How to setup email on an iPhone or iPad

Step 1.  Tap Add Account, tap Other, then tap Add Mail Account

Step 2.  Enter your Name, full Email address, Password and a Description for your account


Step 3.  Tap Next.  Mail will try to find the email settings and finish your account setup. If Mail finds your email settings, tap Done to complete your account setup.

If Mail can’t find your email settings, you need to enter them manually. After you enter your email address and password, tap Next, then follow these steps:

  1. Choose iMAP or POP for your new account.   Majority of people with a mobile device choose iMAP as it will be able to synchronize and backup your emails.
  2. Enter the information for Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server that has been provided to you by your provider.


Step 4.  If your email settings are correct, tap Save to finish. If the email settings are incorrect, you will be asked to edit them.

If you still can’t set up your email account or save your email settings, contact your email provider for further assistance.
