I know there may be posts on gz covering this but they are difficult to find in a search.

I have had my Galaxy S for about six weeks and did have my email coming into it perfectly. Last night I updated the firmware to JM1 via Kies and stupidly did not back up first. In my opinion Kies does not give sufficient warning on this and I was not smart enough to think for myself about backing-up.

Because the update seems to reset everything to factory default, I have lost my ability to get email. My email account is with Xtra and my phone is on Vodafone. I have been trying restore the settings but I am not geeky enough to know what to do and can't remember how I set up it up in the first place (it was more by luck than anything else).

Email works when I am at home and the phone is connected wirelessly to my home internet. When I am at work, with no wireless and where I want to get Xtra email via Vodafone, it doesn't work.

I would be very grateful for some simple step by step instructions to get it going at work. Thanks

What ports are you using to connect? Xtra is a some anti-spam magic in place to make life difficult from outside networks.

Why not forward your Xtra email to Gmail and go with Gmail? It makes life SO MUCH simpler...and your gmail is always there no matter what phone you may login to or what ROM you're just flashed onto your phone.

Webmail to Xtra should work, too....set it up in your browser and bookmark it. Hopefully they have a mobile-friendly version? But if you're doing the POP mail download to the phone thing....well...I wouldn't. :-)

As an Xtra customer you should be able to get assistance as far as port settings etc for your pop account from xtra support. Just as long as you can understand philippine english they may be able to help.
