Configuring Android Tablet for HawkMail
|Touch the "Settings...."|
|Touch "Accounts and sync."|
Then touch "Next."
|The device will attempt (and fail)
to connect to the email server.
When it does, a "Server settings" screen will appear -- with both the "Domain\Username" and "Server" fields displayed incorrectly:
|Correct the settings as follows:
... and then click "Next."
|The device will collect more settings from the server... wait for it to complete (don't Cancel).|
|Adroid will briefly inform you
that ActiveSync will control some security settings (it
will display more detail later).
|The "Account options"
screen will appear. You may elect to have Android mail
use your HawkMail account as the default when sending
messages by checking "Send email from this account
by default." You also have the option of having
various apps synchronized with the University of Hartford
server. Leave "email" turned on, but turn off
any apps (Contacts, Calendar) that you don't want or don't
use (the fewer things you synchronize, the faster your
mail updates will work, and the less "air time"
you'll use on your data plan, if applicable).
Recommendations (see explanation below):
|Android will again warn you of
ActiveSync's ability to control settings on the device (University
of Hartford does not plan to enforce any such
|Give the account a name to help
you distinguish it from others on your device.
|You should now see your HawkMail
email account appear in the "Accounts & sync"
Touch the "Home" icon to leave the setup screen.
|Suggested: Send yourself a test message to ensure that you can send and receive email.|
