Hushmail Setup – Android

Please note: When sending mail from a third-party mail client, your copy of the message will be saved in your Sent folder as encrypted, even if the message is sent as non-encrypted. By default, any mail sent via SMTP from a third-party mail program will be sent as non-encrypted, unless the recipient is a Hushmail customer or has previously set a passphrase for receiving encrypted email.

Tip: These instructions are for configuring IMAP on a Samsung Galaxy S7 with Android 6.0. If you are using a different Android smartphone or operating system version the server settings are the same but the process might be slightly different. You can also use their mobile site, m.hush.com, to access your Hushmail account on your Android smartphone.

1. From your Applications menu, open the Email application and tap Add Account.

2. Type in your full email address and your passphrase, then tap Manual Setup, as shown here:
