Email with The Grid 2
The Grid 2 has built-in email to allow you to send and receive emails easily.
Your email account
To send emails with The Grid 2, you need a POP3 email account. You will probably have one of these from your Internet Service Provider (ISP), the company that provides your internet access. You need to locate the details of the POP3 account to enter in to The Grid 2.
If you do not have a POP3 email account, you can set up a free one online.
We recommend using Googlemail, as it is the easiest to set up. Other customers have also used BT Internet accounts successfully. It is not currently possible to use Hotmail in this way, due to their restricted settings.
