Android IMAP Setup

Android IMAP Email Setup with SSL  / TLS

In the steps below we will use bob@your-store.biz as an example email account. Make sure to use your actual domain name in place of your-store.biz  , your actual email address, and the actual user that corresponds to it.

1. Click on the Email icon from your app list.

2. Click Add account, or Manage Accounts –> Add Account

4. Click “Next”,  Select IMAP account

 


5. On the IMAP incoming mail screen

a. fill in your username and password. Note that your username is not  (for example) bob@your-store.biz  it is just in this case bob2 (“bob2″is the actual username showing in the siteadmin).

b. Change the incoming mail server from “imap.your-store.biz” to just “mail.your-store.biz”

c. Set the SSL option to “SSL (Accept all certificates)”, this will normally  automaticalyl set the port to 993 which is correct.

d. Leave IMAP path prefix blank.

6. Then click Next
