hello. i'm trying to set up an email account on my Samsung J516 and I'm stuck as it says POP/IMAP is not set up for this account.......I believe I have the correct password.......where should POP/IMAP be set up? On my account when I log in on my laptop or on the mobile? I need a guide for dummies to understand where, what and why. ;) Thank you.
