Android Mail Configuration
In order to setup your email on an android phone you will need a few things:
- An active internet connection (To make sure it works)
- Incoming and Outgoing email servers settings

|Step 1)||Open the android email app. The email setup will ask you for the email address and password. After you enter the login information, tap the manual setup arrow.|
If this is not the first email account on your phone, go into the settings and tap the “+” icon on the top right part of the screen to begin the setup process.
|Choose which type of account you would like to setup for use on your phone. In this example I am going to be using IMAP, but you can use the following instruction to setup a POP account as well.|
|Step 3)||Input the server settings, username, and password for the incoming mail server. Tap the next button at the bottom of the page, then repeat these steps for the outgoing mail server.|
|Step 4)||Enter the preferences for your email account then tap the next button.|
|Step 5)||Enter your desired account name(A nick name for your email account), and a desired signature that your phone will append to all outgoing emails.|
Thats it, you’re done. Go ahead and send a few messages.
