Access via IMAP from Android based devices
Posted by Rebecca Rommelrath on 10 Jul 2020 11:31


To allow access to the MailStore archive using the email client of the Android based device, the MailStore Server-integrated IMAP server must be activated and configured. This procedure is described in chapter MailStore Server Service Configuration.

Adding an Email Account

Due to many manufacturer modified Android versions, adding an email account differs from Android based device to another. Therefore you only find a short overview of the required parameters here.

Settings for Incoming Email

  • Type: IMAP
  • Username: Your MailStore user name.
  • Password: Your MailStore password.
  • IMAP server: IP address or DNS host name of your MailStore Server
  • Port: By default, MailStore uses port 143. If you have changed this setting in the MailStore Server Service Configuration, please enter the appropriate port instead. For Security Type: SSL (Accept all certificates) the default port is 993.
  • Security type: Choose between None and TLS (Accept all certificates). Depending on the configuration of the MailStore IMAP server, you can also choose SSL (Accept all certificates).

Settings for Outgoing Email

For the outgoing mail server, enter the same settings as when sending mail using your regular email account. MailStore Server does not provide its own SMTP server and cannot serve as outgoing mail server
