I am running windows 8 on a Lenovo thinkpad 2 tablet. I've tried to add my homestead email account but windows 8 mail does not support pop3. Says to try imap or exchange activesync (eas). How do I get my homestead email to use one of these protocols ?

Hello,

You can use IMAP for Homesteadmail. All the settings are the same, except for the incoming server port should use 143.

Thanks

Outgoing server on IMAP and POP will be 587. You also need to use the Outgoing server requires authentication.

Thanks
