Android :: Unable To Add Secondary Email Account To My Phone
Oct 8, 2010
Otherwise loving my new Samsung Epic - but how could the Android email client (a google product) integrate so poorly with Gmail My 3 GIANT issues : 1- The native email client does not observe who an email was sent to when responding like the gmail web client can. If I have secondary emails on my account it will not allow response as them. 2- unlike the gmail web client, I can't select what secondary account to respond with. 3 - I am unable to add secondary email account to my android phone. requires authentication using primary and It only adds them as the primary. Google really dropped the ball big on this and from what I've heard, Froyo nor the new Android gmail client (which I'd rather not use since I also have non gmail account for work) did not address this either. I figure it' s either a huge technical obstacle (which I doubt), or not much testing went into the email application.
I have two gmail accounts on my droid, but since adding the second one, notifications don't work properly. The second was really just for conveniance sake of checking the account of a activity club I belong to, but I don't need it if it means not getting the notifications for the my primary account.
While adding additional accounts is easy as pie, I cannot for the life of me find a way to remove one once it is on there.
just got my desire this morning and i don't really know what i'm doing with it, i've never had a smart phone before. i've set up my hotmail account as the email account on the phone but, call me paranoid, i'd rather not have it on there at all. if i delete the account on the phone will it have any detremental effect on the actual email account?
I originally setup my Droid with my Google Apps account as primary. A few months ago I decided to buy a paid app in the Market and couldn't do so using my Google Apps account. Reluctantly, I added my Google Account as a secondary account on my phone, which allowed me to purchase apps in the Market. Now that I can finally use Google Checkout with my Google Apps account, I would like to remove my Google Account from my phone, since I'm tired of being prompted to select an account each time I create a new contact. Will removing my secondary account affect apps that are already installed? What about when updates become available for these apps in the Market?
I am trying to set up a Pop account on my Inc. but it fails every time. I used the same settings on a Moto Droid and it worked. The Verizon rep tested it on his phones and it also worked on the Moto Droid but not his Incredible. Spent an hour on the phone with HTC and their only answer is a hard reset - which is bullshit because it doesn't work on 2 different incredibles.
how do i add a a new email account? I'm trying to add my iinet account but don't know what details I need to enter where: What protocol do I need? POP, APOP, IMAP what should my pop server be do I need a security type what server port should I enter
My phone is still trying to send an email and keeps giving me an error that the account setting is incorrect. I've tried everything and took everyone's suggestions. I'm trying to avoid a resetting the phone.
I recently rooted, and unlocked the bootloader on my atrix hd (ATT)
Since then I tried installing cm10.1 multiple times on the secondary "Rom slots" within the bootloader, without any success. So I finally decided to go for it and install cm10.1 in the "stock rom" slot, Prior to doing this I did a back-up using Rom manager. Aand now I seemingly can't even boot into recovery mode, every time I restart my device it simply goes to the cyanogenmod blue ring thingy and gets stuck! (I have left it for 15-20 mins thinking it might be some kind of installation process..) I have both windows 8 and Ubuntu installed on my pc, just saying.i've even tried holding down all three physical buttons and it simply takes me back to the same screen!!!
I've set up an email account on my mini pro (NOT gmail or exchange) and it all works fine updating my inbox manually , however, I cant find any settings to automatically retrieve my emails periodically ( as far I can see auto sync refers to gmail or sony sync or road sync for exchange). Is there any way to auto sync an individual email account ?
I've had my Captivate since the 19th of July and have been pretty happy with it but today my email accounts disappeared from my phone.I've been using the email app that came with the phone without issues but today my personal gmail and my work exchange accounts vanished. I noticed I hadn't received a new email notification in several hours so I went to check my email it prompted me to setup an email account. Anyone else have this happen? I only have 2 days to return my Captivate, it's been a good phone so far but I cant afford to lose my email accounts for no apparent reason again. I haven't installed any new apps or made any changes to the phone.Coming from the Blackberry world I took it for granted that email just worked flawlessly.
Had my Legend for about a month and a half now and I've started getting 'low phone memory' errors. Looked in the memory lists and it says the only 'biggies' are maps at 4mb each (and there's 4 of them?) and 'HTC mail' at 116mb. I only have my hotmail account, texts, and Gmail and they're all empty. Not really got that many applications installed (4 or 5) and had to remove some just to get the phone to stop reminding me. I've emptied the drafts, trash and cache and it made little to no difference.
Is there a way to delete email from the droid but have it stay in my gmail account? I want it to be how the blackberry is set up were it gives you the option to delete out of both phone and gmail account or delete from phone and stay in gmail account.
