Depending on the origin of the account you may have to enter it manually.


For example if it was/is a former worldnet account you neeed to change the incoming address to port 995 SSL and the outgoing to port 465.  SSL


There is a more complete list as an addition to the tutorial page posted above under advanced settings. Hope that helps

The best way and also very fun way to get your email on your Samsung Captivate is by downloading the application for your Android device at There you will be able to have the same functionality you would if it was added to your email accounts.

Thank you.
