How to configure the Exchange account for Android Gmail app users

Provide your users with the Gmail app and configure it using the managed configurations. The Exchange account thus becomes part of the work profile or the fully managed device. Users now only need to enter their password to receive emails.


In this how-to, we'll show you how to pre-configure Gmail via the Cortado Administration Portal and distribute it to users' devices.
