We show you how to setup IMAP and POP3 email on your Motorola DROID.

The following settings are for all Droid phone types.

Google is making strides in the smartphone marketplace and the recently released Motorola DROID is the first handset to feature Google's Android 2.0 OS. Android-based smartphones include two email clients, one for Gmail and one for other types of email servers including Microsoft Exchange, IMAP and POP3. The following guide will show you how to set up the built-in email application to access an IMAP or POP3 email server for incoming email and an SMTP server for outbound email. The setup for both IMAP and POP3 is the same so for the purposes of this guide, we will use POP3.

  • Tap the upward pointing arrow to get to the app menu (figure 1)
  • Tap on the Email icon (figure 2)

Email will begin synchronizing once the credentials and server information is entered correctly.

Once the setup has been completed, you are presented with a list of your messages. While viewing the message list, you are also able to change the settings that are assigned to this account by tapping the Menu icon -- which is directly to the left of the Home icon -- and then tapping Account settings. The following options are available:

  1. Account name
  2. Your name
  3. Email check frequency
  4. Default account (make the current account the default email account on your DROID)
  5. Email notifications
  6. Select Ringtone
  7. Vibrate
  8. Incoming settings (to modify IMAP or POP3 server settings)
  9. Outgoing settings (to modify SMTP server settings)

The menu icon also gives you more options which include refresh, compose, folders, accounts and account settings.
