How to get mails from your gmail acccount on your mobile phone

Updated on May 15, 2017

Setting on your mobile phone

Ever wondered yourself in a situation where you do not have your laptop or there is no cyber cafe nearby and you need to check an urgent email.

You can easily get the e-mails from your GMail account directly to your mobile phone provided that internet (GPRS) is activated. You can get GPRS activated on your mobile phone by contacting your service provider. There are plenty of plans available with these service providers in the market today.

The first thing you need to do right away is login to your GMail account and click on the 'Settings' menu. There you will find "Forwarding and POP " settings tab. From there choose "Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on." and save your changes. Now you are ready to make the required settings on your mobile phone.

Enable POP3

I will take the example of the mobile phone I use to enter the settings.

Phone: Sony Ericsson K790i

1. From the main menu choose Messaging.

2. In the messaging menu choose, Email and then Settings.

3. You will get an option 'New Account', which creates a new profile in your phone where you can configure the settings.

4. In the settings enter the following information:

a) Account Name: Can be any name you like, can be your nick name too.

b) Connect Using: This option should already be there in your mobile phone if your GPRS is activated. If not you need to contact your service provider.

c) Email Address: This is your gmail email address. e.g arun.udayan@gmail.com

d) Connection Type: Enter POP3 here.

e) Incoming Server: Enter pop.gmail.com

f) Username: This is again the user id you have been using to login to your gmail account. In my case it is arun.udayan

g) Password: This is the password you use to login to you gmail id.

e) Outgoing Server: Enter smtp.gmail.com here.

f) Advanced Settings: This option might be specific to the mobile phone I use and should be present in the other Sony ericsson models too. You need to find out the following options in your mobile phone yourself.

i) Encryption: Select SSL here.

ii) Outgoing username: is the same as Username as entered earlier.

iii) Outgoing Password: Is the same password you use to login to your gmail account,

iv) Incoming Port: Enter 995 here.

v) Outgoing Port: Enter 465 here.

Save all your changes before you exit the settings menu. So folks, enjoy g-mobile right there in your palms. Well these are just the settings to get the gmail only, you can get the mails from your other accounts like yahoo and rediff too if they also allow POP. You must try searching this info on this huge pool of knowledge- We call it as internet.

      Hi Zyon,

      Try giving your gmail address in there. If you have something like Incoming Server, try giving pop.gmail.com

      Also you need to enable POP from your gmail account online using the gmail settings menu.

      If you are still unable to configure it try downloading gmail for mobile from google's website or use Opera Mini Web browser. Believe me its a much convenient way.

      try giving smtp.gmail.com in the outgoing server.

      I am not sure if the server names have changed now cause I had written this long ago. Btw, you can now download gmail for mobile though it is a bit slow. the best is to use opera mini browser on you phone...

      I have 2 gmail accounts set up exactly the same, no problems receiving emails on either but can only send from one, the other started giving me the following message 2 days ago, any ideas?

      "The message(s) could not be sent. Check that you have network coverage and that your account information is correct. Then try sending again"

      Hi Rahul,

      Did you enable POP from GMAIL settings. Do it from your computer by logging into gmail.

      Also,

      This blog is quite old. Please see if the follwing link helps:

      I have an htc and use gmail as my inbox for emails. My htc and gmail account were synched and it worked well. My gmail was hacked in November and I have retreived my address book and email filing but cannot connect to my htc. This evening I removed the gmail account from my htc but was told I must reset to factory settings. I did this and have lost my phone 100+ phone numbers. I did not back up my SIM. I thought I would be able to reconnect with my gmail account but NO. What am I doing wrong and can I get my phone numbers back, please?

      Hi Amanda,

      Are you able to see the contacts in your gmail at least? I think that you cannot login to you gmail on your HTC using the same password that you use to login to gmail from the browser. Go to this link after logging into your gmail account in a browser on your pc or laptop:

      https://www.google.com/settings/security

      Click on the "settings" link in front of "App Passwords". Give your normal gmail password if asked to do so. Now generate an application specific password by giving some name in the text box. (I would write "My HTC phone" and click on the "Generate Password" button). A 16 alphabets password will be generated which you could use to login into google account on your h&c mobile. Let me know if that works.
