This tutorial will show you how to set up an POP3 Email account.

Step 3 – it will then ask you on what type of account you would like to have. You can either choose between POP3 and IMAP. The main difference between the two is that the POP3 protocol assumes that there is only one client connected to the mailbox.
In contrast, the IMAP protocol allows simultaneous access by multiple clients. IMAP is suitable for you if your mailbox is about to be managed by multiple users. Click on POP3.

Step 4 – You willl then need to configure your incoming server settings. Firstly, you will need to enter your username and password. You will need to ensure that these are both correct. You will then need to replace “POP3” with “mail” in the POP3 server text box and then choose next.

Step 9 – It will then check the outgoing server settings, it will produce an error if any of these settings aee incorrect.

Step 10 – When coming to the next screen, these settings are for your own preferences and can be changed later on when you set up the email. Then choose next.
