IMAP on my android phone (ntlworld account)

 Recently I lost the ability to send emails and was advised to reset my account so I deleted it and this has led to issues.Using the IMAP settings on the VM page,my phone will not validate my account either incoming or outgoing, It will not even connect to the server. I have set it up for POP3 and can now receive mail, but it still will not send? Can anybody help? I have no trouble with IMAP on an android tablet but the same settings will not work on the phone :-(

Re: IMAP on my android phone (ntlworld account)

You need to clear the cache on the phone imap works on phones, without the issues around deleting emails virgin accounts have on pop3

Android phones are great for email. I recommend opening a gmail account on the phone, that makes backup and restoring data, contact app and other stuff very simple, then add you virgin mail to the gmail app and use imap setting, it will work, both email inboxes in one
