The easiest way to set up Zimbra email and calendar on your Android device is to use Mobile Device Management (MDM).  IT Services strongly recommends using MDM. However, if you are unable to install MDM please follow the instructions below.

If you receive Restricted Data via email, you MUST use MDM. Otherwise, you should not set up Stanford email on you Android device.

IT Services tested several devices running the Android OS and found significant differences in the features offered in each one. IT Services recommends devices that run Android OS version 4.0  or higher and support encryption.

Different Android devices may have different interfaces, which could change the name and location of menus and options slightly. However, the settings used in the configuration instructions should be similar for all Android devices.
