Carrier list

The following article shows how to set up an email account on your Kindle Fire tablet. Each tablet can be set up to view a single or multiple email accounts using the POP3 or IMAP protocol available with your InMotion Hosting account. Like any good email client, you can use either secure or non-secure settings. The tutorial will explain these settings and display the options that you can select.

Setting up email for Kindle Fire Tablets

  1. Carrier list

    Power on your Kindle, then go to your apps and look for the Email icon. Click on the email icon (which looks like an envelope with a letter sticking out of it) to start the set up process.

  2. Type in your account email address

    If you are setting it up for the first time, then you will be requested to type in the email address of the account you're trying to set up. If there is an account already setup, then you will be launching the email application. Type in the email address, then click on the NEXT button or DONE button.

  3. You will then need to type in the email password. Click NEXT to proceed.

  4. Choose email protocol

    The next step in adding an account will require you to determine if you're using a POP3, IMAP or Exchange account. If you're using email from your InMotion Hosting account then you should only choose either POP3 or IMAP. To learn more about the difference between POP3 and IMAP please go to How email works. Click on the email protocol that you wish to use.

  5. Choose email protocol

    Immediately below where you have chosen either POP3 or IMAP you will see the blank field for the name of the server. Type in the name of the incoming mail server. If you need help finding this setting, please go to how to find your email settings. By default, typical server accounts for InMotion Hosting servers usually follow this format: mail.domain_name.com . You would replace "domain_name.com" with the name of the domain where your email is set up.

  6. Choose email protocol

    Click NEXT in order to proceed. Note that you may see a screen that shows a message that states "Checking server settings...". You can click on the CANCEL button to cancel the check at this point.

  7. SMTP server settings

    Click on NEXT to advance through the different settings for the email account. The next blank is SERVER FOLDER. You can leave this entry blank. If you click NEXT again, you will be filling in the SMTP server setting under Outgoing Server settings. The typical format for the outgoing server/SMTP server name will look exactly like the incoming server name:


    mail.domain_name.com


    For more information on determining your email server settings, please go to How to find your email settings.

  8. Security Settings

    When you are on the Outgoing Server Settings screen, there is a section labeled Security Settings and Ports. Click on this section to open the screen. Email settings generally come in two forms - secured and non-secured. By default, the secure settings are checked.

    Here are examples of server names used by InMotion Hosting accounts:

    biz##.inmotionhosting.com

    ecbiz##.inmotionhosting.com

    Note:To find your server name, please see Viewing your Account Technical Information in AMP.

    Here's a list of typical email port settings:

    SecureNon-Secure

    Incoming

    IMAP port = 993

    POP3 port = 995

    Incoming

    IMAP port = 143

    POP3 port = 110

    Outgoing

    SMTP port = 465

    Outgoing

    SMTP port= 587


    If you check the "Use secure connection (SSL)", then the port will change to 465. Select the settings you wish to use.

  9. When you have completed choosing your Security settings, click on SAVE.

Setup complete!

Once the settings are saved the tablet will attempt to connect to the email server to confirm your settings. you'll see the "Setup complete!" screen. You can also add another email account at this point.
