    AKO webmail setup on Droid Bionic

    Each model's email settings look a little different, so I thought I'd post this for Bionic specifically. Also, looking at past threads for other models, settings don't always work the same for everyone, so no guarantees here. BUT... I successfully set up AKO webmail on my Bionic's native email app (not K9 or anything) using the following settings:

    Incoming Server-->
    (from the dropdown on top): IMAP mail server
    Server: imap.us.army.mil
    Username: first.last (without "@us.army.mil")
    Password: password
    Advanced Settings-->
    Port: 993
    Use secure connection: CHECKED
    Use secure password (TLS): Auto
    Verify Certificate: UNCHECKED

    Outgoing Server-->
    SMTP server: mailrouter.us.army.mil
    Username: first.last (without "@us.army.mil")
    Password: password
    Advanced Settings-->
    Port: 465
    Use secure connection: CHECKED
    Use secure password (TLS): Auto
    Authentication: Auto
    Verify Certificate: UNCHECKED

    Hope that helps some people out there. Good luck.

    elcapitan,

    Thanks for the info man! One minor correction: For Port under the Outgoing settings, it should be set to 465 (not 9465). Other than that, it works like a charm again - was running into problems when I kept @us.army.mil in there.

    Does anyone know if the requirement for CAC logon will impact using your phone to read AKO email?

    No, it won't. I use a CAC at work to check AKO and my phone to check it at home.

    This set up worked perfect for me until my password expired. I updated it with the new one and it shows up with errors. Tried deleting the email and setting up a new one with the updated password and its still coming up with a connection error. Any ideas what could be causing this?

    I've been getting connection errors all weekend and my password hasn't changed. I think the AKO server isn't working correctly right now. Should be fixed by tomorrow.
