How do I set up my email on an Android phone?


It is always a good idea to check your phone’s user instructions before setting up an email account. This will help you see if there are any unique features to its user interface.

  1. Once you’re in Settings, find Add Account and tap to access the setup screen.

  2. Enter your email address and password. This must be the same password you already use to access your email account.

    Enter your email and password

  3. Now it will ask you what type of email account you are setting up. Select POP3. If you want to set up an IMAP account, click here.

  4. On the Incoming settings screen, enter the following:

    • If you phone has not already autofilled the Username and Password fields, enter your email address under Username. Then enter your password under Password. Make sure it is the same password that you entered at step (3).

    • Under Incoming Server, enter mail.[your domain].com. So if your email address is address@example.com, you would enter pop3.example.com.

    • Under Port, enter 110. Your phone may have autofilled this field.

    • Under Security type, select None.

    • Tap Next.

  6. You may or may not need to tap Next again, depending on your phone’s interface, before you get to the screen where you name your account and enter the name you wish people to see when you send them a message. Enter your information, tap Done, and that’s it. If everything is working correctly, you ought to see some email appear in your account within a few minutes.


If your email still isn’t working, check your settings and try again. If you are unsure whether or not it is working, try a test email. If you have another account, send yourself a message. If not, ask a friend, colleague, or family member to send one so you can see if it goes through.
