If you have a Gmail account you can setup extra email account aliases on that gmail account. This will allow you to send from any domain name you own e.g. nerd@domainname.com rather than e.g. nerd12345@gmail.com

This will make your emails look more professional when dealing with clients etc.

Note: Gmail calls these “aliases”, in Aqua Mail they are called “identities”.

Login to you Gmail account.
> Press on the Settings Cog in the top right of the screen.
> Settings.
> Accounts and Import
> Goto the Send Mail As section
> Add another email address
> Enter your name
> Enter the email alias you want to add to Gmail. (E.g nerd@domainname.com)

Then enter the following details on this picture below to send the emails using the gmail server.

Gmail Email Forwarder

SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 587
Username: This is your gmail email address
Password: This is your gmail password
Security: Secured connection using TLS (Recommended)
Click on Save Changes.
You will be sent an email. Click on the link in the email to verify your request.

Aqua Mail Account Identities

On your phone open Aqua Mail.
Goto the menu and click on “Accounts”
Hold your finger on your gmail.com account in the list until a menu comes appears.
Identities
Add an Identity
Enter your email address you want to send emails from: nerd@domainname.com
Enter your name for outgoing emails.
Save

Now when you try to send an email on Aqua Mail it will now ask what email address alias that you want to send the email from. Choose the one you want to send from.

[SOLVED] – Samsung Galaxy S4 Microphone Faulty/Not Working

I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 with a broken microphone which I was hoping to fix. When I made phone calls I had to put the loudspeaker on every time so the other person could hear me as the other microphone used without the loudspeaker was not functioning. I purchased a new ribbon cable with a microphone and charging port and replaced it. I then tried to charge the phone and got the following message on the phone:

Info: Charging paused. Battery temperature too low.

The device would not charge at all due to this error. So I then put the original ribbon cable with the old microphone and charging port back in the device and re-tested. The phone would charge as normal. The microphone was still faulty.

I did try cleaning the mic port with a small pin/needle and this did clear some dirt away but this still did not solve the problem

I then tried a full factory reset on the phone doing this by pressing the

power button + home button + Volume up button (whilst the phone is off.)

You can the do a full factory reset – I believe this is different from the one in the “settings” on the phone as I tried that and the microphone still would not work.

I found that when a full factory reset was done by holding the above buttons down and completing the factory reset and making a phone call the microphone started to work again.

So my beliefs so far is that the microphone issue is actually a software problem with Android OS or possibly an application conflicting with the microphone.

So from doing this the microphone is fully working again and the problem is solved.

I hope this helps someone else with the same issues.
