Android Email Setup Tutorial and Settings

One of the main reasons people are getting a smart phone of some kind is for access to email. Whether it is for work or personal, having the ability to see an important email is a must have for busy people. Seeing an email from your child’s teacher or getting the updated meeting details while you are traveling to the meeting right away saves a lot of headaches later on.

Below is a video walking you through how to set up a basic email account on an Android device and some commonly used email providers.
