Export Settings

K-9 provides the ability to import and export your settings. This is useful when changing/adding a device.

The settings are exported as a file, stored in a location of your choice.

You can now move this file to a new device or just keep it there when you uninstall and then re-install K-9 Mail on the same device. The settings file does not contain any of your passwords.

To export your settings, go to Settings -> Backup -> Export settings

Import/Export Menu

By default you will export all your settings, including all account-specific settings. If you want to export only the settings for a particular account, deselect the other accounts.

Import/Export Menu

The "Export" button will prompt you for a location in which to save the settings file.

Once saved, you can use the "Share" button to, for example, copy the settings file to Google Drive, or email it as an attachment.
