Gmail Setup for Android

  1. Open the Settings app and tap "Accounts" in the list of settings.
    (Depending on your device, this item may be called "Users and accounts", "Cloud and accounts" or something similar instead.)

  2. Tap "Add account".
    (If you don't see this option, you may have to tap "Accounts" again first before you do so.)

  3. Tap "Google".

  4. Enter your SSU email address and tap "Next".
    (Note: If you have previously configured your Exchange email account on the Gmail app, you will need to remove that account first before proceeding.)

  5. Tap "Accept".
    You will be taken to the login page to log into your SSU account.

  6. Enter your username and password in the appropriate fields and tap "Login".

  7. Google may ask if you would like to back your device up to Google Drive. Make sure this is toggled OFF (see the picture below).
    Then, tap "Accept" to complete the configuration process.

  8. Your Google account should now be fully configured on your Android device. Your email, calendar items and contacts can be viewed and edited within the Gmail, Calendar and Contacts apps, respectively.
