New HTC Desire - help setting up e-mail account

bpc123, Sep 18, 6:52am
I've recently upgraded from my old cellphone to a new HTC Desire - a bold move for a technophobe!

I'd like to be able to use the phone to check my xtra e-mails - am I able to this? What would be the settings I need to input into the phone so that this is my default mail.

I'm on vodafone if that makes a difference. After spending most of the day trying to search online for this, I'm not making any progress.

Thanks in advance.

IIRC Xtra is useless and doesn't support IMAP so you'll have to set up as a POP3 account.

I don't have Sense (which changes the Email app) on my phone but on standard Android its as easy as opening the Email app, chucking in your address and changing a few settings (as per

Does it not have an option where you can download email setting onto the phone?

I am sure the HTC TYTN does this so yours should do it too?

Of course you could always RTFM lol
