So, in all their infinite wisdom, Vodafone have abandoned their SMTP server, which is rather annoying.
Anyway, I have a personal website, which I need to be able to receive emails from as soon as they are sent, so the logical option is to set up POP3 mailing.
My problem is, that I already have a Gmail and yahoo account, and so can't use these ones.
I have the Galaxy Note, and unfortunately, can't override the need for an SMTP server. I'm not too fussed about being able to reply from the phone, I just need to receive them, or I'll lose out on some business.
Anyone have any ideas/solutions?
Solved! See solution

If your trying tyo acess email from a personal website your hosting company should be able to provide you with the appropriate server details.
Alternativly you could athorise your gmail account to send emails for your personal website.
The way i have it set up is to get GMail to check for new emails to my personal site address via my hosts POP3 server(highlighted yellow in the screenshot). I have then authorised Gmail to send emails from my personal account(highlighted red)
Fotr instructions on setting thuiis up follow the guides on Google Support Center

Thanks, I now have my personal emails going straight to my phone.
One more question, is there a way to split them into 2 separate folders, one for my Googlemail account and one for my personal account?

Gmail doesn't use folders instead you can add labels to an email giving you the options of categorising messages.
I have filters set up to label everything sent my personal domain with one label. I have various others set up as well. It's a great tool when you start using it!
I'l just chuck in a couple screengrabs of the filter setup screen:
