Step-by-step e-mail configuration for Android

Step-by-step instructions for configuring your e-mail account on an Android smartphone.

If you have created an e-mail address in the Control Panel, you can configure this account on your Android smartphone.

E-mail account administration

Go to Settings on your smartphone and then to Accounts & Synchronization.

Adding an e-mail account

To add a new account, click on Add account and then E-mail.

Configuration

Enter your full e-mail address and click Next.

Now enter the password that you defined in the Control Panel during creating the e-mail address and select Manual setup.

Choosing the account type: POP3 or IMAP 

Now choose between a POP3 or IMAP account. 

Using IMAP saves your e-mails on the server. Each time you read an e-mail, a copy is downloaded from the server. 

Using POP3 downloads and saves your e-mails to your smartphone. The messages are then deleted from the server. This way, you can also read your e-mails offline at any time, for example if you are on the train. 

If you are not certain choose IMAP.

IMAP

Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.
Enter imap.mail.hostpoint.ch as IMAP server.
Select SSL/TLS (accept all certificates) for Security Typ. The port will automatically change to 993.

POP3

Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.
Enter pop.mail.hostpoint.ch as POP3 server.
Select SSL/TLS (accept all certificates) for Security Typ. The port will automatically change to 995.

Outgoing mail server

Enter asmtp.mail.hostpoint.ch as SMTP server. 
Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.
This is mandatory; otherwise SMTP authentication will not work and you will not be able to send e-mails. 
Select SSL/TLS (accept all certificates) for Security Typ. The port will automatically change to 465.

Finish

The setup wizard will now prompt you to set how frequently to retrieve your e-mails and wether to notify you when new e-mails are received or not.

Please note that your mobile provider may charge you for the data transferred if you select the Push option and that this may increase data consumption while roaming in other countries.

To finish the setup, enter a name for your account (shown in the accounts list) and the sender name that will be shown to your e-mail recipients.
