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. For a more feature rich email client, you can download and configure k-9 mail
for free.

  1. Click on "Add Other Account"



  2. Enter your email address and password, and select Manual Setup:



  3. Select IMAP Account



  4. Input

    Email address
    Username: Full email address
    Password

    Server: imap.homestead.com
    Security: SSL
    Port: 993

    Click Next




  5. Input

    SMTP Server: smtp.homestead.com
    Security: SSL
    Port: 465
    Username: Full email address
    Password

    Click Next



  6. Choose your settings and click Next



  7. Input your preferences and click Done



    You can now see your email!
