Re: setting up email help

1) This suggestion from Mellissa19 on another thread might help:

 

Go to settings, all settings, applications, contacts, and import your contacts. Then they should show up in your email. There is also a co tacts app where you will see your contacts and manage them.

 

 

2) I had some people mention they set up their Google account using IMAP instead of POP and that fixed the Calendar and Contacts Part too.

Re: setting up email help

You have to check with your company's IT department and get settings. There might be a specific set of settings that are required. can you take it in and have them set it up for you?

 

Also, are you trying IMAP format or POP?

Re: setting up email help

The odds are good that they may not permit access for security reasons. This is why the Blacberry was so favored -- the Blackberry Enterprise Server software uses a high level encryption system when transferring email, and likely ties the encryption to a particular device. Other companies may only allow access through a VPN (which is also encrypted, using a number sequence one has to read off a "token", number changes every ten to fifteen seconds and the token is linked to your account).

Re: setting up email help

Good point Wulfraed.

 

Of the last two companies I worked at - neither had email you could access via stuff like phones. With Android based tablets there are even more security concerns because there's lots of Android malware on Android Tablets and Phones (due to the open nature of the store).

 

You might have to check if they have some web based secure mail server you can use with the in-built browser or one of the other browsers (Dolphin, Penguin, Maxthon).
