Send and receive email from your regular email accounts at the touch of a finger with the Samsung Tocco Lite S5230 - we show you how

The Samsung Tocco LIte offers an affordable taster of touchscreen technology, incorporating Samsung's TouchWiz touch-operated user interface and a bunch of snazzy features, including mobile widgets.

As well as using smooth tap and swipe touch control to operate the phones features, Samsung has included in its range of messaging options full email functionality.

You can send, receive and forward emails from your normal email accounts with just a few finger taps. You can also view standard files - such as Word documents, PDFs and Excel files - sent as attachments, and send attachments yourself.

The Samsung Tocco Lite's email set up is easy to follow, with a wizard to help you through the set up procedure. The phone can be set up for  regular web-based or internet service provider POP3 or IMAP4 email accounts. Multiple email accounts can be set up and used on the phone.

Once you've set up your email account(s), you can adjust settings to manage your email, such as for frequency of downloading mail, adding signatures and so on – similar to how you would with desktop-based email.

The basics
Initially, when setting up the account, you will need standard details, such as your email account address, username and password. You will also need a couple of additional details to get your account up and running: your POP3 or IMAP4 incoming server address, and SMTP outgoing server address. If you don't have these to hand, you should be able to find them via your email provider's website and mobile network.

Alternatively, you can find details for popular services on Know Your Mobile by clicking on the links below.

Users who wish to use their corporate email server may have to get POP3 details from their IT department.

Details you'll need 
to know
You will need some information from your email provider in order to begin the set up process:
    •    Email address - Your full email address
    •    Password - Your usual email password
    •    Incoming (POP3) server - If it's not in our table of server settings, your email provider will be able to supply this, and you'll usually find POP3 details on their website
    •    Outgoing (SMTP) server - This will depend on which mobile phone network you use. See our table of server settings for details.

(Note: your email provider's POP3 settings will also contain details of the Outgoing (SMTP) server. You don’t need this to receive email on your phone.)
