How do I setup my email on an Android device?




  1. On your Android device, open the "Email" application.
  2. Press the "Menu" button, select "More...", and then select "New account".
  3. Select the "Other (POP3/IMAP)" option.
  4. Select the "Manual setup" option.
  5. Fill in the required information:
    • Protocol - Select either POP or IMAP. If you're unsure which to choose, you probably want IMAP.
    • Email address - Your email address.
    • Username - This will be the same as your email address.
    • Password - The password for your email address.
    • POP/IMAP Server - This will be mail.yourdomain.com, where yourdomain.com is the domain of your email account.
    • Security Type- Most servers only support "None" here. Contact our technical support to see if your account's server supports otherwise.
    • Server Port - Leave this as default.
  6. Select the "Next" button.
  7. After your incoming information is validated, enter your outgoing server settings. Most of the settings will already be set for you from the previous screen:
    • Login Required - Leave this as default.
    • Username - Leave this as default.
    • Password - This this as default.
    • POP/IMAP Server - This will be mail.yourdomain.com, where yourdomain.com is the domain of your email account.
    • Security Type- Most servers only support "None" here. Contact our technical support to see if your account's server supports otherwise.
    • Server Port - Leave this as default.
  8. After your outgoing server information is verified, give the email account a name and enter your name.
  9. You can select to make the email account your default, if you so desire.
  10. Press the "Finish setup" button to complete the setup.
