How do I set up an Android to access email? (when using Open-Xchange)

Set up an Android to access email
1. On your Android (Droid) phone, click the Mail icon. To locate the icon, open the applications tray.

2. Add a New Account.

  • If you already have an email account set up, touch Menu. Go to More and then, touch New Account

  • If you don't have an email account set up, Choose a mail provider. Touch Other (POP3/IMAP)



Note: If you don't see the More option, go to Menu and touch Accounts. Then, go to Menu and touch Add account.

3. Enter your email address and password. Then touch Manual setup.

4. Select IMAP (or POP3). (We recommend you use IMAP. IMAP accounts are the recommended option for customers that want to check email from multiple sources (home computer, work computer, mobile phone).)

5. Change the IMAP server to imap.homestead.com (or use pop.homestead.com for POP3)

6. Confirm the Incoming Settings:


  • Port: 143 for IMAP (or Port: 110 for POP3).

  • User name: your email address

  • Password: your mailbox password

  • Security Type: None



7. Touch Next.

8. In the Outgoing server settings, change the SMTP server to: smtp.homestead.com.

9. Confirm the Outgoing server settings


  • Port: 587

  • User Name: your email address

  • Password: your mailbox password

  • Security Type: None



10. Touch Finish setup.
