instructions cover setting up email on an Android device. Each Android device is different and comes with different mail apps. The device that is displayed here is a Samsung Galaxy S7 and the app used is the default mail app for this device. Although all devices may be different, the email settings will stay the same. Here is a list of information that you will need to put in your mail app settings. 

  • The inbound server must be set to, mail.yourdomain (i.e. if your domain is sharefaith.com then your inbound server would be mail.sharefiaith.com)
  • The incoming port must be 143 unless you have an ssl (not typical) then it is 993.
  • The outgoing server must be set to, smtp.sharefaithwebsites.net.
  • The outgoing Port must be set to 587 unless you want to use ssl then it is 465.
  • If you have a Root Folder Path, you must type the word "inbox" into that field, it must all be lowercase letters.
  • Make sure that all of your usernames have your complete email address.
