How to Set Up E-Mail Automatically on Your NOOK Tablet

By Corey Sandler

Before you try to use the e-mail app on your NOOK Tablet, you have to set up an e-mail account with a provider (like Google for Gmail or your ISP). Once you have your username (email address) and password, launch and use the Email app, like this:

  1. Press the ∩ button to display the quick nav bar.

  2. Tap Apps.

  3. In the Apps window, tap Email and choose the automatic setup.

    You’re taken to the Inbox. If you haven’t visited the Email app yet, you’re taken to a screen so you can set it up.

  4. Type the address for your e-mail account.

  5. Enter the password for the account.

  6. (Optional) Tap the check box for Send E-mail from This Account by Default.

  7. Tap Next.

    The NOOK Tablet tries to connect. This will usually succeed if you’re using one of the common web-based services like Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo! Mail. You’re notified if all goes well; if not, you will see an error message. If you get an error message, try setting up manually.

  8. (Optional) Type a name for this account.

    A name can help you distinguish among multiple accounts. If you don’t want to name the account, leave the option blank.

  9. Enter your name as you want it to appear in e-mail messages that you send.

    Recipients see this name in the From field on their Email app.

  10. Click Done.
