  1. On your Android's home screen, select Apps.

     

    Android Apps Selection
    Android Apps Selection

  2. On the Apps screen, select your device's native Email application.
  3.

  4. If you do not have another account configured already, you will be prompted to enter your username and password, then select Manual setup. Keep in mind that your username is your full business email address, for example "john@yourdomain.com".
