    • Password: your-password
    • IMAP server:
    • Security type: SSL (always)
    • Authentication type: PLAIN

NOTE: It is possible to use other email apps with Android devices, but we have found the K-9 Mail app to be the most effective. If you choose to use another app, use the general settings above to configure your app.
