How do I Set Up POP/IMAP Email on my Samsung Galaxy Note, S3 -6 and Galaxy Tab

Accessing email through a POP3 or IMAP account lets you have greater control over how you interact with your email. Set up how frequently your mobile device syncs with the email server, how email is handled after it has been delivered to your device, and more. POP3 is the simplest to set up, but IMAP may offer more customization options.
