If you have ever had to configure an email account after reinstalling or when something goes wrong , do you know your settings to streamline the process.
I hate to say this – but most people do not.
Email settings from providers can and do change sometimes.
So what do you need to know ?
- Your email password
- Incoming mail server
- Outgoing mail server
- IMAP or POP account
- Is it SSL
- Incoming Port
- Outgoing Port
Just to name a few , so when you have set it up , take a photo of your settings with your smartphone and for your smartphone / tablets email settings , take a screenshot.
Then if your email stops working or you have to reload your account on your current device or on a new device then you will be prepared.
Settings can be found on most major ISP websites.
