But in it can also be pop.anotherserver.com | port 465 | security type: SSL (Accept all certificates)
Requires sign-in with your username (your email) and password (provided by your email provider)

Never delete emails from server BUT ONLY IF you frequently use a computer to also check your emails!
DO NOT
use your phone as your only email device!

When you check/download your emails into your phone you are just receiving a copy of those emails.
The original emails are kept on your provider's server waiting to be deleted.
Since there is no option to delete emails from server after you download them, they will just keep piling up.
Your email account will run out of space in no time and your email service will stop working.
A computer downloads and keeps your emails only in your hard drive. You will never run out of space!
ALSO, if you lose, drop and damage, or even update your phone, you will lose your emails forever.
A computer has no such risks and you are also able to backup your emails.
