  • Domain\ user name: If your Exchange ActiveSync server requires that you specify a domain, enter it before the backslash. Otherwise, just enter your username (the part before @emailprovider.com in your email address) after the backslash. The backslash is optional when only entering your username. The Email app enters the correct syntax for domains and usernames when communicating with the server.
  • Password: The password for your email account, which should be filled in.
  • Exchange server / IMAP server: The fully resolved domain name of your email service provider's server, for example, mail.emailprovider.com.

  • IMAP path prefix: Enter an IMAP path prefix, if required.

  • Security type: Select the security type required by your email service provider. Select the SLL (Accept all certificates) option for your security type to accept a server certificate from your SMTP server that is self-signed, out of date, or in some other way not accepted by the Email application.
  • Port: Set the Security type first to enter the typical server port number in this field automatically. Or enter a different port number if your email service provider requires it.
  • Require sign-in: Check this option to enter a username and password for your SMTP server, if your email service provider requires that you enter them to send email.
  • User name: Your username on the SMTP server (this may not be the same as your username on the POP3 or IMAP server for incoming mail). Visible only if Require sign-in is checked.
