  1. My new S4 is not receiving or sending emails from my main email account, which is a road runner account. It initially worked when the phone was set up. Now it isn’t working.

  2. My text messages show up in my work e-mail account. How can I undo this??

  3. I am only receiving junk mail from my road runner account on my Galaxy S4, none of the good emails I want to receive.

  4. I just switched from an iPhone to the Galaxy S4. I never encountered this problem with the iPhone. Can you tell me where I adjust the server settings?

  5. Thanks!

  6. I set up an email accounts and it works fine except my S4 only keeps the messages of the last 24 hours. Where can I change the set up to keep them for a week?
