This article describes how to set up the standard email client for android based devices for accessing a MailStore Server email archive using the IMAP protocol.

In addition to the MailStore Client software and MailStore Web Access, MailStore Server also provides access to the archive using an Android based device.
  
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 Server Service Configuration, please refer to the corresponding chapter in the [[MailStore Help|MailStore Server Manual]].

There are two ways to access the MailStore archive with your  Android based device:
  
== Setup of the IMAP Account on the Device ==
+
* Using an Email Client - By adding an additional email account you can access your MailStore archive just like any other email account.
  
* Start the application ''Email''.

* 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.  
* Press the ''Menu'' key and click on ''Accounts''.
 
* Press the ''Menu'' key and click on ''Add Account''.
 
* Enter your email address and your password. Your password is used to access MailStore Server.

** '''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)''.

* Please enter the following ''Outgoing server settings'':
 
*: Please enter the same settings as required for sending email using your regular email account. MailStore Server does not provide its own SMTP server and thus cannot be used as outgoing mail server.
