Will do. But have now found that it is a Nokia Lumia 520

Thanks, ***** ***** then stand.
Let me know the results please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Nothing has come into the In Box

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, on the phone, send an email to yourself.
Is it then received?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Nothing has happened

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Are you also receiving these emails on a computer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I did not receive the email I sent to myself on my computer but am receiving regular emails daily.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, if you open the web browser on the Nokia, are you able to view websites (indicating it has internet)?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No. It says "We can't display this page at the moment"

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, this is the problem, there is no internet to the phone which is why you cannot send out emails.
We need to ensure mobile data is turned on
Slide your finger left on the display.
Press Settings.
Press mobile network.
Turn mobile data on or off
Press the field below "Data connection".
Press on
Once done, tell me if you now can get a web page to show please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

There is nothing that says mobile network. There is either network + or mobile + SIM

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
You do not see it like this?

If not, press on Mobile and tell me what options you have please.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Date connection which is on

Data roaming options in the box it says "don't roam"

Then SIM settings

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, then we need to rule out the phones firmware as having the issue by reinstalling it. this will remove all data (photos, contacts ect) and return the phone to new, but we cannot avoid this.
To do this, please follow the instructions on my link below
http://deviceguides.vodafone.ie/web/nokia-lumia-520/change-settings/restart/restore-factory-default-settings/
Once done, set up the phone again like when you first received it, add the email account and tell me please if it now sends and receives emails and has internet.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

As I really don't want to lose all my contacts, is there a way of saving them before I continue please?

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Check if they are synched online already
Go on your computer to www.live.com
Sign in with the same account you registered the phone with.
Click on the 9 dots in the top left and click on People
Do you see the contacts there?
