Android comes with an email app on board out of the box, which you can use to check or compose your emails. Then you don’t have to access your mailbox through the Internet browser. The prerequisite is that you set up an e-mail account, i.e. tell the smartphone where and how it can access your e-mails. After all, these are initially stored on the server of your mail provider. Here’s how:
Setup 1and1 email on android
- First, establish an Internet connection.
- Call up Set up e-mail. The easiest way to do this is to open the pre-installed email app. Alternatively, select Settings > Accounts (or Account & sync) > Email > Account settings (or vice versa, depending on the Android version) > Add account.
- For Set up email, tap in each field and use the keyboard that appears to enter your email address and password.
- Tap Next.
- A selection box will appear where you can choose between POP3 or IMAP account type. You will learn the meaning of both options in the box below.
- In both cases, the settings for the incoming server will appear afterwards. Here you must first enter your user name, i.e. your e-mail address, and your password.
- Under POP3 server or IMAP server, you then enter the account type plus the name of your mail provider.
Example: If you have chosen the POP3 account type and have an e-mail account with 1&1, your POP3 server entry will be: pop.1and1.com.
- The correct number for port is usually 110. The port number ensures the correct forwarding of data in a network. If your smartphone cannot establish a connection afterwards, please contact your e-mail provider.
- Under Security type, select the desired encryption. If you select None, your e-mails will be sent unencrypted; with SSL, all transmission is encrypted. For security, you should rather encrypt your mail traffic, even if the communication takes slightly longer due to encryption and decryption.
- Depending on the Android version, you have the option with POP3 to select Never for Delete mail from server. Then your mails will also continue to be stored on the server of your e-mail provider. With IMAP, this is the case anyway.
- Tap on Next.
- Under Settings for outgoing mail servers, enter the following for SMTP server: smtp.name of your mail provider, for example smtp.gmail.com with a Google mail account or smtp.gmx.de with a GMX account. Also pay attention to the extension, whether it is .com or .de or other.
- The correct number for port is usually 25. If your smartphone automatically displays a different number, leave it as it is. If your smartphone is subsequently unable to connect, please contact your email provider.
- As before, select the desired encryption and enter your e-mail address for User name and then the password.
- Tap Next.
- Under Account options, check Send emails from this account by default and Notify me when you receive emails if you want. Under Retrieval frequency, you can set how often your smartphone should “check” the mail server to see if new emails have arrived.
- Tap Next to complete the setup. If you wish, you can now enter what you want to call the account, for example “GMX account” or “Company mails”, and which name will be displayed to the recipient when they receive e-mails from you.
