Notify me when email arrives: If you select this option, your mobile phone will notify you when you receive a new email message.

Sync contacts from this account: If you select this option, your contacts will be synchronized between your phone and your account.

Select Next and then type a name for this account and the name you want displayed when you send e-mail to others. Select Done to complete the email setup and start using your account.
