Switch from POP3 to IMAP

Disable your current POP3 account. Go into your account settings and disable your current POP3 account.


Add your IMAP account with the following settings:
Incoming/Outgoing server: fir.securehost.ie
Username: yourname@yourdomain.com
Password: yourpassword


Currently your old POP3 emails will reside on your current device. To access them from all devices copy the emails from your local email folders into your IMAP account. You can do this by simply dragging and dropping emails from one set of folders to the other. This will upload the emails into the IMAP account.