Samsung Epic 4G under Sprint. I'm trying to add another Google account to my phone and it does not let me. Your phone needs to communicate with Google servers to setup you account. This may take up to five minutes. Then, Can't establish a reliable data connection to the Server. Is this still possible now that google sync is in effect? We are using this second account as a shared location for picasa pictures and google Videos.
But I'd also like to be able to check emails in the account, but not under my native email client on the samsung or even the gmail client - I want no notifications for these emails. Is there an Android market email client (pop or imap) with a separate icon that I could install on the phone for ondemand email? I've looked in the market and their ain't much out there.
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.
I am currently using a x10i (x10?) on tmobile, i have the data plan ($10), and have my email connected via gmail. however, it seems like i have to do manual refresh in order to get email update. Is this normal or is there automatic feature that i must enable to have it alert me once an email is received?
Secondly, is it possible to set-up a third party email account, ex: Yahoo? I went through the notion of manually enter email account, but was unsucessful. It give me a msg that mailbox access is not supported for some tpes of yahoo mail accounts. Could this be an interference with gmail email, thus causing the problem? Even, using the manually setup option, it still fails to connect to my yahoo account.
I've been searching and still cant get my school email account to work? First, is my incredible capable of having multiple email accounts attached to it like my blackberry had been? The emails i really need to get to work are one from comcast and the other from my school (university of pittsburgh).
I am trying to set up my email account with Virgin Media on my Desire but I can`t get the settings right, it`s a pop account, I can receive mail but I can`t send it. I`m with Three mobile but my phones unlocked, When I connect via wifi to my home it sends ok, but this seems a bit pointless when I`m away from home.
I remembered from my G1 days a way to sync the E-Mail app up to Yahoo's free (not PoP3) servers so I gave it try on my new BH2 and it works just fine:Here are the steps: 1. Enter Yahoo ID and Password (hint, just use your "username", not the whole email@example.com 2. Select Manual Setup 3. Setup IMAP 4. Incoming server is imap.mail.yahoo.com 5. Port is 143 6. Security Type is "TLS (if available)" 7. Leave IMAP path prefix blank 8. Hit next 9. SMTP Server is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com 10. Port is 25 11. Security is again TLS (if available) 12. Check Require sign-in 13. Verify username and password 14. enjoy To Sync up, you CANNOT be on WiFi (dunno why, maybe Yahoo has a deal with T-Mobile?).One other note: if after rechecking all your settings and it still says "invalid username/password" try going onto your Yahoo Account and change your "Location" to ASIA ! Weird I know, but for some reason, some people can't get this to work with US-English as their Yahoo Locale (not talking about your phone's settings here, all on Yahoo site end!).
I am using K-9 Mail and have 12 email accounts in it. I need to delete 7 of the accounts as I am now ceasing a lot of my email addresses. I have spent ages searching within K-9 (Android) on my HTC Desire, but cannot find any way to delete the accounts.
I am writing an app and I want to send the user a welcome email when they install the app, in order to do this I could prompt them to enter their email address, but I would prefer to just detect the email of their account on the phone and send it without forcing them to type.
I need an email app that Works preferably for my G1 phone. I need it for university and my job, however I can not for the life of me, after a week of trying to get the email app that came on the phone to work it will not work. I took the phone to the IT department if my university after I followed their instructions online for setting the email account up on the phone and every time I got to outgoing server settings the app force closed. The IT guy couldn't get it to work either.
I tried it a few times at home before it just sat for an hour trying to do something or other before my phone crashed and it turned itself off. I had a panic attack and thought I had broken it but alas my phone loves me too much to do that to me. So are there any other apps out there that are worth while for IMAP email (I do know its IMAP no idea what IMAP is =) that I can use with my G1 that I wont have to kill to get it to work?
My gmail account was easy to set up, and by going into options/settings I can edit my signature. But the option for editing/adding a signature on a none-gmail account is nowhere to be seen. What gives?
I want to get the email address of the Google account tied to the phone (the one the user enters upon setup). I need it to uniquely identify the user of my app - however I do not want their password as it would, understandably, scare most users away from using the app. So I need a way of getting the email address without having to include permissions that suggest I am accessing account info etc...
I added a hotmail account to my emails on my Moment,, and now I can't figure out how to delete the hotmail account. I spent 20 minutes on the phone today with Sprint, then I must have driven through a dead spot b/c just as they were going to help me the call was dropped from my end. Anyway, anyone with instructions on how to do this?
I successfully set up a couple of gmail accounts when I first got my phone and now wish to add a third. However the phone now says it is unable to establish a working data connection. This is definitely not the case. It comes up with this before checking the account credentials so it is not a password issue.
