Configuring IMAP, CardDAV, and CalDAV on Android based devices

Summary

You are configuring an Android based device to synchronize Email, Contacts, and Calendars with Kerio Connect.

Details

The Android mobile operating system supports a variety of options for synchronizing Email, Contacts, and Calendars. This article addresses the specific options which combine the open protocols (IMAP, CalDAV, and CardDAV). 

IMAP is natively supported by the Android OS, however CalDAV and CardDAV require installation of 3rd party apps, which are available through Google play. The tested apps are CalDAV-sync and CardDAV-sync.

Configuration

Configuring CalDAV and CardDAV based synchronization involves a specific URL that is entered into the settings of the application. This URL can be directed to your own Contacts and Calendars stored in Kerio Connect, as well as those shared by other users, or available in public folders. For configuration details, refer to KB 1327.

To configure IMAP, do the following:

This assumes as an example, that your email address is myname@mydomain.com, and your Kerio Connect server is located at mail.mydomain.com. These values must be replaced by your own email address and location of your Kerio Connect server.

1. From the Home screen, tap the Application button and then tap the Email icon.

2. If this is your first email account, you will be presented with an email setup screen, tap the Next button. Otherwise, press the Menu button, tap Accounts, press the Menu button, and tap Add account.

3. Enter your entire email address (e.g., myname@mydomain.com) and in the second box, enter the password associated with your email account.

4. Tap the Manual setup button and then tap the IMAP button and enter the following information in the fields provided: 

    • Username—Enter your entire email address (e.g., myname@mydomain.com).
    • Password—Enter the password associated with your email account.
    • IMAP server—Enter the secure server name: mail.mydomain.com
    • Port—Enter the secure port number: 993
    • Security type—Select SSL (always)

5. Tap the Next button. The device will connect to the internet and check your incoming settings.

6. On the Outgoing server settings screen, enter the following information in the fields provided: 

    • SMTP server—Enter the secure server name: mail.mydomain.com
    • Port—Enter the secure port number: 587
    • Security type—Select SSL (always) 

7. Tap the Require sign-in checkbox then tap the Next button and the device will connect to the internet and check your outgoing settings. 

8. On the Account options screen, make changes, as desired.

9. Tap the Next button. On the Set up email screen, enter your name in the Type your name field (this is the name that will be displayed in the From field of email messages you send) and then tap the Done button.
