I'm having great difficulty setting up a POP email account on a new Nokia 520.

It's my wife's phone, and it should be polling a sub-account on my ISP's mail server - this is configured as accountname+username .

However, it polls the main account.

Even worse, it removes the mails from the server and I can't find any means of choosing whether or not the mail should be deleted.

I set this up all of this without any difficulty on an Android phone.

I deleted the POP account and then found that the mail tile has disappeared from the home screen.

I've now spent almost three hours on a task that I thought would take 5 minutes, so any guidance would be gratefully received.

What is your ISP? Perhaps we would be able to find the proper incoming/outgoing server settings and the account settings online if we know which ISP you have.

Many thanks for your interest. I have, in fact, managed to set this up myself, after much trial and error. The ISP is Plusnet.
