To set up K-9 Mail with Runbox, please follow the step-by-step instructions below.

Note that the setup process and dialog boxes on your device may vary slightly from what is shown here, depending on what version of K-9 Mail you are using (these screen shots were made with K-9 Mail 4.803).

1. Get started
When you open K-9 Mail for the first time you will be asked to set up a new account. If you already have accounts set up you will need to tap on the + in the top right to add a new account on the accounts screen.
