How to set up a email account on a Galaxy S phone



 

You can use your Samsung Galaxy phone to check the email account for your domain hosted with Custom A Design. You can add multiple email accounts to your phone so you can be sure to stay connected for work or personal purposes.
The steps below were taken on a Samsung Galaxy S Version Phone. Your particular phone may be different, but the steps should be somewhat similar.

  1. Click on your Mail icon on the front screen of the phone. If you cannot locate the Mail icon on your screen, touch the Applications icon in the lower right corner and then you should be able to find it.
  2. If you have yet to set up an email account on your phone, you will be taken to a screen with two fields. Enter your email address in the top field and the password in the lower field. After you have entered the correct information, touch the Manual Settings button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. You will be taken to a screen that gives you three option buttons: POP3 AccountIMAP Account, or Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. Select your desired setup by touching the appropriate button. For Custom A Design customers, you can select either POP3 or IMAP, but not the Microsoft Exchange option. We recommend IMAP for setting up email accounts on a phone, however. You can learn the difference between POP3 and IMAP protocols here.
  4. After making your selection, you will see a page that asks for several fields of information.

    IMAP Settings

User Name

Enter your FULL email address, even though the preset does not have the entire address. For example: you@yourdomain.com

Password

Enter the password for the email account.

IMAP Server

If your email is hosted on our servers, then use that mail.yourdomain.com) If your domain is not pointed to us, then use your server name.

Port

This is the port number the phone will use to connect to the server. Security type selection will determine what port number you want to put here. Reference the table below to find the correct port number.

Security Type

The type of security the phone uses to talk to the server. Note that InMotion servers do not differentiate between SSL and TLS settings, so using SSL is the same as TLS.

  3. This screen is your Outgoing Server Settings screen and will be the same whether you use POP3 or IMAP in the previous step. There are a few fields on this page which are important for sending mail through our servers.

SMTP Server

Unless you have a custom third party SMTP server, you will simply use the same server name as you did for POP3 or IMAP settings.

  2. This screen is the Account Options screen. This asks for a couple of last minute details about the frequency of checking emails and whether you want a notification when new email arrives. As always, click the Next button when finished.
  3. The last screen is the Set Up Email screen. Here you will give the mail account a name. This name is just an identifier used on your Android phone. You will also be asked for the name you want to display on outgoing emails. Once you have completed this task, click on the Done button and you are all set to send and receive email using your Samsung Galaxy phone!
