Samsung Galaxy S II :: Email Server Settings Modification?
Jun 11, 2012
I can set up my account and send/receive emails with no problem using either pop or imap, the problem I have is trying to then modify the 'Server Settings' to set the 'delete from server' option under 'incoming settings'. When I select 'incomming settings', username/password, 'done', nothing happens, I'm just returned back to the original settings screen that I originally selected 'incomming settings' from. What is also suspicious is the option for 'outgoing settings' is not listed at all, when I look at documentation the option for 'outgoing settings' is there under 'server settings' but not on my phone it's not.
Using 5.02 and the email client only syncs when I update the time period or incoming server settings. I have two other accounts, one pop and one exchange, that work without issue. This imap account won't sync. If I delete and reinstall it works for a while and then the problem comes up again.
Trying to setup my email - pop3 goes through fine but, smtp comes up with 'Server does not support authentication'. All full stops etc., are in the right place, why did it set up fine on the Galaxy S and not the S2?
If I have one of my IMAP accounts from work setup on my Galaxy s2 WILL a copy of the emails be left by default on the server once "downloaded" by phone. This so I can later go to my Outlook at work and see them also.I am asking this to double check and to be sure. I might be thinking in a POP3 mindset.
I've had a Galaxy G2 for several months now and all of a sudden the outgoing email facility no longer works. If I try to reset the outgoing email settings, everything is fine and the test appears successful. But when I try to send email I find that I receive message 'Connection error'. I am currently set to send emails without signing on, the port number is 25 and the SMTP server is [URL] I have tried signing in and changing the smtp address to others suggested on other sites, i.e [URL], but setup is never completed.
Recently my phone did a software upgrade, and for some reason this removed all my email settings. I've been trying to setup my email account on it again but don't seem to be having any joy. My address is through Utility Warehouse (firstname.lastname@example.org)- so I typed that and the password in at the first setup screen. The next screen asked to select between pop3 and IMAP, which I chose pop3. I then set the incoming server to pop3.uwclub.net and the outgoing to smtp.uwclub.net- I am positive these are the settings I've used before. However after saying Processing for a long time I get a timeout message. I've tried with and without SSL and I still can't get my emails to work!
I need to set my outgoing work email (SMTP) server port number to 587 and connection security to TLS. However, I can't see an option to set either the port number nor the security to TLS. SSL security can be turned on/off, but no mention of TLS.
I have read elsewhere that setting the server name as <server name> : <port number> can be used (that is, using a colon to separate the server name from the port number), but still this does not allow for selecting TLS security.
My incoming email, IMAP, works fine, so my connection/username/password etc. should all be fine.
new user of Samsung Galaxy S2 - had problems setting up phone initially for WAP but seems to be ok - but SOMETIMES when i try to send texts it fails and i get a message 'server response error' - this happened this morning when i replied to a text - so no. is correct and no pictures were sent to me - does anyone have an idea why this is happening and how i correct it without risking messing up my APN settings?
I tried to check updates to my Phone.Settings -> About Phone -> Software Update -> Update (Check for Updates)When i do this immediately i get a pop-up notifying "Connecting to server ..." Later after few seconds im getting another pop-up saying "Connection failed"I have a Samsung account and my SocialHub works perfectly fine.Anybody facing this issue? Any idea about how to resolve this?
I use Outlook for business email and my SG2 for it while away. On return I find that the mail has been deleted from the server so is not available for Outlook. I have found no setting on the SG2 for stopping this whereas it is available on my partners HCT.
I have googled quite a bit without finding a solution. I have an MS Exchange mail account which I set to manual sync. Works fine. I have also told the SII not to sync contacts from my MS Exchange account. However, if I search for a contact in my contacts list the SII also searches on my Exchange server--which creates traffic I do not want and a lot of hits since I work for a large company. Is there a way to tell SII not search for contacts on my Exchange server?
Whenever I try to run the android update it says "Searching for server" then report, "Server connection failure". This goes running though either wireless or 3g connection. The SII works fine downloading/uploading everything/everywhere else and on any connection, it has me baffled. It has worked before as it did a couple of updates when I first bought this really great phone!
