TotalChoice Hosting: 2020 Staff Update

Hey TCH-Family!

2020 is lining up to be another incredible year at TotalChoice Hosting. To start, we have some exciting staff updates!

First up is our new Support Manager Bryan! After being with TotalChoice for over 5 years Bryan is ready to step up to the plate and lead our support staff to continued success. Bryan is incredibly motivated and has some great ideas to further improve support here at TCH. We can’t wait to see what Bryan has to offer in this new role!

Since our founding in 1999 we’ve been a family owned company, but more importantly we continue that tradition by hiring from within the family. Now in his 4th year at TotalChoice, Billy Kish has recently been promoted to Operations Manager. Billy has an incredible vision for the future of the company, leading us into the next generation of TotalChoice Hosting! Congratulations and Thank You to both Billy and Bryan on their promotions but also their many years of hard work.

In a word from our CEO and founder Bill Kish: “Having the right team makes work easy, thank you to the TCH-Staff for your continued hard work and loyalty! Congrats Billy and Bryan!”

Come back to the TCH-BLOG soon to hear the latest on operations, maintenance, and more!

How To: Add Your Website’s E-Mail To Your Android Device

We recently showed you How To: Add Your Website’s E-mail To Your Apple Device so we figured now we would show you how to add your e-mail to your Android device! The screen shots and directions are from Android 4.1.1 but should be similar on most versions of Android.

1. First, open the Email app (Note: Icon may look different on your device).

Add your TCH Email to Android

1A. If a screen similar to this one comes up, select “Others.”


2. A screen will open that looks like this:


Select whether you would like to access your e-mail via POP3 or IMAP. The main difference is that IMAP (Internet Messaged Access Protocol) syncs with your email server so that any changes you make will appear anywhere you access your e-mail via IMAP (Inbox, Drafts, Sent Mail, etc. will be synced across all devices).

POP (Post Office Protocol) is different in that your mail client and mail server are not synced. Any changes you make in  your mail client will not be anywhere else except that particular client on that device. My personal preference is IMAP but you may use whichever one you like.

3. Enter your e-mail address and password, then click the “Manual Setup.”


4. Input your e-mail address as the “User name” and your password where it says “Password”. Change the IMAP or POP3 server to (substituting with your actual domain). The Security type should be ‘None’ and if you are using IMAP, the port should 143 (unless you have an SSL certificate). If you are using POP3, the port should be 110. Click the ‘Next’ button.

IMAP Port is 143.

POP3 Port is 110.

5. Input as the SMTP server (substituting with your actual domain). Select None as the Security Type and 587 for the port (if you don’t have an SSL certificate). Enter your username and password. 587 is the same port for both IMAP and POP3 but if 587 does not work, please try port # 26.


6. Next, select your update frequency and whether or not you would like to be notified when email arrives. Click Next.


7. Name the account whatever you would like and fill in your name. Click Done and you’re done!
