Email Settings for the Samsung Tocco Lite GT-S5230

HI

I have searched the ‘Community Blog’ and am still confused as to how to set up email on my Samsung Tocco Lit GT-S5230.

I understand the setting need to be changed, but how and to what.

  1. I tap menu
  2. I tap Messages
  3. I tap Email inbox. (it says welcome to the Email setup wizard).
  4. I tap OK
  5. I get a list of names (none of which is Giffgaff)

 

What do I do, and if other settings need changed. How, where and to what?

I’ve tried the link to ‘know your mobile’ and have got no further

Please help.

i have that phone as spare one. You need an external provider email to set it up. Do you have an account with hotmail or someone?

giffgaff do not provide email address if thats what you are looking for ?

 

you need to use the settings for your email address provding that it can be access via pop3/imap

These are my own personal opinions and do not necessarily reflect that of Giffgaff and their employees

make sure when you have put all your details into the wizard that you press messages settings email emailprofiles and that you link it to connect to gg once you have inputted it all otherwise it will not connect also. a tip as sometimes i changed my sim around and it always lost connection to it.

I think you need to get the actual settings and account stuff from the email provider before you can set this up. That's why I never set it up before.
Please Kudo me if I helped! :smileyhappy: Thanks
