Using a Mobile Phone with Your Email


You can always use Web-Based Email to send and receive email messages. But you also can view your email with an email client. To access your email on your mobile phone, add an account with the settings outlined below.

Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) lets you access email stored on a mail server from multiple computers and devices without transferring them between computers. Post Office Protocol (POP) lets you retrieve email from a remote server through your third-party email client.

Before You Start:

You need the names of your incoming and outgoing servers to set up email with a client. Web-Based Email contains this information.

  1. Log in to Web-Based Email at
  2. From the Help menu, select Email Client Settings.
  3. Make a note of your incoming and outgoing server information.
  4. Continue with the procedures outlined below to set up your email client.
