Set up email on Android

How to set up your Android smartphone to use your Mail inbox:

Please note: The setup of the e-mail account is described using the Samsung GALAXY S6 smartphone model with Android 6.0.1 as an example. The menu items listed below may differ on other Android models.

Step 1

Launch the Email app.

If you haven't set up an account in the Email app yet, enter your email address and password . Then tap Sign In .

If you already have an account set up in the Mail app, tap More > Settings . Tap Add New Account in the menu.

step 2

Enter your email address and password. Then tap Manual setup .

step 3

Choose the type of account you want. You can choose between the following account types:

  • pop3 account
  • IMAP account
  • Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync

We recommend using the default IMAP account.

If you want to read and receive e-mails on the go, set up the IMAP account type. If you only manage your e-mails on your PC, POP3 is the right choice.

step 4

Now enter your account data and make the necessary settings or details for the incoming and outgoing server. See the table below for more information. Then tap Sign In.
