    It is apparent it can’t be set up using a Google Account. I have seen similar posts on the net and nobody has ever posted a successful reply. Also nobody who has posted a solution has revealed their phone/OS and this might be quite valuable. Any help would be appreciated.

      Brian,

      It’s working great on my phone, which is running Android 2.2 (FroYo). By working, I mean I’m able to fully send and receive emails.

      (update) I’ve just bought an Android 2.3 device, and can confirm that the email setup process is still the same.

    With new android devices ( I have the galaxy nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich) you need to create a temporary password for specific apps to log-in. To do this:
    -Log in to your phoenix email
    -Go to account settings
    -Click on Authorizing applications and sites
    -Pick a name (does not matter) and enter it into the text box
    -Generate a password
    -When following the instructions above, use this new password instead of your phoenix password.
    -All Done!

      Thank you, Michael! Do you mind if I update my WGU/Android post with your comments as well (giving you credit of course)? I’m stuck on Gingerbread (2.3) until I can afford to shell out for an ICS-based device.

    – Open the gmail app on your phone
    – Tap your phone’s menu button then choose “accounts” and “add account” (or however you normally get to the “add account” option)
    – Tap your phone’s menu button
    – Choose “browser sign-in”
    The rest is self explanatory and the same process as signing into gmail through the desktop site.

  4. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone
    to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. thanks a lot

      It’s actually a free theme called Pilcrow. I’ll admit to being too lazy to modify it, so I’m glad the designers did such a great job!

  5. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
    work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent
    hackers?

    • labrant

      So far my best advice is to only use a browser with a javascript blocking extension (such as Firefox or Chrome) on a Linux platform. I suspect most of these so-called “hackings” are the result of keylogging malware on the admin’s machine. It captures the URL, username, and password, no “hacking” required. It just quietly looks over your shoulder to see what you’re typing to get in, essentially. It happens with identity theft and credit card fraud, too.

  6. What you said made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you wrote a catchier title? I am not saying your content isn’t solid., however suppose you added a headline to possibly grab people’s attention?
    I mean University of Phoenix Email on Android | The Lab
    Rant is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write article titles to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

  7. Pretty! This has been an extremely wonderful post. Many thanks for
    providing this information.
