Topic # 144039 5-May-2014 17:04

Hello,
A mate has asked me to help him setup his mail settings on his new Windows 8.1 laptop which I am having difficulty doing in the default Mail app.
With Vodafone obviously but I have tried doing it via the mail app & imap, tried through Outlook.com (which he already has an account) adding a pop3 account. No luck.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?
Thank you in advance.

Have you looked at the help section on the Vodafone NZ site and Vodafone NZ community searched ' Email settings '

Everything is already covered you need to know

keep default 110 and 25.

110 is POP... 143 is IMAP...

Remember:

 

  • Outlook.com uses its own protocol, you don't need to use POP/IMAP
  • Outlook.com should automatically be configured if the login to the Windows 8.1 is that account
  • Vodafone mail can be only accessed from within the Vodafone network (unless you use secure login - does VF support this?)

You can access Vodafone emails from webmail or configuring a POP/IMAP service in a client with appropriate SMTP server.

Assuming he has a Vodafone email given he has tried Pop3 etc he should follow my post. If its an outlook.com mail service you need to login to the mail app with it or use it with Windows.

Can you login to the my account area with that password. I think you got the password wrong. You are on a Vodafone connection at present?
