Setup POP3 with Android

Depending on the Android distribution used, the procedure for setting up your eclipso account on your Android Smartphone varies. You can use the example of the Android version we use as a guide when setting up POP3 and SMTP.

POP3 is suitable for anyone who wants to download unsorted e-mails from our servers and sort them themselves.

If you want to pre-sort incoming e-mails in your eclipso mailbox, we recommend that you change the account type so that you can use IMAP. With IMAP you synchronize your e-mails to all devices and thus have the same status everywhere.
