Assuming that the phone is not setup, from the setup menu select setup email:

  • Select method to connect to the internet

  • enter in the full e-mail address
  • Select POP/IMAP
  • Check that the settings of the email are correct; remember that the user name is normally the full email address.
  • Scroll down to in coming email server, enter the text box, in Quaffee's case it is, select ok
  • Incoming mail select SSL for security or None (for Quaffee), this will select the port automatically
  • Then set the outgoing email server as per the settings the cell phone service provider, these are what I found:
    • For Vodacom 3G, outgoing server is
    • For MTN 3G, the outgoing server is
    • For Cell C the outgoing server is
  • Set the outgoing mail security to None

Send and receive and email. The email is now setup
