WiscMail / WiscMail Plus (Android) - Configure Email Application

CAUTION: This document includes instructions for both IMAP and POP, but we recommend using IMAP. By default, POP will delete messages from the server as you download them. There is consequently a risk of losing all of your email if your hard drive fails. The WiscMail team recommmends you set up your email client with IMAP instead. Please see WiscMail - Differences between POP, IMAP, and WebMail for more information about POP vs. IMAP.

Note: POP access has been disabled for some accounts to prevent messages from being unintentionally removed from our server. If you want to configure your account for POP, you may need to enable POP access. Click here for instructions.

WiscMail & WiscCal only
NOTE: This document is only applicable to WiscMail / WiscCal . If your account has been migrated to Office 365, please search the Office 365 KnowledgeBase for help. More information about the transition to Office 365 is available here.

Note(s):

  • Users have also referenced the following email client for Android devices: K9 Mail
  • Important: WiscMail requires a secure connection. Some devices (depending on the version provided by the device vendor) are unable to connect via SSL. These clients will not work with WiscMail. K9 Mail is a functional replacement.
  • Some of these settings may vary by device and version of Android.
