Droid Bionic: Configure a Web-Based E-Mail Account

You need to configure the Droid Bionic to access any non-Gmail e-mail account. The process is easy for web-based e-mail accounts such as Yahoo! Mail; follow through with these steps to get things set up:

  1. Start the My Accounts app.

    The My Accounts app is found on the App menu, which you access by touching the Launcher button to the lower right of the Home screen.

  2. Touch the Add Account button.

  3. If your account type is shown in the list, such as Yahoo! Mail, choose it. Otherwise, choose the Email icon.

    You may be prompted to accept the Motorola agreement. Touch the box to place a green check mark by the “I agree”option, and then touch the Next button.

  4. Type the account’s e-mail address.

  5. Type the password for the account.

    If you’re using the onscreen keyboard, touch the Done button to dismiss the onscreen keyboard.

  6. If you see the option Automatically Configure Account, ensure that a green check mark appears next to it.

  7. Touch the Next button.

    In a few magical moments, the e-mail account is configured and added to the account list.

    If you goofed up the account name or password, you’re warned: Try again.

  8. Touch the Done button.

    The account is added to the list on the My Accounts screen.

You can repeat the steps to add more web-based e-mail accounts.
