How do I configure Direct on my mobile device?

Est. reading time: 6 minutes

DataMotion Direct can now be accessed from your mobile device to allow you to receive and send secure messages from within the native mail application. This guide will provide step-by-step instructions for configuring and using DataMotion Direct from your mobile device. Your DataMotion Direct email address is probably the same as your primary or corporate email address, and if so your device is already configured to access your primary email account. In order to make it easier to distinguish your primary email account from your DataMotion Direct account, we will use a modified version of your email address for this account. Do not worry; this is not a new email address but a way to distinguish between your primary email account (where you send unsecured email) and your DataMotion Direct account.

Note

Your device will not display Push Notifications for incoming DataMotion Direct messages, because this capability is not supported when using POP3. To check for new messages, refresh your message list manually or some clients support an auto refresh frequency.
