How To Set Up an Email account on the android default email app:
- Open the android default email app on your device.
- Click on Settings in the Menu
- Then click + Add account and enter email address and password
- Click on Manual Setup
- Choose type of account POP3 account.
- Enter the Email Address as the username*
- Enter Incoming Server address as the POP3 server.
By default for some reason the android email client removes the full email address and only uses the part before the @ as the username. Most android email problems are for this reason alone.
Once you have completed these steps you should be able to send outgoing emails and receive incoming emails. You can test the email account by sending a test email to the configured email address.
