Choosing the account type: POP3 or IMAP 

Now choose between a POP3 or IMAP account. 

Using IMAP saves your e-mails on the server. Each time you read an e-mail, a copy is downloaded from the server. 

Using POP3 downloads and saves your e-mails to your smartphone. The messages are then deleted from the server. This way, you can also read your e-mails offline at any time, for example if you are on the train. 

If you are not certain choose IMAP.

For Incoming server, enter imap.mail.hostpoint.ch for IMAP or pop.mail.hostpoint.ch for POP3.
Enter asmtp.mail.hostpoint.ch for the Outgoing mail server.
