After you have created an email address in our control panel, you can send and receive emails using your Android phone. Please note that not all Android phone setting structures are the same, so your phone settings might be a little different. In these instructions we have used the Gmail provided by Android.

Setting up the email account

1. Open your email program and choose settings.
2. Click “Add account”.

3. Choose “Other”

4. Write your whole email address and click “Manual setup”.
Click “Next”.

5. Choose “Personal (IMAP)”.

6. Fill in the password and click “Next”.

7. Fill in the correct hostname for incoming email. It should be mailX.hostingpalvelu.fi. X is the number of the server, where your account is located. You’ll find the correct information from your client area, from our customer service or from the “Hosting account’s information” message that has been sent to you.
