Samsung S9 galaxy. I have been using the default email app for several years to send/receive with email address on Centurylink.net.
However, a few days ago it was not receiving emails and a Samsung support person told me to "Delete Data" and I would just need to re-login to email on my phone. However, since then when I tap email icon it says "Set up Email" and offers 6 icons.
I have since worked with at support at both Samsung and Centurylink.net to try to get it set up. Each has me check and try a few things and then says I need to contact the other one - several rounds of this.
I am able to use my email address and password to access my email on centurylink.net with Firefox, so I know the address and password are correct. In fact I paste them in to be sure I am using the same for web site and on my phone.
I also have MS Outlook working with that email address on my desktop PC.
Incoming Server: POP: pop.centurylink.net Port 995, Security: SSL
Outgoing Server: SMTP: smtp.centurylink.net, Port 587, Security TLS
The error message I get in Samsung email is as follows:
"Couldn't verify account The username or password is incorrect or POP3/IMAP access isn't tuned on for this account. Check your email account settings on the web, then try again."
Centurylink says there are no settings that need to be turned on on their web site.
