Android Problem Adding Email Account: Server connection error



To solve this problem we need to Add new Google account first
then we can now add new Email account.



NOTE: This tutorial is specifically meant for adding Gmail account ONLY.

ex: myname@gmail.com

Other email provider like yahoo, Hotmail, etc., cannot solve the same problem with this kind of method that we are going to follow.




1st FIRST: Add Google Account



Go to Settings Accounts & sync















 Add account
















 Choose Google
















 Draw the unlock pattern

































Type your Email or Phone
then tap NEXT
















Input your Password
then tap NEXT















tap ACCEPT button below
















wait...
















Set up payment info
To make the setup faster,
just hit No thanks on the choices
then tap CONTINUE at the bottom.













Once done, you will be directed to Account & sync window

There are two ways to add email account.

1. By adding email at Account & sync
2. By adding email at Email app


I encountered error when adding email account using the first method (Account & sync) even after I already added the Google account.

So the best way to add the Email Account is option two (using Email App)




2nd SECOND: Adding Email Account

Find the Email icon on the list of your apps
















Add account
















 Take note of the POP3

















Once you type your google email address
You may notice that the POP3 will automatically change into
IMAP(DEFAULT)
Leave it as it is.

Type your password then tap Sign in










 You can leave everything as it is

or you can change your Nickname and Inbox sync frequency
as you want.

You may also wanted to Automatically download attachments when connected to Wi-Fi


Then tap Done.







That's it!

Your inbox is now synchronizing.
