To set up a new email account on your Samsung phone, start by going to the settings app, (it can be found by touching the "Apps" icon on your home screen. You'll probably have to swipe through a couple pages of apps to find it; it's usually at the end.)

Once you've opened the settings app, you should see 4 tabs across the top. Touch the one that says "Accounts."

Under the Accounts tab, you'll see a "My Accounts" section with a few account types in it, like "Email" and "Google" with "Add Account" at the bottom. We want to add an account, so touch that one.

Once you're in the "Add Account" screen, then you can choose "Email."

Next, this is where you can enter the new email address you want to set up, and the password that we gave you for it. If you don't have your email password, give us a call at 705-792-7155 and we can help you out. 

*Note that, at this point, it's important to make sure you have the right password because if you enter the wrong password too many times, you might trip our server's security systems and get blocked out. If you think this might have happened, try going to (or your own website, if it's hosted with us) and if you see a white screen with a small error message, that means you're blocked. Don't worry though! Your site is not down, and all you have to do to get un-blocked is give us a call at 705-792-7155 or send us an email to and give us you IP address, which you can find simply by going to and searching for "what is my ip" - the number at the top if the search results (you don't have to click on anything) is your public IP address. Just send us that number and we'll let you back in.

Now it will ask you for the type of account you would like to set up. For phones, IMAP is almost always best, so unless you have a specific reason to use something else, choose IMAP. (The rest of these instructions assume that you chose IMAP)

Now we'll set up the incoming server settings.

The "Email Address" field should already have your address filled in, so you can just leave that.

The "Username" field, by default, has just the first part of your email address filled in for you, but it needs the whole address, so it matches the field above it (like what is shown below.)

The "Password" field should also be filled in for you (you'll just see dots) you can leave that as-is. 

In the "IMAP Server" field, you'll have to type in "" (just like in the screenshot below.)

For "Security Type" choose "SSL." When you select that, the Port number should be automatically filled in for you. It should be 993.

You can leave "IMAP path prefix" blank and press Next.

Next, we'll configure the outgoing settings.

The "SMPT server" field should be "" (as shown below)

For "Security Type" you can choose SSL again, and the Port number should automatically fill in "465" (if it doesn't you can type that in.)

You can leave "Require sign-in" checked, and the "User name" and "Password" fields should already be filled in for you. If not, you can re-enter your email address and password (your email address goes under "Username") The press Next. (We're almost done!)

The next screen you'll see is "Account options." These setting are mostly just a matter of preference. If you're unsure about what to choose, you can just leave them as they are.

"Period to sync email" is the length of time each email will be on your phone for (unless you delete it) for example, if it is set to "2 weeks" your phone will have all your emails from the past 2 weeks. Once an email is more than 2 weeks old, it will be deleted only from your phone, but will remain on the server, and on any other devices that have a longer sync time. It will also remain available in webmail.

"Sync schedule" is the frequency that your phone will check for new emails, and update anything that may have changed on the server. Remember that you can also manually refresh/sync your emails at any time, if you want to see if anything came in without waiting for the 15-minute sync.

"Peak schedule" lets you set an alternate sync schedule for peak times, which you can configure later.

Checking "Sync Email" tells your phone to immediately sync all your email as soon as the account is set up.

Checking "Send email from this account by default" makes this account the default account on your phone. If you set this account as default, you can still select any other accounts that are set up on the phone when you're sending email, and vice-versa if you do not make this the default account.

"Notify me when email arrives" enables a notification, similar to a text massage notification (vibration or sound) when new emails arrive.

And "Automatically download attachments when connected to Wi-Fi" is fairly self-explanatory. If left un-checked, your phone won't download email attachments unless you tell it to.

When you're done, press next. There's just one more screen left...

Here you can give the account a name, by default, it uses the address as the name; you can also call it something like "work email" or you can just leave that blank.

The second field is your name, as it will be displayed on your outgoing messages (so when you send mail to people, this is the name they will see.)

Then you can press Done, and you're ready to start emailing!

You can open up your mail app, and, if you did not set your new address as default, you can find it by tapping the little '3 lines' menu button at the top. If you did set your new address as default, you can find your other address(es) here.
