Configure email accounts of my Shared Hosting: Android Gmail

Configure email account on Android

The Android operating system, present in the majority of Smartphones today, offers us from the Play Store application a great variety of different email managers, each with a slightly different configuration, however, the parameters of configuration that we will use will always be the same (we will see them later).

To show a standard mail configuration, with a mail manager present in all our Android phones without having to install anything, we are going to configure our mail account in Gmail for Android.

The data that we must take into account for the configuration of the email account are the following:

  • Incoming mail server
  • Outgoing mail server
  • Account name
  • Password
  • SMTP port: 587
  • IMAP port: 143
  • POP3 port: 110
  • Protocol: Start TLS

In this case, the first account that is configured in the manager is always that of our Android phone, a Gmail account that we have created or linked to be able to enjoy all the services that the operating system makes available to us.

So, in this case, we are going to configure a second email account in the manager.

We open the mail application. Our usual email account will be opened. From this screen, click on the drop-down menu icon:

The menu will open. We slide to the end of it, until we see the "Settings" icon. Click on it:

The settings menu will open. Click on "Add account":

Then the email setup wizard will start. In order to configure an account with our own domain, we must click on "Other service":

We introduce the corresponding email account and click on "Manual configuration":

In this step, it will ask us what type of account we want to configure. We will have to choose if we want to configure the account with the IMAP or POP3 incoming mail protocol (in the following [manual*(https://www.swhosting.com/en/comunidad/manual/configuracion-de-cuentas-de-correo-de-mi-hosting-compartido), in the section "Mail protocols" we explain in detail the types of mail account that can be configured, what are the differences between them and what are the advantages and disadvantages between both).

For our example, we are going to configure the account in IMAP:

Now we must enter the password for our email account. Once entered, click on "Next":

enter image description here

We remember you that from SWPanel you will not be able to see the information about the email account password, because in compliance with the ISO 27001, the LOPD and the RGPD, we do not store or provide personal codes, just as we do not have access to email account passwords we don't even provide them.

In the next step, it will ask us to confirm the incoming server settings.

At this time it is very important to make sure that the incoming mail server name is correctly indicated. Otherwise, we must modify it to correspond to the specific configuration of our email account.

In turn, we must make sure that the type of security we configure is "STARTTLS (accept all certificates)". We must specify this so that we do not get a Google alert detecting "third-party certificates".

Once checked and corrected, click on "Next":

If we do not select the manual configuration option, it is possible that during the automatic configuration of the mail manager we will get an alert about "The certificate is not valid". Although the error appears, the certificate issued from SWHosting is valid and works correctly. However, Gmail has its own certificate verification system, so the corresponding certificate must be specified. We are going to configure the mail manager to accept our own certificate.

As soon as the alert appears, click on "Advanced settings":

enter image description here

A certificate information message will be output. We will have to scroll to the end of the message to press "Continue anyway":

enter image description here

At this time, the manager will allow us to continue with the configuration, proceeding with the outgoing server settings. We make sure that the outgoing mail server configuration is correct and click on "Next":

enter image description here

You will then ask us to select account preferences and options. In this step, you will have to choose what settings and preferences you need.

We are going to leave the predefined selections:

enter image description here

Finally, we will get a warning message of "Account configured" and we must click on "Next" to exit the wizard:

enter image description here

Once the configuration is finished, we will already have the mail service with our own domain in the Google Mail mail manager.
