Whenever you are asked for a username that will most certainly be your email
When choosing from several account types like Exchange IMAP or POP3 you should probably go with POP3

Incoming servers are usually pop. or pop3. or mail.yourserver.com
The incoming server ports are 110 for no security or 995 for SSL security (accept all certificates if available)
When using SSL your incoming server can also be pop. or pop3. or mail.anotherserver.com

The outgoing servers are usually smtp. or mail.yourserver.com
The ports are 25 for no security, 587 for no security or TLS, or 465 for SSL security (accept all certificates)
When using SSL your outgoing server can also be smtp. or mail.anotherserver.com
The outgoing servers usually require authentication using your username (your email again) and password

REMEMBER: You should only use the settings provided by your hosting or email provider.

Never delete emails from server BUT ONLY IF you frequently use a computer to also check your emails!
DO NOT
use your phone as your only email device!

When you check/download your emails into your phone you are just receiving a copy of those emails.
The original emails are kept on your hosting account waiting to be deleted.
Since there is no option to delete emails from server after you download them, they will just keep piling up.
Your hosting account will run out of space in no time and your email service will stop working.
A computer downloads and keeps your emails only in your hard drive. You will never run out of space!
ALSO, if you lose, drop and damage, or even update your phone, you will lose your emails forever.
A computer has no such risks and you are also able to backup your emails.