I can access the internet through my WiFi at home (I have AT&T wireless) or at AT&T hotspots (Starbucks, Sam's Club, etc.). However, when I'm somewhere that has non-AT&T WiFi (Chick-Fil-A, Panera, etc.), I can connect -- with a strong signal -- but I'm unable to access the internet. I get a message about the server not responding.
I just bought a used Verizon Galaxy S5.Im using it on T Mobile. I have a personal and work email accts.I was able to setup my personal email but My work email just keeps saying cannot connect to server.I had them both setup on my old phone and I setup all my employees work emails with no problems..
Kies has always worked well for me, until I updated my GSII to ICS and updated Kies to the latest version. Now I'm having trouble syncing the GSII with Outlook on my PC as I want.fter the last sync, I find that the contacts on the PC have all duplicated (2 of everything), and the contacts on the phone have all been removed.When I first set up Kies there were options to determine how priorities on new/changed contact records on phone and PC should be resolved. Now I can't find any settings for that. It's just the one 'sync' setting.
i just bought a samsung vibrant and after looking at videos sample test on Internet. what's the best setting for video on a samsung vibrant? can you tell me the best setup for the settings if i'm trying to record it as hd.
My S2 has behaving a bit strangely now for a while, but after updating it to ICS it seems to have gotten worse!
The settings I use daily are (amongst other ones):-
- WIFI off - bluetooth on - ringer vibrate - brightness 25%
Before ICS, when I switched the phone off and then on again, it would change the settings to the following:-
- WIFI on - bluetooth off - brightness 50%
After ICS update it now also resets the ringer to loud, not vibrate.
It seems to make the changes shortly after it boots. For example, I switch it on, put my pin in and the bluetooth is on, wifi off, ringer vibrate (as it was when it went off). However, shortly after my home screens have loaded with their icons, the BT, WIFI, brightness and ringer all change, almost as if it's loading some default settings.
I have the international version of Galaxy S2. I go into phone to display the log and I pick any of the settings, ie all calls, missed calls, etc. It displays the right information but when I exit and get back to it, it doesn't remember the settings, it goes back to ALL.
My name is ivan and i have a galaxy s2 from canada. im gonna be completley honest here. After rooting my phone, the settings icon was gone. i didnt care for awhile but after i few days, i recently came across lag and was forced to unroot and reset my phone. thinking that would do the job and bring my settings back, sadly it didnt. I factory reseted my phone but the settings icon was still not there.
-i just bought the phone, i would like to know if i need to upgrade anything, and if it is needed. what do i need to check. i am quite a mobile phone noob. i read the manual and i thought i would know how the phone works, but i have still lots of questions.
-also i want to uninstall some apps i dont need, how do i do that?
-about kies, it is used for transfer between pc and mobile right? do i really need to install it, cant i just use the pc usb - phone usb to transfer files?
-about auto-rotate from normal view to landscape view, is it possible to do this manually? with some sort of quick tap operation or something. also i switched it off, but when i use the Internet app for example, it still auto-rotates.
-about the Internet app, is it there so you can view everything immediately in mobile phone format? and using internet browser, you would get the normal format? is it possible to switch to mobile format for websites when using the webbrowser?
-about android, and android market applications, are they safe to use? have they been checked by android admins or something?
-what kind of security measures are needed for this phone, like anti-virus, anti malware, firewall?
Now that I'm getting to grip a little more with my SGS II then the next stage is to look at security. On my old phone I had a pin code lock for when the phone was turned on. The nearest I've seen to that is the encrypt device option.Has anyone any recommendations as to good practices for security on android phones, especially with the auto sync of some accounts needed for running which makes me want to lock the phone down tight should it get into undesirable hands.
i am a new mmember!i have a small problem with my SGS II i cant find the update settings!i am going in settings->informations but it don't have "check for update"...also i cant connect my phone with my pc via Samsung Kiess.
i like the screen display nice and bright so when i go into - settings - display - brightness - menu i untick the automatic brightness box and move the slider almost all the way to the right and press ok to exit - leaving the automatic brightness box unticked .but the next time i go to use my phone either to text or make or receive a call somehow the automatic brightness box has a tick in it and the screen goes into the automatic brightness settings by going dim again .whatever i do and however many times i untick the automatic brightness box it still manages to tick itself the next time i use the phone?
