How To Setup Email On Android Phone / Tablet - Android Device Email

This article will show you how to set up email on the Gmail app for the Android OS.

Note: If you have an older Android device that uses the Email app, follow these instructions instead.

  1. Open the Gmail app and navigate to the Settings section.
  2. Tap Add account.
  3. Tap Personal (IMAP/POP) and then Next.

  5. Choose the type of email account you will be using.
    • POP3 will download the emails from the server and store them on your phone.
    • IMAP will store the emails on the server and show a cached copy on your phone. IMAP is best in most cases.
    • Exchange is not supported because it requires a Microsoft Exchange server
