How to Setup EPhost email on Windows Phone

If you only wish to synchronize email and synchronizing calendars and contact are not a concern, you can connect your Windows devices using the IMAP protocol.  

If you want to setup synchronization with email, calendars and contacts, you'll need to use the EPhost Push Synchronization service.  IF you already HAVE the EPhost Puse email (Exchange ActiveSync EAS), you'll want to follow the directions in the "Setting up EPhost Push email on your Windows Mobile Device" Knowledge base article.

Setting up a SmarterMail account in Windows Mail using IMAP

  1. If you're setting up Windows Mail for the first time, when you open the client you'll see the option to "Add your email accounts". Otherwise, simply bring up the Mail settings, click on Accounts and Add an Account.
  2. As you're setting up an IMAP account, click on the Other Account (Connect) option.
  3. Select IMAP and click Connect
  4. If you have auto-discovery set up, you can simply add in your full email address and password, then click Connect.
  5. If you don't have auto-discovery set up, click on the "Show more details" link
  6. With the details expanded, you will have the ability to add a bit more detail for the account:
    • Email address - your full email address
    • Username - your FULL email address
    • Password - your email password
    • Incoming (IMAP) email server - the URL of your mail server (e.g., mail.domain.com)
    • Port - the default port you're using. Windows Mail will automatically add in the default port for SSL and non-SSL IMAP connections. However, you can modify this if you're using an alternate port.
    • Incoming server requires SSL - check for requiring an SSL connection, uncheck if you do NOT want to use SSL.
    • Outgoing (SMTP) email server - the URL of your mail server (e.g., mail.ephost.com or mail.your_domain.com)
    • Port - the default port you're using. Windows Mail will automatically add in the default port for SSL and non-SSL SMTP connections. However, you can modify this if you're using an alternate port.
    • outgoing server requires SSL - check for requiring an SSL connection, uncheck if you do NOT want to use SSL.
    • Outgoing server requires authentication - check if you're using SMTP authentication for sending email.
    • Use the same username and password to send and receive email - check if your full email address is required for both sending and receiving email. If NOT, uncheck and add in information as needed.
  7. Click Connect

NOTE: The Important IP Addresses Knowledge base Article will have all updated PORTs and IP addresses.

NOTE: It may take a few seconds but your account should come up and start syncing your mail. Remember, IMAP is only for syncing email, NOT calendars or contacts. After everything syncs up, your Windows Mail client will begin working.

If you want to setup synchronization with email, calendars and contacts, you'll need to use the EPhost Push Synchronization service
