Forme A37

How to configure mail in a Forme A37

All Forme devices with the Android 7.0 operating system come by default with an email application with which you can both receive and send email messages.

Before starting the email setup on your A37 make sure you have the following information:

  • Email address (example@gmail.com)
  • Password.
  • In the event that it is not a Hotmail, iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, Yahoo, Aol, Office 365 or Outlook account, you must know if it is a POP or IMAP account and both the incoming and outgoing servers.

Estimated time: 10 minutes.

1- First step:

Find and open the mail application on your A37, normally devices with Android 7.0 operating system come with the Gmail application installed, you can use the Gmail App to configure your mail, regardless of the provider, even if it is a company email with a domain of its own. If you can not find it on the home screen, drag the screen to the left or right until you find it, if it does not appear, access the Forme A37. Your Forme must come from the factory with a mail app otherwise go to Play Store, search and download Gmail, Outlook or Blue mail.

8- Eighth step:

Select the type of account you want to configure in your Forme A37, IMAP or POP.

What differentiates an IMAP account from a POP or POP3?
When you set up an IMAP account in your A37 you keep a copy of the emails in the cloud, that is, in the mail server.

If you delete an email or move it from a folder in your Forme A37 that change will also occur on the server and therefore on all devices that are configured with the same email account.

On the other hand, if you set your Forme with a POP or POP3 account, the emails are downloaded to the device and can be deleted, read or changed without affecting the other devices that have the same email account.

Usually this configuration is used for shared accounts in which several people want to keep the emails that have been read by others as NOT read or for those who have the email in the mobile and on the computer and do not want the changes to be reflected in the other device.

12- Final step:

Now we configure the synchronization options of the email account, we choose how often we want the A37 to check if there are new emails to download. We can choose if we want to receive a notification every time an e-mail is received. Check the option "Synchronize mail from this account" if you want them to be synchronized automatically, if you uncheck it you will have to access the mail application and update to receive the e-mails. Choose if you want attachments to be downloaded automatically when connected to a Wi-Fi network. If you want to save battery and mobile data on your rate, uncheck all these options.

13- Final step:

Finally, you can give a name to this email account that we have just configured in the A37, the name of the account may be different from the email address. Type the name you want to appear on messages sent from this account.
