Hi everyone

I'm trying to set up my e-mail on my S3 and everytime I try it says cannot connect to server. I don't have any problem connecting to internet using my data so why is this happening how can I fix this? Thank you

Is it a outlook/MSexchange email?

I'm not sure it is just the e-mail app that comes with the S3

What kind of email are you trying to set, hotmail, internet provider email?

This sounds like an Internet connection issue, can you browse, if not then verify phone settings, enable Data, there is no email that comes with S3 except GMAIL and EMAIL icons, Gmail icon is intended to configure your Gmail account by entering your gmail email and password, second icon Email is there to configure other emails like Pop3, Imap, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSynch
