Set Unix mail Postfix/IMAP on Android.

Notice its for Android 4.1 and up.

Mail app on Android 4.1.2 does not work with our IMAP CS mail server.
You need to download mail app (recommended app: K-9) from app store.
In this case, make sure that you disable IMAP namespace, and define mail folder to your mail folder in your homedir on CSA/CSM, like “mail”.
