How To Configure Samsung Star(S5233)/Star 3G (S5603) For POP3 Email Settings

Samsung Star Email POP3 Settings

Here is a quick tutorial of configuring Samsung Star S5233 / Star 3G S5603 & S5600 Preston /Star Wi Fi for setting up the email client inside the phone with its POP3 Settings for Gmail.

NOTE : VERY FIRST ENABLE  POP3 FROM YOUR GMAIL  ACCOUNT SETTINGS. LOG IN TO YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNT > ON TOP RIGHT CLICK ON SETTINGS >THEN CLICK FORWARDING & POP3 > THEN ENABLE POP3 FOR ALL MAIL OR YOU CAN SELECT OTHER OPTION. BUT AT LEAST POP3 MUST BE ENABLED. THEN SAVE CHANGES.

POP3 Gmail Settings For Samsung Star Cellphones:

Go To > Menu > Messages

Click Settings > Email

Then Touch >Email Setup Wizard

Notice will ocuur Touch > OK

Give name to your account E.g Gmail

Enter your email id : yourname@gmail.com , Then Enter Password for your account.

Incoming Server type : POP3

Incoming Server : pop.gmail.com

Outgoing Server SMTP : smtp.gmail.com

Secured Connection : Off

Then touch OK & it will display your POP3email account configured successfully. Now press back button and tap on Email Accounts, then touch the email account you have just created. There some more option than above you just have to edit that.

Secured Connection: Off

POP3 Port: 995

SMTP Port : 587

Now, Tick The option APOP Login.

Download Limit: 500

Secured connection: SSL (Choose SSL for second option only & not for first option.)

Retrieving Option: Choose Subject only

Keep On Server: Tick

My Address: yourname @gmail.com

Username /Password : same as you entered above

POP before SMTP : Dont Tick

SMTP Auth: Tick

Same as POP3/IMAP4 : Tick

And Finally Save All Settings.

That’s it !!!, Now you can retrieve your message from your mail box & Click on Download to download all messages.

But , Do you want your Samsung star phone to automatically download your messages ? Here is a small option they have given for that.

Go To Message > Settings > Email > Receiving Options

Download Limit: 300KB

Auto polling: Home Network Only

Following option is time after when email is downloaded automatically.

Polling Frequency: 30 Minutes (you can choose higher if you want)

Send read report: Tick

And again your emails will be automatically recovered from server at every 30 minutes. And you’ll get notified near your message notifier on your home screen if there is any unread emails.

You can also optionally block email id’s or subject that you don’t wish to receive on your Samsung Star.

Let me know if you come across some problems. I am also trying to setup with IMAP functionality & will inform with new post. till then enjoy your emails on your Samsung Star, Star wi fi,Star 3G/ Preston 5600

  42. hi i have a samsung monte s5620 what are the settings for a aol account and will it be free if connect through wifi ?

  43. Thanks a lot. your direction is clear. Just to share my experience, i have stuck with yahoo id, since maybe its only work for yahoo plus. but you can trick it with forwarding your yahoo to gmail account (you can find it on yahoo email setting option > more option > pop up and forwarding > forward your yahoo mail to gmail address). You have to creat gmail adress for that. it work for me. good luck!

  44. These steps just doesn’t work for me on samsung f480. I have bsnl connection, do one have to enable anything from bsnl side?

  54. Hey…buddy….
    i have samsung monte….have u been using for quite some time now…..until yesterday my wi-fi was working properly…..
    and since today afternoon…i have been getting dns failed error…i m not able to open any pages….
    Pls help….!

  55. hi,,,
    I use samsung star GT-S5233w,,i can connect with the wifi,but a can’t browse,,
    Do you have some manual setting for wifi,??
    thanks,

  56. Tried this with Hotmail (found settings on the internet), but it won’t work in any way. It doesn’t even mather which port, ssl/tsl on or off, etc…

        1. I Googled a lot, and I’ve tried at least 10 kinds of POP3+SMTP and 10 of IMAP4+SMTP settings, none of them worked. Yes, I am sure I enabled POP and IMAP in GMail.

          I am sure that my connection is good, because I can use all the other internet based things, like the internet browser and GMail’s J2ME/Java app. But I want my phone to alert/vibrate when I got an e-mail…

          Even when I Google Hotmail settings it doesn’t work.

