Vodafone email settings

Vodafone supports two types of email - IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) and POP (Post Office Protocol).

Which should I use?
We recommend the use of IMAP as this means your emails are 'in the cloud' and can be accessed by more than one device. Email is synchronised across all your devices as it's managed on the email server. POP is from a time when you would access your email from one device only i.e. your PC. POP simply downloads email to your device and then (but not always) deletes the email from the server.

Setting up email on a mobile? Use our Interactive Device Guides.

Please use these details for Clearnet or Paradise.
