Greetings!  Would any of you know how to install a Ecunet e-mail account on the e-mail client that comes on a device operating on Android 5.1.1?

All of a sudden, Google blocked me from sending messages from my Ecunet e-mail and four Gmail (domain name) accounts on my Android smart phone and tablet.  I suspect that Google increased its security precautions.  (No Gmail accounts will run on my tablet that runs on Android 4.2.2.)  I can still access mail using the Gmail client on my devices, but I prefer to use the default generic client. 

I must be able to work offline as often I am away from a signal. 

I have changed my password and reinstalled my Ecunet e-mail account in Thunderbird on my laptops.  But these are too heavy for me to carry for long times away from home.  Many times now, I have followed Google's instructions at for configuring other e-mail clients, but these do not work.

Should I contact Google directly?  If so, who at Google would I contact?  Or have any of you solved this problem and can tell me what I need to do?

I'm pretty desperate now, and will appreciate all the suggestions anyone can provide.

May God bless you today!  Cordially, Ray

Hi Ray, since your Ecunet email account is a Gmail account, I suggest using the Gmail for Android app on your phone and tablet. Ecunet accounts are actually G Suite accounts. You should be able to set that up on your phone and tablet by following these instructions:


We do not require two-factor authentication and we don’t require device approval by an admin.


Send me a note ( if you get any specific error messages while trying to install and use the Gmail app with your Ecunet account.


Warm regards, Paul

And if you really don’t like the Gmail app Ray, there are quite a few free email apps out there. I use Outlook. If you’ve installed your Ecunet account on your phone using the instructions below, Outlook will find that account and install it for you.