          Another thing I’m sure about is that GMail and Hotmail are configured well. I can use both in computer software, like Outlook and Firebird.

      1. What I forgot to put in my last comment:
        Each time I’m trying something from the internet, my Star gives another message: sometimes about DNS or the connection, other times about ‘unanswered’ server things…

  57. i keep getting the error ‘connection failed’… i have enabled pop3 in gmail settings… my gprs is active… pls help…

  58. I am having exactly the same challenge with the Samsung Corby TXT GT-B3210. Can this work for that too? Please help.
    Thanks a lot.

  64. Hey,

    Could you tell me a method of how to browse internet on my new GT-S5620 phone using only Wi-Fi. I do not have a data plan so I will rack up extra costs if my internet connects to my cell phone provider. I want to only access local wifi hot spots. So can I permanently block non Wi-Fi browsing?

      1. Hi Amol,

        Thanks for the reply. I already set the same port for pop3 as mentioned in the article but still it is giving the same error.

        Kindly suggest.

        Regards,
        Tanmoy

  94. I tried using the IMAP settings from gmail itself and kept getting the “login failed” or “connection failed” error messages. Once I used the POP3 settings given in this post, it worked first time! Many thanks!!

  95. For those that have set up GMail and are happily downloading mails but can’t send, try changing the SMTP Port to 465 and click on Use SSL.

    Hope it helps. Otherwise, instructions above are perfect, thanks a million guys!

  104. Hello I wonder if you can help. I have set up my Samsung jet to use wifi and that is fine for the internet.

    However when I use the email the red G symbol lights up, so that means I am having to pay to get my emails – I think?

    I just wanted to get my emails via the wifi. I am guessing it is something in the settings but I am lost!
    If you can help me I would be truly grateful.
    Wishing you a merry Christmas

    1. Dear Friends,

      Hope most of you are facing problems in sending & recieving gmails from your samsung B7722 mobile phone.

      I was also very dispointed to not using my gmail account on the phone even after several advices/suggestions available on the net.

      FINALLY, AFTER THREE DAYS OF R&D IN THE SUGGESTIONS, I FOUND THE CORRECT SETTINGS. Please follow the following steps. You will definately get your mobile on, if no please write me on “on.dksurvey@gmail.com”. The settings are:

      NOTE : VERY FIRST ENABLE POP3 FROM YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNT SETTINGS (thru internet browser). LOG IN TO YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNT > ON TOP RIGHT CLICK ON SETTINGS >THEN CLICK FORWARDING & POP3 > THEN ENABLE POP3 FOR ALL MAIL OR YOU CAN SELECT OTHER OPTION. BUT AT LEAST POP3 MUST BE ENABLED. THEN SAVE CHANGES.

      POP3 Gmail Settings For Samsung B7722 / might be other samsung Cellphones also:

      Go To > Menu (can be differ model to model basis but basic settings might be same for all samsung models > Messages

      Click Settings > Email

      Then Touch >Email Account / Email Setup Wizard

      Then Touch > Add or Creat Account

      Give name to your account name E.g Gmail or your Name or whatever you want

      please note next menu orientation might be differ depending on model type, but you will find it)

      SMTP / Outgoing Server : smtp.gmail.com

      SMTP Port : 465

      Secure Connection : SSL

      Incoming Server type : POP3

      POP3 / Incoming Server : pop.gmail.com

      POP3 Port: 995

      APOP Login : Tick

      Secure Connection : SSL

      Download Limit: 500

      Retrieving Option: Choose Subject only (I have not tried for other option, you may try)

      Keep On Server: Tick

      My Email Address: type your gmail (email address)

      Username /Password : your gmail ID / Password

      POP before SMTP : Dont Tick

      SMTP Auth: Tick

      Same as POP3/IMAP4 : Tick

      And Finally SAVE All Settings.

      That’s it !!!, Now you can SEND & RECIEVE YOUR gmail messages on your samsung phones.

      All the best!

    1. Hello Sandeep,

      Try rei-installing the app, and before you do that, clean your memory card with the help of PC, you can take backup of you data first.

      This thing worked for me long ago, I ca not try now, as I am not getting any error.

      Also check if your mobile’s date and time are accurate, sometimes google mail does not work if those settings are invalid.
