POP3 Settings

I've just bought a Redmi Note 9 Pro phone with Gmail app and want to set up my Virgin email as a POP3 account, so that emails deleted on my phone will not delete from my PC, which is set up as IMAP.

I've checked the settings on Virgin website but I keep getting a message that it can't connect to the server.

It connects fine as an IMAP account.

I've previously used Samsung phones for a number of years and never had an issue with them.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Re: POP3 Settings

Yes, but not by selecting my deice - it's not listed - but by setting up manually.

I just found a way round it this afternoon by using a different email app (Outlook) and that set up as POP3 no problem.

So must be something to do with the pre-installed app rather than the phone.
