    My email adress ends in @post.com and I want to configure it on my android device and I already know about the server settings.

    POP3 Server: pop.mail.com
    POP3 Port: 995 (or Port 110 if you don’t use SSL)
    IMAP Server: imap.mail.com
    IMAP Port: 993 (or Port 143 if you don’t use SSL)

    But there is an error message: Username or password incorrect.

    I think it is because the domain is post.com and the servers are pop.mail.com or imap.mail.com. The username and the password are correct because I use them to log in on the website. I can´t configure my address either in the default client server of my phone and the mail.com android app.

    I tryed with a new address ending in @mail.com and it DO worked.

    How can I do to configure my post.com address? I want it because the username wasn´t available in @mail.com

    Thank you so much!

    Interesting, I see that post.com is listed on their site but the whois and DNS look very different.

    Try pop.post.com as your coming mail server.

    It appears to be a different server pool, so it might work if pop.mail.com is not working for you.

    I tryed both ports 995 and 110.
