How to setup email account using the Samsung Galaxy S series

For your information as the Samsung Galaxy S series which have been using the Android system Operating System which they are all similar to each other for example Galaxy SII, SIII and the recent SIV.

Below is the steps on how to setup the emails account for Samsung Galaxy S series:

1. Click on your Mail icon on the front screen of the phone. If you cannot locate the Mail icon on your screen, touch the Applications icon in the lower right corner and then you should be able to find it.

2. If you have yet to set up an email account on your phone, you will be taken to a screen with two fields. Enter youremail address in the top field and the password in the lower field. After you have entered the correct information, touch the Manual Settings button at the bottom of the screen.

3. You will be taken to a screen that gives you three option buttons: POP3 Account, IMAP Account, or Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. Select your desired setup by touching the appropriate button. For InMotion Hosting customers, you can select either POP3 or IMAP, but not the Microsoft Exchange option. We do recommend IMAP for setting up email accounts on a phone, however. You can learn the difference between POP3 and IMAP protocols here.

4. After making your selection, you will see a page that asks for several fields of information. Below is the reference that you may refer to in order to fill in the require information:
 
IMAP Settings

Enter your FULL email address, even though the preset does not have the entire address. For example: user@domain.com

Password

Enter the password for the email account.

IMAP Server

mail.yourdomainname.com

Port

143

Security

This type of security we will normally use the normally port which is referring to the 143 port for standard IMAp setting.

IMAP path prefix

Leave this field empty.

 

POP3 Settings

User name

Enter your FULL email address, even though the preset does not have the entire address. For example: user@domain.com

Security

This type of security we will normally use the normally port which is referring to the 110 port for standard IMAp setting.

Delete Email from Server

At this side you can choose to either:


1. Never delete the emails from the server

2. Leaves email on the server unless you delete it from your phone's Inbox or the email client application inbox side.

 

Once you have entered your settings, touch the Next button found at the bottom of the screen.

Your phone will now check the incoming settings with the server to ensure they are correct and that it can connect. Once it has been confirmed, you will be taken to the next screen.

5. This screen is your “Outgoing Server Settings” screen and will be the same whether you use POP3 or IMAP in the previous step. There are a few fields on this page which are important for sending mail through our servers.

 

User name

Unless you have a custom third party SMTP server, you will simply use the same server name as you did for POP3 or IMAP settings.

Port

The port number used to converse with the server. The port number will be determined by the security type selected below.

Security

This type of security we will normally use the normally port which is referring to the port 25 or 587 for standard SMTP setting. Do remember that sometimes port 25 is being blocked by the ISP on your network Environment as it is best for your side to choose the 587 port..

Require Sign in

Checkbox for requiring SMTP authentication. Unchecking this box can cause connection errors.

Username

As with the incoming server, use your entire email address.

Password

The password for the email address.


6. This screen is the ”Account Options” screen. This asks for a couple of last minute details about the frequency of checking emails and whether you want a notification when new email arrives. As always, click the Next button when finished.

 

7. The last screen is the “Set Up Email” screen. Here you will give the mail account a name. This name is just an identifier used on your Android phone. You will also be asked for the name you want to display on outgoing emails. Once you have completed this task, click on the Done button and you are all set to send and receive email using your Samsung Galaxy phone!
