Mail app for Android 4.4 (KitKat)ΒΆ

Note

WebFaction supports IMAP and POP mail protocols, but IMAP is recommended. By default, IMAP leaves messages stored on the mail server, allowing you to access your mail from different computers and devices, while POP typically does not. If you still want to configure your email client to use POP, please see Configuring Other Mail Clients for details.
