Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with setting up a Freeola email address on the Edison Mail App on an Android mobile device. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.

Before Continuing

Please visit your MyFreeola account and make a note of the following information before continuing, you'll need to know this for later on in the guide:

1 - What protocol your e-mail address is set up to use (IMAP or POP3).

The Edison App will only work with IMAP.

2 - What service is assigned to your e-mail address (EmailPro, Free Email or One Address).

You will only be able to use the Edison app while subscribed to EmailPro and using IMAP.

3 - Your e-mail address password.

You can find this information by clicking Email Settings in the left-hand navigation in MyFreeola, then My Email Addresses. You should then be able to click Settings & Features button next to the relevant e-mail address to view all required email settings.

This guide covers both setting up your account for the first time, as well as adding an additional account already in place, and assumes you have already downloaded and installed the Edison Mail App. If you do not already have this, please download this before continuing.

The Edison Email App only supports IMAP email. If you have chosen to use a POP mail service from Freeola, you will be required to use an alternative software.

This guide was written using Edison Mail version 1.47.11. However, these steps should still work, with some slight wording or visual differences, on most versions of this app.
