  • Hi, I have an android on Samsung phone with its own application Email, v. 4.2.81.2, I have all settings correct, the incoming server works without problems but when setting the outgoing SMTP server, the app permanently says that the username or password is incorrect or POP3/IMAP access isn't turned on (in fact it is on). What can be the problem? I'm absolutely sure, that I set up correct name and password (same as incoming), SSL, and port. Thanks.
