    As you can see in my other threads, happy to have a Windows phone, but disappointed with certain aspects of this flagship, especially the constant overheating. Two days ago, it was running batteries out in minutes, and shutting down without use - it had the anniversary update. Decided to reset the system which reinstalled and corrected the new problems (overheating still an issue) However, it is now impossible to install my non outlook email accounts. I have tried the auto and manual approach. The initially install, but are constantly showing errors, and while I can receive mail, I can not send. I have tried every variation of user name, port setting, imap and pop, but all the same. Since I have no problems with my Win 10 pc I am assuming it is specific to the phone.

    I am getting desparate. Please help.

    i am in Switzerland and the provider is Swisscom. I have tried both pop and imap, with and without SSL. At this point would be happy for any to work properly.

    If you can't send emails, you should look at the SMTP settings, not IMAP/POP which are for receiving emails. Have you checked that your SMTP settings are correct?

    I use outlook and onedrive. the syncing isn't effected, but the email issue is a real problem.

    I now need to add, the shut downs have resumed. I am not resetting for the 3rd. time. Let's see if that makes any difference. After this it goes back for the second time...that is also a challenge.
