and to send emails with all
the appearences of coming from
your hotmail account while
actually coming from google's
smtp server. Really do check that
the GMail is set up properly, make
sure it recieves emails adressed
to your hotmail and that it sends
in your hotmail account's name.

How to set up your hotmail account on samsung jet. i am on o2. it keeps telling me that i need an incoming server type (POP3 or IMAP4) an incoming server & outgoing server(SMTP) i assume that these are...


I have the following (and complete) list of settings on my Jet for my hotmail account and it is receiving and sending emails correctly. (After seeing 6 posts and none with a full solution, something needs to be done .. RAGE!!)
Account name - "random name" SMTP sever - smtp.live.com SMTP port - 25 Secure Connection - TLS Incoming Server Type - POP3 POP3 Server - pop3.live.com POP3 port - 995 APOP login - unchecked Secure connection - SSL Download limit - 50 IMAP4 incoming email - New (faded out tho) Retrieving option - Subject only Keep on server - checked My address - me@hotmail.com User name - me@hotmail.com Password - **my hotmail acc password** POP before SMTP - unchecked SMTP auth. - checked Same as POP3/IMAP4 - unchecked User name - me@hotmail.com Password - **my hotmail acc password**
Some tech info to help problem solve. POP3 is the technology involved with receiving email, SMTP is involved with sending. (Lots of people saying they could receive but not send, but their SMTP settings weren't correct)

How to manage two different email ids in microsoft outlook?


Considerations Before Accessing Multiple Accounts

Before using Outlook to access more than one email account there are some caveats to this type of access.

• All email will be delivered to one inbox unless another Outlook Data File is created for the account and a rule created to move the message to the data file. If storing all in email in one data file is acceptable then a rule can be created to move the email to a folder to keep accounts separate.

• When creating or replying to an email you need to select which account the email should be sent from. This is accomplished by selecting Accounts in the mail compose windows and selecting the account to use.

Steps for Setting Up an Additional Email Account:

1. Tools
2. Email Accounts
3. Select Add a new email account click Next
4. Select POP3
5. Fill in Your Name
6. Fill in Email address for account
7. Enter User Name for account
8. Enter Password for account - check Remember password if you don’t want to login each time you send and receive email.
9. Enter Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – Information provided by ISP
10. Enter Outgoing Mail Service (SMTP) – Information provided by ISP

If this is all the information the ISP requires then click Test Account Settings to determine if everything is setup correctly. If additional information is required follow the steps below. If Outlook can perform a test send/receive with no errors then you are finished! Click Next and then Finished.

If the test fails, check your settings to make sure everything is entered correctly. Pay close attention to the username and password fields as this is usually where the problem occurs.

Additional Information

If the ISP requires outgoing authentication follow these steps:

1. Click on More Settings
2. Click on Outgoing Server tab
3. Check the box next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication
4. Make sure the Use same settings as my incoming settings is selected
5. If this is all of the required information click OK and then Test Account Settings

If the ISP requires that Server Port number needs to be changed:

1. Click on More Settings
2. Click Advanced Tab
3. Change the Incoming or Outgoing Port Number to the number provided by ISP
4. Click on OK and then Test Account Settings

Mozilla Thunderbird setup


    Google Gmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com
    The Gmail SMTP server requires authentication (use the same settings as for the incoming mail server)
    The Google Gmail SMTP Server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) on port 465.
    GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
      Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995)Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
