How to setup my email account in my Android device?

You can use your Android device to access the email account that you have created with your hosting package. You can add more than one email accounts to your device, in order to not miss any business or personal messages. To add a new email account in an Android device you can follow the steps below. In this case, we will use a Samsung Galaxy smartphone with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow version. Your device might be a little different, but the process is the same for all Android devices. 

If you are not sure which settings to use for your email, you can find them here.

  1. Unlock your device and navigate to the menu. Then, find and tap the Email app icon.
  2. Type your email address and your password.

    You have the option to set up an POP3 account to download your emails from the mail server and save them locally in your device, or an IMAP account in order to keep your emails on the mail server and only read a copy of them on your device.
  4. Now you have to type the Incoming mail server for your account.
