This is the most common scenario and includes all major public email providers such as Yahoo!®, Hotmail®, Gmail®, and AOL®.
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.
Perform a soft reset.
A soft reset reconnects your LG Optimus G to the Sprint network.
Note: To optimize device performance, be sure your LG Optimus G is running the most recent device software. Check for software updates.
