Hi there,

First and foremost I'm very new to the android sdk and a bit of a Java greenhorn so bear with me.

I'm developing an application that needs to access a users email. This specific part of my application will ask the user their email address and password and try to determine all of the pertinent data to connect and access the server later on.

As I've searched pretty hard to find some similar solutions, here's my question: Is there a library or standard method to determining all the information required to connecting to an email server or should it be an exhaustive process (such as going through each and every possible server name, port, etc...)?

Any resources or input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Marcus

K9mail is an open source, working email client for Android. You can maybe study their source code and see how they configure and setup email accounts.
