For the best experience with Owl Mail on Android, we recommend the Gmail app. Most Android devices come with a preinstalled Gmail application, which offers features similar to the Gmail application on other devices but adds support for push email. If by any chance you do not have this application installed, you can download the Gmail App from m.google.com/mail using your device browser.

Using Gmail App with Owl Mail
  1. Download the Gmail App (if you don't already have it)
  2. Open Gmail
  3. Press Menu
  4. Select Accounts
  5. Select Add Account. & press Next
  6. Select Already have a Google Account? and press Sign In
  7. Enter your full FAU email address (ie. FAUNet_ID@fau.edu) as the Username
  8. Enter your Owl Apps Account Password set in MyFAU as the Password.
  9. Press Sign In
  10. Select Sync Gmail from the Data & Synchronation screen.

You can also add an account through the Account & Sync Settings screen.


Using IMAP for Owl Mail
If you prefer to use your mobile device's native email client, you can integrate a Gmail address with your device using IMAP. More information about this can be find in the Google IMAP Help. Note: You'll need to use your full FAU email (aka FAUNet_ID@fau.edu) for username and new Owl App password set in MyFAU.

On your Windows Mobile device, you'll be able to access Owl Apps with the native email client using IMAP or through Google Sync for a more complete integration

IMAP Configuration
If you would like to setup access using IMAP refer to Google's Windows Mobile IMAP Instructions.
Note: User name is your full FAU email address and password is the Owl Apps password set in MyFAU.

Google Sync
Google Sync offers two-way synchronization between Owl Apps and the Mail, Calendar and Contacts apps on Windows Mobile devices. For more information on installing Google Sync refer to Google's Windows Mobile Setup Instructions.
Note: User name is your full FAU email address and password is the Owl Apps password set in MyFAU.

Owl Mail for mobile browsers
Just like you would on a computer, simply go to http://mymail.fau.edu in your mobile device's web browser to access Owl Mail powered by Google. Simply enter your FAUNet ID (aka username without the @fau.edu) & Password (same one you use to log on to MyFAU). There's no setup required. The mobile browser interface offers familiar Gmail features like archiving, labels, and lots of storage on Google's servers. Best of all, the mobile interface is always in sync with the main Owl Mail server. Most mobile devices with Internet access and that meet the minimum requirements should be able to access Owl Mail in the browser.

IMAP access
If you prefer to use your mobile device's native email client, you can integrate your Owl Mail address with your device using IMAP. Make sure your device is supported for IMAP sync.
Note: User name is your full FAU email address  (aka FAUNet_ID@fau.edu) and password is the Owl Apps password set in MyFAU.
