This tutorial describes how to set up HostPapa’s Basic or Advanced email on Android devices.
Please note that if you have not already done so, you will first need to configure and activate your HostPapa email service.
Open your Android Mail app, then click the hamburger icon to go to the main menu. At the bottom of the screen, choose Settings.
From inside the settings area, tap the Add Account option.
On the Set up email screen, tap the Other option at the bottom of the list.
NOTE: For this tutorial, we will use firstname.lastname@example.org as our test email account. You will need to change some of the settings to match your setup.
Next you’ll be asked to fill in your email address. Simply fill in the address, then click Next.
Next, choose the type of account you wish to set up, IMAP or POP. In this example, we’ll set up an IMAP account.
Android will now ask you to enter the email address password. Simply fill it in and click Next.
On the screen that follows, enter the full email address for the username, along with the account password and incoming server name, then click next.
NOTE: The incoming server will be mail.papamail.net regardless of whether you are setting up IMAP or POP.
On the screen that follows, enter the outgoing mail settings. Ensure that Require sign-in for emails is toggled to the on (green) position, as highlighted (red) in the screenshot below.
The username is always the full email address.
Once completed, click Next.
Android will also ask you to confirm some further Account options for your email checking frequency. You can set this as you wish, then click Next.
Next, you will see a confirmation message indicating that the account has been set up successfully. This is where you will also set up the name you want displayed when sending emails from this device.
Clicking next will take you back to the list of the email accounts set up on your device. You can now access your newly-added account from within the Android Mail app.
