2012: Changing from POP to IMAP
October 4th, 2011 | Posted by Pin

Thanks to Steve Jobs of Apple Inc., we now have even more i-devices, like the iPad, iPhone and Macbook to fill our already busy lives. Now, we can all have access to emails, even when we’re cycling in the middle of the woods of Fraser’s Hill.

But, have you ever wished that you could send an email from your iPhone and have it shown directly in your Outlook? Or, would you like to mark a message as read in your Mac’s Mail and have it automatically marked as read in your Android as well? How about fine-tuning your email tools to boost your email managing efficiency, like AMG adding HorsePower to the Mercedes-Benz?

We understand your needs and plan to come up with a guide, but since each email user is different, we think it would be better if we could spend some time with you to review each case and propose an improvement. With such advancements in email technology, the old POP3 way to access your email has become obsolete, and it has now been replaced with smarter methods where you can manage all emails in all devices while keeping everything you’ve done in sync.

This exercise may take a couple of weeks, so let’s not waste time and kick start it now!

Blackberry Email Setup Guide
April 20th, 2010 | Posted by Pin

Most of the Blackberries sold on the market come with the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS). What’s so special about it? Well, Blackberry devices, unlike other phones, are integrated with its Push Mail technology through BIS. New emails, contact numbers and calendars are pushed to your mobile phone automatically, as soon as it arrives into your mailbox. Through BIS, your emails will also be scanned from viruses.

“The BlackBerry Internet Service, or BIS, allows BlackBerry users to access the Internet and POP3/IMAP/Outlook Web Access email accounts without connecting through a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES). The service is usually provisioned through your mobile phone service provider, though Research In Motion (RIM) (BlackBerry’s developer) actually runs the service. This service uses RIM’s proprietary push technology (in contrast with SyncML-based push technologies such as Funambol) to the BlackBerry devices over cellular carriers; BIS retrieves email from mail servers via POP3 or IMAP is done via polling.”

Using BIS, you can integrate your phone with no more than 10 POP or IMAP accounts. To begin, please choose your Telco from Blackberry’s main website. For more setup guidelines, check this out.

When you’re asked, “What is your Mail Server?” enter imap.emailsrvr.com, running on port 143. Your outgoing mail server is smtp.emailsrvr.com, running on port 587. The username is your full email address.

For those Blackberry owners without a BIS plan, you can download a third party email client called Tiggitmail. This software is not free.

If you wish to learn more about the BIS plan, check this out:

Setting Up Nokia Messenger
March 17th, 2010 | Posted by Pin

Nokia email

Most Nokia phones allow you to access your mailbox on the go. You’ll find it extremely useful when you need to sneak peek into your Inbox when you’re out of the office without your notebook. In general, setting up the email function in your Nokia phone is pretty straight forward. It usually starts from the Mail Settings options.

For those with POP and IMAP support, choose IMAP.

– Incoming mail server: imap.emailsrvr.com (port 143)
– Outgoing mail server: smtp.emailsrvr.com (port 587)
– Username: your email address
– Your SMTP requires authentication.
– SMTP’s Authentication are the same as your incoming server

For those with only POP support, change imap.emailsrvr.com to pop.emailsrvr.com, and change port from 143 to 110.

Tips:

1. Uncheck ‘Leave a copy of email…’ in your email client. By doing this, your Nokia messenger will only show your new email messages which you have yet to download to your email client.

2. To verify if your password is correct, try it out using the Webmail. If you’ve lost your password, send a password reset request to us via our Contact Us form.

3. Emails sent through your Nokia phone will only appear in the Sent box of the Webmail if you’re using IMAP.

4. International roaming for 3G is possible when you’re abroad. Since Nokia Messenger only downloads the header by default, it requires a minimum bandwidth and you should not expect to pay much.

Get your Mail on the iPhone or iPad
July 18th, 2009 | Posted by Pin

If you want to retrieve your email with your iPhone, you have two options. Firstly, iPhone Mail allows you to access your email account in a way similar to email clients such as Internet Mail, Outlook or Outlook Express. Here’s how you do it:

Setup email on the iPhone 3GS & iPhone 4

On the Settings screen, tap “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”. Go to Add Account and select “Other” from the Welcome to Mail screen. Select “Add Mail Account”

Welcome to Mail screen

Welcome to Mail screen

1) Name: Any Name
2) Address: Enter your email address.
3) Password: Enter your password for your email account.
4) Description: Any Description

Click “Next” and select “IMAP”

On the Incoming Mail Server screen, press “Enter”
1) Host Name: imap.emailsrvr.com
2) User Name: Enter your full email address as your user name
3) Password: Enter the password from your email account

On the Outgoing Mail Server screen, press “Enter”
1) Host Name: smtp.emailsrvr.com
2) User Name: Enter your full email address as your user name.
3) Password: Enter the password from your email account.

Click “Next” again. Your iPhone will try to verify your settings. Do not panic if you see a “Cannot connect using SSL” warning. Choose setting up your email account WITHOUT SSL.

When everything is ready, press on Advanced and make sure you have the following settings:
1) Use SSL: Off
2) Authentication: Password
3) Server Port: 143

Attention to iPad user, please reboot your device after setup. Or else, your new account will not be found inside Mail. Hold Home and On/Off button for more than 4 seconds to reboot your device.
