Add Basic Email Account to HTC One M8
Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to add an email account to an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen, we will see several icons
We now need to find the Settings menu, and to do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down.
To open the Notification panel, start at the top of the screen, and swipe downwards
Now, we can see that the Notification panel has appeared
We are looking for the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen
It is a white cog icon. This is our Settings icon.
Press down on this icon, and it will open up the "Settings" menu
It says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Now, let's scroll down to the "PERSONAL" section, as indicated by the word "PERSONAL" in the gray bar
In this section, we are looking for the second option, which says "Accounts & sync"
Next to these words is an icon of a gray circle with two arrows curling around it.
Press down on this option, and it will take us into that menu
We are going to demonstrate how to add an email account to the HTC One M8.
Press the white plus sign at the top of the screen
It is located in the black area and is the second icon from the right corner. Then it will allow us to add an account.
Since we want to add an email account, we need to choose "Mail"
Next to the word "Mail" is an icon of an envelope. Press down on that option.
Now, we have the option to add an account
We first need to type in an email address, so do that using the keyboard
Press down on the "Password" text box to enter in a password
Once we've done that, we can press the word "NEXT" at the bottom right corner
A message will appear that says, "CHECKING ACCOUNT SETTINGS..."
Now, we have the option to change the "ACCOUNT NAME" if desired
However, this is not necessary.
Since we're happy with everything, we're going to press "FINISH SETUP" at the bottom right in the gray bar
Now, we have successfully added our email account to this HTC One M8.
As we can see, we have a notification at the top left corner of the screen, which is indicated by an envelope
If we swipe down the Notification panel, we can see that it is showing us we have "1 new email", and it shows the email address of the account we just added
It has synced our email account with the HTC One M8. When we receive emails to that account, we'll be able to receive notifications directly to our phone. We can also directly access that new email account as well by just pressing down either on the notification, or by entering the Mail application as well.
This concludes our tutorial on how to add an email account to an HTC One M8
