Step 2. Click on "New" under the Email Accounts screen.

Step 4. Choose "POP3", and click Next.

Step 5. Choose POP3:

Step 6. Fill in the form as shown below, using your email information:

Make sure you choose POP3 as the Account Type:

In the Your Name box, type your full name, like 'Bob Jones'
In the Email Address box, type your full email address.

Email Address: you@yourdomain.com
User name: you@yourdomain.com
Password: **********
Incoming (POP3) Server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing (SMTP) Server: mail.yourdomain.com

Do NOT use SPA, SSL, or any sort of encryption:
Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)?: Unchecked

Step 7. Click the "More Settings" button, to set the server configuration. 

On the "Outgoing Server" tab, check to see that the fields are configured as shown below.

Step 8. Click the "Advanced" tab, and ensure that the Incoming and outgoing port numbers are set as shown below, and that the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" box is left unchecked.

If this box is checked, then your server inbox will fill up over time, and you will stop receiving mail when you exceed your server inbox capacity limit of 50MB.  Click OK when done.

Incoming server port (POP3): 110
Outgoing Server port (SMTP): 587
Leave a copy of messages on the server: Unchecked

Step 9. Once back to the "Add Account" screen, click the "Test Account Settings" button, to verify your setup is complete, and then click Next.

Your setup is complete.

If you are setting up a mobile phone, use the same settings as shown above, and make sure you configure it so the messages you delete from the phone are also deleted from the server.

You will need to manually configure the mail account info on your phone, as the automatic setup wizards on most mobile phones will not work.
