Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with setting up a Freeola email address on the Samsung Mail App on a Samsung 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).

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

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 editing an account already in place, and assumes you have already downloaded and installed the Samsung Mail App. If you do not already have this, please download this before continuing.

    • Security type will be SSL.
