Take a few minutes out of your day to make your life easier with this user guide on how to set up email on your Samsung Blade

The Samsung Blade S5600 is only a mid-range device it's perfectly well equipped to handle your regular email. You can receive messages from your normal accounts, reply to messages, forward email, as well as compose new messages, adding attachments, if you wish to do so.

It's easy to set up, with a Wizard to guide you through the essentials for tapping in account details. You can input details for POP3 email accounts, which covers most web-based email and accounts from internet service providers.

You'll need a few extra details, alongside your email address and password (see below), though you may be able to find them on the Know Your Mobile list here. Alternatively, you can get them from your email provider - they'll usually be available on their websites.

Its quick to set up and use - and whether you're a regular email-checker or just want to keep tabs on your email account now and again, it's an extremely useful feature to have to hand.

Details you'll need...

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 their 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.
