How do I download photos from my Samsung Galaxy S3 to my Gmail Account?

I want to download my photos to Gmail from my Galaxy S3.

You just need to sync your phone and all images with your Google Account. Your photos and images will be saved if you include them in the sync. As an alternate option, you can use the Google+ Instant Upload feature to download all of your photos to your Google+ Account. In this case, just make sure to set it to only upload when the phone is charging. That way your photos will upload at night while you're sleeping, and your phone is charging.

How do I delete my AOL account from the Samsung Galaxy S3?

I am having problems receiving emails to my phone. I tried deleting my email account and then reading mail, but it won't let me delete my account.

Go into your Settings and click Sync. AOL has to be manually set up to Sync usually. If you still want to delete the app, delete in the Applications Manager and then reboot your phone. Some people have to put the phone in Recovery Mode and then wipe the cache partition to completely remove the app.

I can't send or receive send email on my S3?

I may have inadvertently done something with my Samsung Galaxy phone because I no longer receive or have the ability to send email.

Sync is turned off in Settings. Heads up, for some reason on my Galaxy phone, every time I get an update of the email app I use or some of the other apps there is a need for me to go back into Settings and enable the Sync. Certain task killers will also mess with the Sync.

For some reason after the last big Samsung update I have to reinstall my pop3 email?

It will just stop loading emails without any error message - I would like a permanent solution. Any ideas?

This happened to most people after the Samsung update, specifically if they were using an email app that was not Gmail. Go into Settings and find Auto Sync or Sync All per email app that you use. If this still causes the error of not accessing the server, hard reset because people reported this fixed a host of problems after the Samsung update.

Hi. I keep getting alerts: Unable to connect to email server to verify your account information. No response from server?

is it my phone that is causing the issue?

The domain may have expired or you have the incorrect server connections. Delete the email set up and then manually set up the process again following the steps in the VisiHow article on this page. You will want to manual set up the app to make sure that you are on the right server settings.

I stopped receiving emails on my Comcast account yesterday morning?

I stopped receiving emails on my Comcast account yesterday morning

First, is your Comcast account in good standing. Non payment or excessive Spam can block the email service and you would need to contact Comcast directly to resolve the issue. Comcast notoriously also has server issues so this could be your situation. Still go into your settings and make sure you are set to Sync. To see if it a Comcast problem, access the email from a PC. If you can connect on the PC and Sync is not resolving the issue contact Customer Support. You will get the generic canned "Clear your cookies" so make sure you go the Application Manager and select the app to wipe cache then wipe the Cache partition from Recovery Mode. This way you can tell them that you already did all that for troubleshooting.

My Samsung Galaxy 3 will only sync once and the only way to get email again is to remove and reset up email box at which time it syncs once, give me my email and will not sync again until account is removed and set up again?

Same as above. It is a pop account and all settings are correct because it works once!

Switch to using Imap which is far more stable for syncing solutions. Also, check if there are any new updates for your email app or if it was recently updated because that can change the Sync options which you will have to set up in the app as well as phone settings.

I've had to reset my password several times lately due to suspect activity. I can access email on computer but get sending failed message when trying on Samsung?

Why can't I send when I can receive?

Some email apps like Yahoo require you to generate a one time app password before the email app will work efficiently. You would have to find this in the email settings on your PC. You will also want to check your server for outgoing messages to make sure you are set up correctly.

I am trying to create an email account and it is giving me authentication failed?

create an email account and it is giving me authentication failed

If you are using POP3/IMAP then your email program may not be supported. Check to make sure that you have a good connection to WiFi that is strong or several bars on data. Airplane Mode is another reason that you will get this message.

Trying to delete my email account but when I go to settings there is nothing about deleting or a trash can?

Go to Settings then Accounts and find usually at the top "Email". Click in the old account and at the bottom of the screen choose Remove Account.
