    Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi - Email Set-up

    • Answer
    • Introduction

      The first time you open Email, you are prompted to set up an email account. After that, you can configure Email to send and receive email from additional accounts. The accounts that you configure are displayed in the Accounts screen.

      The Email setup wizard helps you set up your account for many popular email systems, including those based on IMAP and POP3, so you can read and work with the same email as you do on a computer in Thunderbird, Mac Mail, in a web browser, or with another email application. If your service provider requires additional settings, or if your service provider is unknown to Email, you can enter the necessary details manually, though you will typically need to contact your email service provider to determine the right settings for your account.


      Add an email account

      1. From the home screen, touch Apps   
      2. Touch Settings 
      3. Touch Accounts & Sync > Add account > Email
      In the Setup Email screen, enter your email address and password. If you’re adding a second or subsequent email address, you can also check the option to use the new account to send all outgoing messages.
      1. Touch Next. Or, if you need to enter email account settings the wizard can’t configure for you, touch Manual setup
      If you touch Next, Email attempts to communicate with your email service provider to validate your account for sending and receiving mail, using just your email address and password. This is sufficient for most email services.

      Depending on the service provider, you may be asked what kind of email account you have. If you’re not sure, check the settings in the application you use to send and receive email on your computer, or ask your email service provider.

      If the wizard determines that your service provider requires additional information, or if you touched Manual setup, you’re prompted to enter your email account details.

      The details you enter are different, depending on the email service type. Contact your email service provider for the values required for your account or click here for some common ISP email settings.
       
      1. Enter any other information requested by the type of account you’re adding and touch Done
      2. Enter a name for the account and touch Done
      Email starts downloading your email messages and you can start using it to send and receive messages using the new account.



      Delete an email account
      1. From the home screen, touch Apps   
      2. Touch Settings 
      3. Touch Accounts & Sync     
      4. Touch  the account you want to delete
      5. Touch Remove account


      Changing email account settings
      You can change the settings below for each email account when you create it or at any later time. These settings apply only to the account you’re working with. To change the settings for another email account, you must switch accounts.

      To change your Email account settings:
      1. From the home screen, touch Apps   
      2. Touch Settings 
      3. Touch Accounts & Sync  
      4. Touch  the account whose settings you want to change
      5. Touch Account settings
