Re: Problems setting sending and receiving emails

"POP3" and "SMTP" are not correct server names, they are email protocols.

Your email account provider should have the correct server names & settings on their website.
If you tell us who provides your email account, perhaps someone can help.

The host 'SMTP' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the
server name correctly.
