  1. When adding a new Gmail account on my Android, it asks if it’s a Personal IMAP or Personal POP3. I don’t know what those are, so which do I choose to set up my Meredith email on my phone? Thanks!

    • Hi Taylor!

      That’s a new one for us! As far as we can tell, either one would work, but you will probably want to use IMAP.

      We’ll keep looking into it when we have access to an Android. Until then, keep us posted!
