I can send email from my Samsung Galaxy 5 smartphone, but I can't receive it!

I can send email from my Samsung Galaxy 5 smartphone, but I can't receive it!

I can send email from my Samsung Galaxy 5 smartphone, but I can't receive it. My desktop computer is acting fine. I tried to change my phones email port (in settings), but got the following message … “Unable to set up account.  Cannot safely connect to server”.  What needs to be done to resolve this issue???

Try deleting the account from the phone, then re-create it from scratch.  I don't have an Android device, but I'm assuming it will auto-configure it for you.
