How to Setup Android for cPanel email

Setting up Android Email

This tutorial shows you how to setup an Android device to check your Email. You can setup Android Email to check your Email by doing the following:

Firstly start off by checking the relevant server settings within your cPanel account.

Then click on Configure Email Client next to the Email Account you wish to configure in Android.

Then we need to note down the Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended) as shown below.

NOTE: The server settings are unique to your hosting account and the below server details should be ignored.  Please ensure you use the server details listed within your cPanel Hosting Account.

1. On front screen click Email icon. If you cannot find it, select the Applications icon in the lower right corner and locate it within the Apps menu.
