I Cannot get my home email set up on my Samsung Note 3. It always says something to the effect of "cannot safely connect to server"
Have you tried the Android email instructions?
If not, you can find them here:
Setup Email on an Android Device
I used the configuration 1 provided above on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 without any problems.
Just found this post, in case the above link didn't help.
