How do I change the username of an email account on the Galaxy S3?

My email provider (Amenworld) sold all their email and web business to Namesco.

Amenworld used name@domain as the format for the email account - i.e. identical to the format for an email address. Namesco, for their low end email users use just domain. i.e the characters after the @ sign. e.g. business.co.uk. They then direct all mail to the single account for that user. info@business.co.uk and john.smith@business.co.uk all end up in the account business.co.uk.

All well and good, until one has to change the existing john.smith@business.co.uk entries for both username and email address in the Galaxy S3 to business.co.uk and john.smith@business.co.uk respectively.

At the update IMAP screen, both email address and account are shown, but both are greyed out - they cannot be changed.

Is there any way around this - short of deleting the email from the S3 and losing all the associated addresses etc. that I have built up over its use.

You can try installing both old and new emails so you are able to preserve even the old ones. If you prefer to put all content into one account eventually, you can do so by moving onto folders.

Well, the easiest way you can try is just by simply going into your phone device. Then, from there enable sync with your account in AOL, it will then get updated to the latest changes you have made in your account using your computer.

Sending email on Galaxy S3 mini?

When I send an email off my Galaxy S3 on Hotmail and live it keeps sending the same message and is draining my battery also it is filling my sent folder with the same message

It is possible that the connection with your internet is not stable enough to send the email (unless the email is sent is sent and is still being sent). If that is the case, try to reboot your S3 mini first by turning it off and on again. If the issue persists, re-install the app. If it still happens, I suggest you try and do a Factory Reset. You will need to backup your phone before doing this because you will lose all data.

Download Samsung Kies for this: Samsung.com/ph/support/usefulsoftware/Kies/JSP

Tap the backup and restore tab and follow the steps. After you have done a backup, do the following on your phone:

NOTE: Remove SIM card and SD card before doing this

  • go to your dialer app
  • dial this: *2767*3855#
  • phone should reset itself

Once the phone has wiped itself clean, connect your phone to your computer and restore data.

Now I cannot log in on the computer how can I get help for this?

I suggest re-installing the Yahoo Mail application by going to settings>apps>Yahoo mail>uninstall . You can then go to your app store to install the said app again on your S3. Use your new password for logging in.
