Email Setup: Android

Glenn Kowalski -

IMAP is natively supported by the Android OS, however CalDAV and CardDAV (for Addresses and Calendar syncing) require installation of 3rd party apps, which are available through Google play. The tested apps are CalDAV-sync and CardDAV-sync.

To set up IMAP email on Android:

1. From the Home screen, tap the Application button and then tap the Email icon.

2. If this is your first email account, you will be presented with an email setup screen, tap the Next button. Otherwise, press the Menu button, tap Accounts, press the Menu button, and tap Add account.

3. Enter your entire email address and in the second box, enter the password associated with your email account.

4. Tap the Manual setup button and then tap the IMAP button and enter the following information in the fields provided:

  • Username—Enter your entire email address.
  • Password—Enter the password associated with your email account.
  • IMAP server—Enter the secure server name:
    mail.maclaboratory.net (Mail 1) or mail2.maclaboratory.net (Mail 2)  Ask us which server has your account.
  • Port—Enter the secure port number: 993
  • Security type—Select SSL

5. Tap the Next button. The device will connect to the internet and check your incoming settings.

6. On the Outgoing server settings screen, enter the following information in the fields provided:

  • SMTP server—Enter the secure server name:
    mail.maclaboratory.net (Mail 1) or mail2.maclaboratory.net (Mail 2)  Ask us which server has your account.
