NOT APPLICABLEO

  2. BT Mail update and N8

    Can I just verify that you followed the same steps as me?



    What I did was:

    create a new mailbox and select "other" from the list.

    Then put in the "dummy" email address and password

    This seems to allow access to the IMAP/POP choices and allows you to enter the mail.btinternet.com server addresses etc.

    Once you have checked that all the settings are right (as shown on the BT website), you then change the email (and password) back to the correct ones BEFORE leaving the settings screen.



    This worked for me

    Outlook - Freeserve mail setup | Email settings

    What Are the Gmail SMTP Server Settings?
    Gmail SMTP
    Gmail POP3 Settings



    • Gmail POP port: 995
    • Gmail POP TLS/SSL required: yes
    - I just did a couple of general internet searches for you.

    I'm not sure that you can transfer emails from one server to another unless you have some offer to do that.

    Consider using an email client such as Thunderbird, which can receive and store emails on your PC. I have emails going back many years.

    (Of course, also back up your PC!)
