How do I configure the Samsung S3/S4 for my email accounts?

This tutorial will show you how to setup an email account on the Samsung Galaxy S3.

At the time of this writing, the current Operating System (OS) version is Android 4.1.2 "Jelly Bean". Make sure your phone's operating system is up to date before adding an email account to it, you can get help on how to do this from your wireless carrier (AT&T, Verizon, Ufone, etc.).

We have not tested the S4 yet, however based on customer feedback, setup on the S4 is identical or very similar to the S3.
