__NOTOC__
  
Since version 5.1, MailStore Server provides an integrated IMAP Server for accessing the archive that is independent of the operating system being used. For information about the setup and configuration of the integrated IMAP Server using the MailStore base configuration, please refer to the corresponding chapter in the [[Manual|MailStore Server Manual]].

In addition to the MailStore Client software and MailStore Web Access, MailStore Server also provides access to the archive using an Android based device.

In addition to the MailStore Client software and MailStore Web Access, MailStore Server also provides access to the archive using an Android based device.

There are two ways to access the MailStore archive with your Android based device:

  • Using an Email Client - By adding an additional email account you can access your MailStore archive just like any other email account.
  • Using a Web Browser - Using a web browser, navigate to MailStore Mobile Web Access to access your MailStore archive. No further configuration of your Android based device is needed.

Using the Email Client

Prerequisites

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.
