Setup of Mail (Droid/Android OS)

Please note: CTS can only assist in the configuration of your Droid/Android OS if it has been funded in part with a stipend from SUNY Potsdam.

CTS recommends the K9 Mail client for use with your device. It is the email client that CTS configures by default and is the most compatible with our email system. Follow the instructions below for downloading and configuring the K9 Mail client.
