Trouble adding non-gmail email account
I am having trouble adding my personal email account. I go through all the steps, but then I get the "Warning: cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. Your server is not responding".
The "manual" and I use that term loosely, states that if you get that error, you need to verify all the ettings wih your mail provider, including settings for the incoming server and to access their outgoing server from other networks. Not being a computer geek, I have nooo idea what that means or how to do it. I have tried changing all the possible options and I keep getting the same error. Can anybody help me.
