If your email is hosted with Web Hosting Hub, you can check it on your Android phone. With Android phones, many different email clients are available to check your email.  When you first begin using your Android phone, it will ask you to add your gmail account. To receive email with your Android, you can add your website email to your Gmail account. Then when you check your gmail you will automatically check your website email as well. For more information, check out our article on accessing your website email through Gmail. With this method you are unable to send email from your website email, only from your Gmail.

You can also add your website email as a separate account on your Android phone.  This will allow you to send and receive email from your website email address.  We will go over the basic information in this article, but your phone's email client may be slightly different. These steps were written with the HTC Incredible, using the default email client.

Please note, since this is a mobile device, IMAP connection is recommended so taht emails are not stored only on your phone.

  1. Click on the Mail icon on the front screen of your phone.
  2. On the Mail screen, click on New account
  3. Select Manual setup
  4. Next we will fill in your incoming server settings:
    Incoming Email Server Settings
    Email Address Enter in your full email address, for example This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
    Username Put in your full email address again
    Password Enter in the password for your email address.  It will not necessarily be the same as your cPanel password.
    POP or IMAP Server The default incoming mail server will be mail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name). 
    If you want to use an SSL connection for email, use secure##.webhostinghub.com (replace ## with your server number). If you need more information on finding your server number, please see our article How do I find what server I am on?
    Security Type If you're using the default mail server, keep this as None (default). If you are using an SSL connection, change this to SSL.
    Server Port For POP3: 110 for non-SSL and 995 for SSL
    For IMAP: 143 for non-SSL and port 993 for SSL
  5. Once you have put in your information, click "Next".
  6. Now we will fill in your outgoing server settings:
    Outgoing Email Server Settings
    SMTP Server The default outgoing mail server will be mail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name).
    If you want to use an SSL connection for email, use secure##.webhostinghub.com (replace ## with your server number). If you need more information on finding your server number, please see our article How do I find what server I am on?
    Security Type If you're using the default mail server, keep this as None (default). If you are using an SSL connection, change this to SSL.
    Server Port 587 for non-SSL
    465 for SSL
  7. Click Next.  On the final screen you can name the account what you want.  You may choose "work email" or just use the actual email address. You will also get an option to choose if this is your default email account.  Once you are done, click Finish setup.
  8. That's it!  Your email is now set up on your Android cell phone.

Hello Linda,

Without seeing the full settings I am unable to determine the issue you are having. You may want to walk through the settings with our Live Support team so they can help you specifically.

Kindest Regards,

Hello there, my issue of sync my outlook is still unresolved.  I followed all instructions given but to no avail. As per Scott's advice, I contacted live support team and they couldn't help. Aren't there really no one could help? 

How do I find out my password for my outlook. I just want to confirm that the password used to set up my email on phone is correct.  I went to check on cpanel but can't find.

Hello Linda,

The way I see the issue is that you are using a GS4 phone and trying to connect to an outlook email account. Is that correct?

To check your Outlook password, simply try to log in at outlook.com. If it works, then that is the same password you would need for the setting in the phone. Outlook.com has a password reset function if you need to do that as well. You may just need to remember a secondary email address you used to gain access to it.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
