   Android Email Configuration

Question 

 How do I setup my QWK.net email on my Android?

 

 

Answer 

Email setup on Android phones can vary based on version, manufacturer, and etc. However, most should be very similar and all will need the information given below. Th instruction provided here are specific to the default mail app on more recent versions of android.

Open the "Email" app
Select "Add Account;" If you're adding another account, push the 3 dots for settings, then "Add Account"
Enter your E-mail address and your e-mail password
     Click the "Manual Setup" button
Now Select they type of account you'd like:
     (IMAP leaves mail on the server and is accessible from multiple devices; this also fills your inbox space. Good for multiple devices like a phone and computer)
     (POP3 - Downloads all mail from the server; only accessible from the device initially used to check the mail. Good for work computers)
Now enter the following information:
Username: email@yourdomain.com
Password: The password you defined when setting up your email on QWK.net servers
Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com (The same for incoming, outgoing, SMTP, etc.)
Skip the port and select either None or SSL/TLS (Using SSL/TLS requires a fully qualified domain name. See details below)
     Click "Next"
Set this server to the same as before
Make sure this port is 587
Outgoing mail requires Authentication, so check "Require Sign-in"
Enter your full Email address in "Username"
Enter your password in "Password"
     Click "Next"
Now choose from the settings listed to best match how you'd like your mail handled
     Click "Next" through the next couple screens and you're done!

Although the method above is the easiest way to set up your e-mail, we would recommend using SSL when a device allows for it. This provides extra security to help keep your email secure. It requires changing a few minor settings during or after setup. Here are the changes that are necessary:


-If you wish to use SSL-

If you wish to use SSL you must use the fully qualified name for your mail server instead of mail.yourdomain.com. This can be found by Doing the following:

1. Go to your Control Panel, and click "Domains" 
    
2. Then half way down the list click the "edit" symbol next to "DNS Configuration" 
    
3. You will see and entry with mail.yourdomain.com on the left and something like mail3.qwknetllc.com on the right. The mail3.qwknetllc.com or whatever is on the right would be your fully qualified server name.

For SSL these settings would change:

Incoming Server name: example: mail3.qwknetllc.com


Outgoing Server(SMTP): example: mail3.qwknetllc.com

Incoming Port: 995 (POP3 Only)


Incoming Port: 993 (IMAP Only)


Outgoing Port: 465

-Alternatively-
Call us and provide us with a domain and we'd be happy to let you know which server you're on. You can also start a ticket or request in a ticket to know the server name and we can give it to you there as well.
