I know the idea behind /e/ is to de-google the mobile OS but we have to admit that most of us are still using Gmail ID’s . We have received a number of queries from users on how to add a google email ID through the mail app. So here is a simple HOWTO post.
Open the email app. Click on the 3 dots menu on top right. This pop should open. In there you would see the ‘Add account’ option. Click the option
The Add account will open this screen. Here you enter your Gmail ID. Click ‘NEXT’
This will take you to Google’s log in page. Where you enter your credentials - gmail ID and password.
Once the correct gmail ID and password are entered it will show you a message ‘Please wait’ when it validates your ID. You will have to authorize allow the app to access your gmail account. Click the ‘Allow’ button.
Once the account is validated you will come to this screen where you give an account name (optional) and type a name which will be displayed on outgoing mail.
Finally the Gmail folder will be created in your mail app and show you the number of emails in your account. You can also add an account from Settings >>User & account >> Add account >> Google
