Setting up the Gmail app on Android

For Android, you’ll need to install the Gmail app from the Play Store if it’s not already installed on our device. Once installed, open the app and:

  • Slide the drawer from the left of the screen by swiping across the left side of your screen or by pressing the 3 horizontal lines icon to the left of “Search mail”
  • Scroll to the bottom and choose “Settings”
  • Choose “Add account”
  • Choose “Other”
  • Enter your email address and tap Next
  • Choose “Personal (IMAP)” when asked what type of account it is. Do not select Personal (POP3) or you could lose email.
  • Enter your password and tap Next
  • Erase the contents of the “Server” box and enter:
  • Tap Next
  • Now again, this time for the outgoing server, erase the contents of the “Server” box and enter:
  • Tap Next
  • The default Account Options are fine, so you can tap Next
  • Check your name is correct on the next screen and tap Next

Your account should now be set up in Gmail
