    Afternoon all.
    Im hoping you can help me. I have gone from an Iphone to Samsung but struggling to get my email account set up.
    I use a Gmail account that runs through an IMAP server (no idea how or why etc)
    When i try to set up the account it asks me for password (known) but other details such as incoming server details, outgoing server details....i seem to remember struggling with the set up before but cant remember for the life of me what i did to solve it.
    General advise or a phone call would be greatly appreciated.

    Username: your e-mail address

    IMAP server:
    Security type: SSL
    Port: 993​

    SMTP server:
    Security type: SSL
    Port: 465
    Require sign-in: yes
    - -
    IMAP protocol keeps your e-mails in the server (somewhere) and a local copy in your phone which means that you have syncronized e-mails on all your computers you use the same account.

    And let me be the first to congratulate you for the best phone move you will make ever. Once you get used to the Samsung, I bet you won't want to move back.

    From an previous S8 plus user, to a S9 plus user, welcome to the elite, and disregard any negative comments that are likely to follow... :whistle:

    As for the gmail, I just added the app, signed in, and it pulled all my previous emails over, simples.

    Map loving the freedom, the release from the Apple jail !

    Im waiting for the comments too, but, im just off to the gym, not shying away from the banter, im all up for the stick and can give it back too, just not for the next 2hrs anyway.

    Ill leave it to you to fight the Samsung corner, past threads prove youre right!

    Have SAMSUNG...will travel.
    Over and Out.

    I must admit I have thought about it a few times but with all my past investments in Apple ecosystem including AirPort Extreme and express, all my music stored on iTunes a few thousand photos stored on Apple servers and iCloud syncing across numerous devices I think the move would be rather painful.
    I can still remember the last time I made a little change and my central heating boiler went bananas.
    Believe it or not my central heating is connected to my Wi-fi and is connected to a server in Denmark which monitors the weather forecasts and programs the boiler automatically- changing my router password lost the connection with dire consequences.
    I am now dreading the Russians hacking in and cooking/freezing us to death - haha

    Looks like Apple have sucked you in. Like many that have fallen into the Apple pit of doom.
    Luckily I managed to break free early on and as current S8 user and awaiting the S10 (probably about 10 months to go)(just assuming) id never go back to apple. The apple kit is nice but their system ties you down and makes you buy new products when your current ones slow up (thanks to apple) and it's to expensive for you to change to android.
    If samsung falls over today I can go buy a Sony or another android brand and all is right again.

    Hi Dan,
    • Open your email application.
    • Open the menu from left (or right) top corner where are three lines (or dots).
    • Open the settings (pinion symbol up right, or just "settings")
    • Accounts (possibly manage accounts)
    • Select your email - should now see account settings
    • Select "signature" which should open "signature editor"
    • Edit your signature with tools (font, bold, italic etc) at the bottom (or top) of screen.
    • Import your picture using image import tool upload_2018-4-24_19-44-16.png (similar to this forums editing tools).
    Hope this helps...

    Thanks very much pal.

    If i can help you with any drainage or waste disposal advice i will (not so useful i know as tech but there if you need me)

    You're welcome! Why do say yours is "not so useful"? I would say you are working in area which is normally well hidden when but when there is a problem - it's a PROBLEM.
    Actually last summer I had to enter into our area. At my summer cottage there is a bacterial decomposition system which takes care of all the s***** stuff and as a result I get just purified water and small amounts enriched soil. That process is still a bit mystery how it makes "things" to disappear but definitely interesting piece of technology. And it has been working faultless already 10 years - except a hiccup last summer. Which turned out to be just a pump in need to be cleaned.

    MMI...sorry for the late reply.
    Drainage and especially the area of the industry im in is actually always interesting. We specialise in no-dig robotic drain repairs and it really is brilliant what we can do these days.
    If you ever need advice than ill certainly be able to help.

    These forums are brilliant!

    Thanks again.

    I had to actually google this out of pure interest and wow, I had no idea this was even possible.
    From my brief understanding, you can sent that little thing into a pipe that's either blocked or more impressively cracked, and it can carry out a repair in situ. Why if this technology is now available, are we seeing so much costly work being carried out by councils up and down the country? Surely if that robot can repair smaller diameter pipes on houses, there's a bigger version that can do the same on the mains that run under the roads?
    Sorry for my laymen questions, but things like this genuinely interest me and I spend hours on Youtube watching how machines work.

    I often wonder with the state of our roads, why there isn't a more efficient machine that can be operated by a couple of men, that removes things like potholes, preps the surface, drops in a more robust repair and rollers it all in one smooth efficient operation, and seeing things like that robot carrying out the repairs makes me question why the UK is grinding to a stop in many places because of constant repairs to the roads, and what runs under them.
