Here are detailed instructions on how to setup email on an LT30 (but it will match most Windows Mobile devices) using a standard POP server.
Note: All of the credentials shown below are bogus, if you really are using an account on the iGage server you need to use the REAL credentials, not the bogus ones shown in the pictures!
For this demo, here are the email credentials and settings from the administrator:
User Name: firstname.lastname@example.org
SMTP Server: igage.igage.com (port 587)
POP Server: igage.igage.com (port 110)
Outgoing Server Requires SMTP Authentication
So on the LT30, start messaging:
Click on ‘Setup E-mail’ and enter the email address and password:
Click on ‘Next’:
Uncheck ‘Try to get …’, then click Next:
Choose ‘Internet e-mail’ then click ‘Next’:
Enter a reasonable name and account, then click Next:
Enter the incoming mail server (with port number after ‘:’ as shown) and choose POP3 for the account type, then click on Next:
Enter your full User name (with the @ and domain) and Password, then click on Next:
Enter the correct SMTP server (with optional port number after ‘:’), check the ‘Outgoing server …’ checkbox as required for your server, then click ‘Advanced Server Settings’
I recommend un-checking both the ‘SSL’ checkboxes, then click ‘Done’, then click ‘Next’:
If I am out surveying, and perhaps not connected to the internet, I don’t want to get a bunch of error messages about email. So I set the ‘Automatic Send/Recieve’ to ‘Manually’. Click ‘Finish’
Then click ‘Yes’ to check our settings:
I had already sent myself email congradulating myself on setting up the email account, so it shows up in my inbox.
If I click on it, the full message will be shown:
The real purpose here is to send a Carlson SurvCE .CRD file back to the office, so I can click on Menu: New:
And then from the send screen:
I can enter a destination email, subject and click on “Menu: Insert: File” (shown above) and browse to files in ‘My Documents’.
