Choosing the account type: POP3 or IMAP

Now choose between a POP3 or IMAP account.

IMAP
Using IMAP saves your E-Mails on the server. Each time you read an E-Mail, a copy is downloaded from the server.
POP3
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.

IMAP

Enter the full E-Mail address in «User Name» and the corresponding password in the field below.

Enter imap.mail.hostpoint.ch as IMAP server.

POP3

Enter the full E-Mail address in «User Name» and the corresponding password in the field below.

Enter pop.mail.hostpoint.ch as POP3 server.

Outgoing mail server

Enter asmtp.mail.hostpoint.ch as SMTP server.

Enter the full E-Mail address in «User Name» and the corresponding password in the field below.

This is mandatory, otherwise SMTP authentication will not work and you will not be able to send E-Mails.

Finish

Once you have filled in the correct information for all fields, you can check the settings by clicking «Continue». Then click on «Save» to finish setting up the E-Mail address.

Encryption

Open the account you just created. Select «SMTP» and then «Advanced».

Go to «Advanced» and check the encryption settings for the incoming mail server:

Account- and connection typePort
IMAP with SSL 993
IMAP without SSL / with TLS 143
POP3 with SSL 995
POP3 without SSL / with TLS 110
SMTP with SSL 465
SMTP without SSL / with TLS 587

Go to «SMTP» and check the encryption settings for the outgoing mail server:

Account- and connection typePort
SMTP with SSL 465
SMTP without SSL / with TLS 587
