Troubleshoot issues related to email on your device for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

This article helps troubleshoot email issues on your Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

You may have email issues if you're unable to:

  • Send emails
  • Receive emails

These steps help identify and resolve the underlying cause. After completing each step, test to see if the issue is fixed. If not, continue to the next step.

  1. Verify mobile data is enabled.

    1. From the home screen, swipe down the Status bar, then tap the Settings icon.
    2. Tap Connections
    3. Tap Data usage.
    4. Ensure Mobile data is ON

  2. Update device profile if unable to connect to Sprint network.

    1. From the home screen, swipe down the Status bar, then tap the Settings icon.
    2. Scroll to and tap System updates.
    3. Tap Update Profile.
    4. After the profile update is complete, tap OK.
    5. If your Samsung Galaxy S8 Active still can't connect to data, troubleshoot data connectivity.

  3. Verify that the email address and password are correct.

    On your Samsung S8 Active web browser, navigate to your email provider's website and try to sign in to your email account.

    If you're unable to sign in, double-check that you entered the correct username and password.

    If you recently updated your email account password, you also have to update the email settings on your Samsung Galaxy S8 Active.

  4. Double-check that you have set up your email account correctly on your Samsung Galaxy S8 Active.

    Be sure that you've entered the exact settings for each email account you want to access. The instructions are different depending on the type of email account you're trying to set up.

    • For a personal email address:
    • This is the most common scenario and includes all major public email providers such as Yahoo!�, Hotmail�, Gmail�, and AOL�.

      1. If you've already set up the email address on your Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, try removing it from your phone to delete any incorrect settings.

        Removing your email account doesn't delete any of your emails, it only removes the link to your account for now. Remove an email account.

      2. Add your email account

    • For a business email address via Microsoft Exchange�:
    • Many companies provide a Microsoft Exchange email address to their employees.

      Sprint recommends that you contact your IT department for the correct setup information. You'll need your server address, domain, username, and your corporate password.

      After you have this information, set up the Microsoft Exchange account.

      If your Exchange account still doesn't work, contact your corporate IT department for more help.

  5. Perform a soft reset.

    A soft reset reconnects your Samsung Galaxy S8 Active to the Sprint network.

    1. Turn off the device by pressing and holding the Power key, then tap Power off.
    2. Tap Power off to confirm.
    3. Wait for 10 seconds.
    4. Press the Power key to turn the device back on.

    Note: To optimize device performance, be sure your Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is running the most recent device software. Check for software updates.

If you're still having issues, please try the Sprint Community pages or contact Sprint Customer Care for more help.
