Configuring Android Smartphones & Tablets

There are a large number of email apps available. While we have guides for the default Email app and K-9 Mail, be aware that things can change significantly between different versions of the Android OS and the apps themselves. The guides should serve as a pretty good starting point, though.

POP3 or IMAP?

Some software will only allow you to use IMAP. Usually, when you delete mail using IMAP, it is also deleted from the mail server. This can also be the default with POP3. Be sure to properly configure your smartphone settings. Verify that your smartphone is not removing mail from the server that you also want to access from another device.
