Setting Up Email On iPhones/iOS Devices

iPhone / iPads

To setup your iPhone/iPad to use email, you must already have the email account created in your Control Panel. You will need the following information when following the step by step instructions below. The video above will also be of help.

Required Information

Username: user@yourdomain.com (your full email address)
Password: use whatever password you were assigned
Incoming Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your domain name)
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your domain name)
Authentication: The outgoing mail server will require password authentication to send mail. The incoming does not. You do not need SSL or anything else it might ask you.

Getting Started

2. Select "Other"
3. Click Add Mail Account
4. Name: Enter your name
5. Email: Enter your full email address
6. Password: Enter your password
7. Description: Give a short description to this email account
8. Click Next

Username: Enter your FULL email address
Password: Should already have your password there

Outgoing Mail Settings

Host Name: mail.yourcompany.com
Username: Enter your full email address
