How to setup an email account on a Samsung Galaxy S4

IMPORTANT:

The email account keeping fee does not cover assistance using Microsoft Outlook or any other email software. For assistance using the Samsung Galaxy S4 for email accounts, please refer to Samsung or your internet provider.

Below is a guide we have authored on how you can setup email accounts on your Samsung Galaxy S4, if you get stuck with this, you may need to give Samsung or your phone provider a call for assistance.

From the Home screen, touch Menu  > Settings  > Accounts > Add account  > Email  .

Enter your Email address and Password and touch Next.

Your device will attempt to complete the setup process if your email server settings are available. If you select Manual setup, or your provider's settings are not loaded, you will be taken through the following steps.

Select the type of email account you are setting up. You may choose from POP3 account, IMAP account, or Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync®. You will need to choose POP3.

Enter the following details.

  • Username: enter your full email address
  • Password: your email password
  • POP3 Sever: this is your incoming mail server (example: mail.mydomain.com.au).
  • Security Type: Set this to TLS.

Touch Next.

Your device will attempt to connect to the incoming server with the settings you have entered. If unsuccessful, you will be prompted to Edit details; confirm your settings and try again. If the connection is successful, you will be taken to the Outgoing server settings screen.

You will be asked to give this internet mail account a unique on-screen name. The unique account name is used to differentiate this account from other email accounts on your mobile device.
