    Trying to configure SECURE POP3 email for Android
    (phone: Acer Z520; Android version 4.4.2)
    I need to be able to configure an email account using SECURE (SPA & SSL) settings.
    I cannot see how to do this ..... and as a result my attempts at configuration always fail to connect.
    Partly this is a problem in converting between "Microsoft" (Outlook) terms and "Android" terms.
    I have been able to see how to enter the POP3 server name, and the incoming port number ----> as yet I have NOT been able to get as far as the SMTP configuration.
    Using "Microsoft" terms, I need to know how to configure the following configuration items within the Android email account set-up:-
    * Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) --- selected
    * My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication --- selected
    * Use same settings as my incoming mail server --- selected
    * This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) --- selected
    * Use the following type of encrypted connection [for SMTP] = SSL
    * Outgoing server (SMTP) = 465
    Please provide a *** DETAILED *** explanation of how to configure this.
    Unless the phone can achieve SECURE email connectivity with my email service provider, then I will be unable to use it to receive emails. !!!!
    I cannot believe that this level of security has not been a common requirement already - but I can find no mention of it in online help or the user manual.
