    I have to change server settings. I can find outgoing server box, but not incoming server box. Where is it?

    Usually it's easier to delete the account and add it again with the new settings. In the case of supported accounts like Yahoo, iCloud, Gmail, and Outlook.com, the default setups will automatically pull down the most current settings when you enter your email address and password.

    You won't find much in the way of incoming settings on most types of accounts. The domain of the email address (the part after the @) is usually all that's needed.

    If you do have an account that lets you fool with both the outgoing and incoming server settings, they should be hiding under the Advanced settings. I'd love to give more details, but I don't have an account of this type myself, so I can't dig around and look.

    Good luck.
