    A buddy of mine is trying setup an IMAP email account and it's not working. Is there a way how I can connect the phone to a computer and setup the account with a PC keyboard? I don't know what type of android phone he has, I just know that it's an HTC phone.

    Most servers will support POP3 and IMAP, so you could try POP if IMAP won't work. I don't know there is a way to do it via PC.

    There are different port numbers for IMAP than the more common POP3. Make sure the mail program is set to IMAP & or that it is manually set to the correct port numbers.
