Setting up email on smart phone

I have just bought a smartphone and am trying to set up my email app with my virginmedia.ocm email. However its not working despite me putting in the email address and password that works when I use the phones internetbrowser to get the emails. Instead it says authentication failed. Help what am I doing wrong? Thank you

Re: Setting up email on smart phone

Make sure the settings are thus:

imap.virginmedia.com SSL on/ticked Port 993

smtp.virginmedia.com SSL on/ticked Port 465

full email address as username & your account's password.
