To begin, please locate and open the Gmail App on your android device. In case you do not have email accounts configured yet, the email application will prompt you to add your first account by clicking on "Add an email address".
If you have existing email accounts already configured in your Gmail app, you will need to click on the email icon (your image) located at the top right corner of the screen. Afterward, you will need to select the "Add another account" option.
In both cases, your android device will take you to the same "Set up email" section, where you will need to select the email account type. To configure a custom email account, please make sure to choose the last "Other" option.
At the first "Add your email address" step, you will need to enter your email address. Once you have entered it, please click on "Manual Setup".
At the next step, you will need to select whether you will be configuring your email as an IMAP or POP3 account. Depending on your preferences, please choose the corresponding "Personal (POP3)" or "Personal (IMAP)" option.
Please note that the configuration process for both account types is the same apart of the Incoming mail server settings, which we will explain in detail for each of the protocols.
After selecting the desired account configuration type, you will need to enter your email account password and click on "Next".
At the following "Incoming server settings" step, you will need to specify the IMAP/POP3 details:
The next, "Outgoing server settings", is the step where you will need to configure the SMTP settings.
When done, please click on the "Next" button.
At the following step, you will be able to configure your synchronization preferences and additional account settings.
