Hello. I can assist you with your question.

 

Who is your email provider. I do see a google link up there, but I don't want to assume.

 

Once I know that, I can tell you what you have to do.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
My ISP is virginmedia.com previously known as ntlworld.com
Expert:  replied 3 years ago.

Assuming you already have POP access configured in your ntlworld.com account, go to Evolution and do the following.

 

Edit>Preferences>Mail Accounts>Add

 

If you still have the ntlworld.com address, then you would use these settings for the account:

Type of information

Settings to enter

 

 

Sending mail (SMTP)

 

SMTP server name

smtp.ntlworld.com

SMTP SSL

Enabled

SMTP port

465

SMTP authentication*

Enabled (or 'Password' on Macs)

SMTP username

Full e-mail address, e.g., richard.branson@ntlworld.com

 

 

Receiving mail (POP3)

 

POP3 server name

pop3.ntlworld.com

POP3 SSL

Enabled

POP3 port

995

POP3 authentication

Enabled (or 'Password' on Macs)

POP3 username

Full e-mail address, e.g., richard.branson@ntlworld.com

POP3 SPA (Secure Password XXXXX)

Disabled

 

In Evolution, the port number is XXXXX with the server, so in this example, the SMTP and POP3 servers would be

smtp.ntlworld.com:465

pop3.ntlworld.com:995

respectively.
