how to setup first email account on your smartphone

The first email account on your phone is your Gmail account, which is required in order to use an Android phone. After that, you add email accounts as described in the next section.

 

If your phone uses the Email app, setting up the first email account works differently from adding additional accounts. You must know the email account’s sign-in (your email address) and password. When you have that information, follow these steps in the Email app to configure that first account:

 

1)Start the Email app.

Look for it in the Apps drawer. If it’s not there, use the Gmail app instead. See the next section.

 

The first screen you see is Set Up Email. If you’ve already run the Email app. You’re taken to the Email inbox and you can skip these steps. See the next section for information on adding accounts.

 

2)Type the email address you use for the account.

For example, if you have a Comcast email account, use the onscreen keyboard to type your  mothi@comcast.net email address in the Email Address box.

3)Type the account’s password

 

4)Tap the NEXT button or, if you can’t see that button, tap the DONE button on the onscreen keyboard.

If you’re lucky, everything is connected and you can move on to Step 5. Otherwise, you have to specify the details as provided by your ISP. See the later section “Adding an account manually.”

 

5)Set account options.

You might want to reset the Inbox Checking Frequency option to something other than 15 minutes. I recommend keeping the other items selected until you become familiar with how your phone handles email.

 

6)Tap the NEXT button.

 

7)Give the account a name and confirm your own name.

The phone chooses the email server name or your email address as the account name. if that choice doesn’t ring a bell, rename the account. For example, I name my ISP’s email account Main because it’s my main account.

 

The Your Name field shows your name as it’s applied to outgoing messages. So if your name is really Annabelle Leigh Meriwether and not amer82, you can make that change now.

 

8)Tap the DONE button.

You’re done.

 

The next thing you see is your email account inbox. The phone proceeds to synchronize any pending email you have in your account, updating the screen as you watch. See the later section “you’ve Got Mail” for what to do next.

 

If you use Yahoo! Mail, I recommend getting the Yahoo! Mail app, which handles your Yahoo! Mail far better than the Email app (or the Gmail app). The Yahoo! Mail app gives you access to other Yahoo! Features that you may use and enjoy.
