Configure email account on Windows Phone


In the following tutorial, you can find the steps that can help you setup an email account on Windows Phone.

Before you begin, please make sure that you have a valid email account and you have collected all necessary data: username for the email account, email account password, server address POP/IMAP and SMTP. For example, if you have a domain name like ‘mydomain.com’ and an email account ‘user@mydomain.com’, the username will be ‘user@mydomain.com’ and the email server addresses will be ‘mail.mydomain.com’, for both POP/IMAP and SMTP.

1. Go to 'Settings' -> 'Accounts' -> 'Emails+Accounts' -> 'Add an account' -> 'other account(POP or IMAP)'.
