Some of the most well-known websites are www.gmail.com, www.outlook.com, and www.yahoo.co.uk. Follow the site’s instructions and make a note of your password. We recommend that you include letters, numbers, and symbols in your password to make it difficult to guess.
If you already have an email account but have forgotten your password, log out and click on the ‘Forgot Password?’ link. You will be prompted to create a new password as a result of this. Make a note of it before proceeding to install email on your Android device.

You can also choose whether or not you want to be notified when new mail arrives. When you’re satisfied with your settings, click ‘Next.’

Step 6: Third-party email applications
The Outlook app works with a variety of email providers rather than just Microsoft, and it includes a lot of Cloud storage as well as an integrated calendar.
Gmail’s app is free as well, but it only works with Gmail. However, if you have a Gmail account, you will find it extremely useful due to its excellent search feature, simple interface, and ability to insert Google Drive documents.

It supports all of the major email providers and includes a number of powerful features such as the ability to attach files from Box or Dropbox, swiping for a variety of tasks such as archiving, deleting, or marking, a ‘like’ function to send a read receipt, customizable signatures, and Evernote integration.
