Android :: How To Send Email Using Phone's Associated GMail Credentials?
Mar 8, 2010
Is it possible in Android to programmatically send an email using the phone's associated GMail credentials? I can send an email when I explicitly provide the username and password, but I was hoping to leverage the Google account already associated with the phone. Note that I don't need to actually access the username or password; I just want to leverage this information indirectly to send email.
Just got my Eris. So far it really kicks a$$. But I do miss Windows Live since I'm a hotmail user (no switch to gmail comments please).My desktop gmail through the web is set up to "Send As" my hotmail account, but if I send a new email via my phone, it sends it from my gmail username.I did a search and it was inconclusive. Does anyone know of a configuration to send new mail with the phones native email as a "Send As?"If not, does K-9 only poll gmail or is it a live sync?
I am writing an app which needs to send an Email using the Stock Gmail app. Is there anywhere a tutorial on how to do that? Basically in my app I know the recipient, subject and message context, I want the gmail app not to show up, just send the email.
This is my first forum. The first thing i would like to find out how to do is how to send some of my paid applications to my friends or family etc. through email (Gmail). A couple of weeks ago my friend sent me an IM he had paid for but he refuses to tell me how to do it. This was something i had no idea you can do but i guess i was wrong.
I've got a Sprint Hero and when I try to send a 1MB photo, it basically freezes up my Gmail on my smartphone. Is that normal? I've tried to do it a few times, but it just says "sending" for longer than 10 minutes. It even sort of crashes my phone by hogging all the data and not letting me surf the internet or sync with Remember the Milk and other data reliant apps.I hate this Sprint Hero, by the way (unrooted, running OS 2.1). It's a genuine POS.It's so laggy (takes literally 10 F'n seconds to call someone after I dial the number).I've honestly almost smashed it on the ground twice it's so laggy.When I'm in a hurry, I can't stand it's lagginess.It's amazing to me this phone was released to the public with such an egregious lag time on almost everything I do (most noticeably the phone, which is simple compared to other apps).
For some reason, whenever I send out an email to someone that's not in my contact list, it appears as a new contact under the people app, with the email address listed. I don't want it to automatically add these emails to my contacts. Is there a way I can stop this, besides un-syncing my Gmail account?
I am using the HTC mail app, to get emails from a Gmail account, which gets messages from a POP3 account. In Gmail online, I can send all messages as being sent from the Pop3 account. I cannot figure out how to do this with the HTC mail account, which makes it pretty useless. Anyone else using HTC mail and receiving and sending from different accounts? I've tried changing the outgoing server stuff, but I keep getting failed message sent errors.
I cannot send an email with an attachment using the Gmail app on this phone. I tried to send three different photographs to three different email addresses and it failed every time. Emails without attachments go perfectly every time.
I installed Petes Bugless rom and It was a little too buggy for me so I went back to my nandroid backup. Everything is fine except for my Gmail will not send an email. It will receive just fine but will not send. It just says sending... I have tried to send myself emails to my other accounts and receive nothing. I can send email with my .Mac email on my Droid though. I tried to delete my account and re-install and it won't let me because its my main one. It says I have to wipe my data first and I really don't want to do that.
My phone has been trying to send an email from gmail for 2 days. it keeps saying unable to send and I don't know how to stop it. If I click on it, it takes me to the edit email account screen. When I go through the steps it says authentication failed even though my gmail account is fine. I don't know how to fix this. Also when I go to all programs I have 2 internet, 2 maps, and 2 navigator icons that weren't there before and won't delete.
For the past 2-3 days I haven't gotten any notifications from my phone saying I have new emails.So I signed into gmail from my computer and I did have a couple messages.I went into "My Accounts" and clicked sync now and they started to come in.I don't know what happened or what I did, but is there any way I can get it to sync by itself like it did before without my having to go to "my accounts" and click on sync now.Now for the sending problem.My sister sent me an email, and I was trying to send a reply back from my droidx and all it does is get stuck on "Send." and it never sends out.I tried to reply to another person and the same thing happened.I don't know what to do.I just got all my customizations the way I like so I will try anything before a factory reset.
just noticed that when i read my gmail from the phone, it doesn't mark it off as read when i check on the computer. also when i try to reply or send an email, it is just stuck there with a red "sending". anyone have any idea what is going on?
I want to send an e-mail, and so I use the typical intent --
When I do this, the chooser comes up and gives all kinds of choices, for anything that can handle text/plain i assume, because there's stuff in there that doesn't support "e-mail". How can I make it so that it will only show applications that support email (gmail, mail, yahoo mail, etc...) and not stuff like "Bluetooth", "Facebook", etc...
I got the solution of get back to the first activity by pressing previous button without changing data of first activity. Now, the user will enter his credentials. When he click to proceed further, the credential details will directly go to the server and server gives response with the cookie and that cookies should be store in my phone for the usage for the future. It means that when the user again run the application he should directly logged in into the application, e.g., www.mail.yahoo.com.

Can someone tell me if there are differences between using a Gmail email account on my android phone vs. using another email (ie hotmail). Also if there are, what are the differences? You can probably tell I'm new to Android.
We were talking about this the other day and it has happen to me a few times today and has pissed me off so I got on with moto chat. they want to replace the phone for this.Not sure that I want to go this route as I just don't think thats the issue.Denise C: Hi, my name is Denise C. How may I help you? Nicholas : hey about twice a day my droid will refuse to send email/sms/mms unless I restart it, once restarted it kicks the messages right out Nicholas : I've even tried disconnecting/reconnecting to the wireless enter and exit airplane mode, only thing that will get it working again is to restart it Denise C: I am sorry to hear that. I will be more than glad to assist you. Nicholas : I'm inside my 30 days but didn't know if I should contact you guys or verizon Denise C: Have you tried taking the battery out and put it back in to check if it was doing the same thing after that? Nicholas : tried that yesterday Nicholas : same effect as restarting, works for a few hours then I run into the issue again.
Is it possible to use the stock email client that comes on the phone to send and receive my school emails? I login on my computer through windows live and the ending to my email is @mail.mizzou.edu. I already tried to set it up on the phone once but i get error messages.
What is the difference in the "Email" and the "Gmail" app on the phone. Wich one should i set up my email with. I use gmail for both of my email accounts. Right now both of my account are showing up under the gmail app, but when i click on email only one shows up. Am i missing something here? How is the best way to set up my email?Also, i do not think my phone is vibrating if i have my email sent straight to a label in my gmail account. Is it supposed to be this way? is there anyway to change it so it will still alert me?
Is it possible to send a business card via email or text message on the X10. At the moment I'm only able to send it via bluetooth, which is annoying cause the person who I need to send it to is 40 miles away.
I want is to automatically compose an e-mail with a subject line, recipient address and an image attachment, and an e-mail app should then pop up with this automatically composed message, to let the user decide whether to send, edit or discard the message.
I have searched and haven't been able to find any threads with one of my issues, so I apologize in advance if I missed one. Anyways, my DX has been working flawlessly since I got it back on 10/6. Sunday, 10/31, my DX quit syncing just my corporate Exchange 2003 emails, then yesterday it started not sending emails as well and now, this morning, it quit syncing my personal email. Corporate email will sync manually, just not push. I have rebooted several times, pulled the battery several times, and also deleted both my Exchange account and my personal account and re-added both and the problem still persists. I don't have any task killer apps installed and haven't recently added any apps since the issues started. Anyone have an idea what may be causing the lack of push (in and out) on both of my accounts?
