How do I set up 123-reg mobility on my Android phone?

This article relates to 123-mail

This article will explain how to setup 123-reg mobility with your Android phone.

Please note: In order to get your mailbox and mobility features working with your smartphone, you will need to set up your mailbox as a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync mailbox.

This is so that the push content technology will work across your mailbox and smartphone.

1

Click on the Menu button and then click on Settings

2

Once in the settings menu click on Accounts Sync.

3

Then click Add Account

4

Select the Microsoft Exchange Active Sync option.

5

You will now need to fill in your Email Address and your Email address password.

Once completed click on the Next (>) button.

6

You will now need to enter your Username which is your email address.

Once completed click on the Next (>) button.

7

You will now receive an error message stating that the "Setup could not finish" this is because the phone has automatically attempted to find the server details.

Once this appears click on Edit Manually.

Next you must decide whether you would like to use the POP3 or IMAP email protocol.

POP3 is the standard protocol for receiving email from a mail server and it allows you to download all of your emails to one location.

IMAP is best if you access your email from multiple locations, clients and devices as it doesn't require downloading of your email content. We recommend using IMAP settings on Windows Live because if anything were to happen to your computer or mobile device, you would still be able to access your emails.

To find out more about the POP3 and IMAP protocols, watch the following support video.

Once you have decided, enter either:

  • pop.123-reg.co.uk
  • imap.123-reg.co.uk

Once entered click on the Next (>) button.

9

You will now see the details being verified and accepted. The next screen will show you what can be synced and give you the option to select them on or off.

Once completed click on the Next (>) button.

10

Finally you can name the email account in the box provided

Once completed click on the Done (>) button.


That's it, you are all set up and can start using 123-reg mobility email on your phone.
