I have a Nexus 10 tablet and would like to know how to set it up so that I can access my emails. Somehow I must have set it up for Google Gmail which is of no use to me.
thanks

If you don't use Gmail aren't you able to input it manually?

Android has 2 email apps, gmail and email. Use the email app for all non-gmail email accounts. However, my preferred method is to use gmail to import my email from other accounts. This is easy to setup on a PC. There are lots of reasons to use gmail this way and far too many to mention, but here are a few. Easy to archive all email, search engine, push email, spam filter.

When I have tried to input it manually I keep getting the message that it is not accepted.

Check what you're typing very carefully:

Incoming mail server settings:

  • Host name: imap.mail.yahoo.com
  • Username: your full Yahoo or BT Internet email address
  • Password: your email account password
Outgoing mail server settings:

  • Host name: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Username: your full Yahoo or BT Internet email address
  • Password: your email account password

Are you entering the correct details (username and password) and remembering upper/lowercase letters?

The problem I am having is this...
When I open email account setup on my nexus10 I first put in my sky email address ...ok, then the password I use for my Sky account ... ok, then press manual setup and press IMAP. In my username I enter my email address again, then the same password again, then I am stuck as what to enter as 'Imap Server' as nothing seems to be acceptable. Security Type I leave as 'none'. When I press next I get a message that it 'couldn't finish' as couldn't open connection to server. Need help please.

Thanks for all your advice. I have managed to sort it by downloading the yahoo mail app and it takes me straight into my email page.
