IMAP emails are accessible anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection and access to your webmail server. It allows you to have a view of your messages whether you are focused on a meeting on your computer, or if you are simply having a quick cup of coffee and on your mobile.


Since IMAP emails are stored on a single server only, one of the downsides is the limited storage that your email host provides.If you would like having a POP set up instead, we can show you how to do that here.


Now, on to IMAP email linking to your Android phone:

  3. Click on Add account.

    Next, click on Other.

  4. Enter your IMAP email address on this screen, then click Next.
