These instructions are for the stock email app included with most Android tablets.
Launch the Mail application from your home screen. Your icon may look different.
On this screen enter in your full email address and your email password. After you have done this tap next.
On this screen make sure you tap POP3
This screen should load with a 'best guess' of your incoming email settings. However you might need to change them to the following if it hasn't.
Again on this screen the application will attempt to fill out the information as best as possible by itself. So please ensure the settings are as follows.
The options on this page are entirely up your own personal preference. The more often your phone or tablet checks email the more the battery will drain. After you've selected your options (or leave as they are) tap next.
And we're done with the settings. This last step requires you to put a name for your email. This is the name that will appear to people when you send them an email from this device. It must be entered.
