How do I setup IMAP email on my Android device using the stock email client?

If you aren't sure of the difference between POP and IMAP and why you would use one or the other, please click here.

Here are the settings for the stock Android email client. It is somewhat feature poor, but it does connect to the email. Your sent mail may not be synchronized to all devices. For a more feature rich email client, you can download k-9 mail for free.

1) Enter your email address and password, then hit Manual setup.

2) Click IMAP

3) Enter the settings as shown. Hit next.

4) Again, enter the settings as shown. Hit next.

5) Set your options as desired. Hit next.

6) The account name is just the name displayed in your account list so if you have several email accounts, it is easily identified. The name, is what will display in the from field when you send email to others. Click next.

7)And now you will receive mail.
