Email setup for iPhone or iPad

How do I set up POP3/IMAP email on an iPhone or iPad?

You can setup your iPhone or iPad to receive mail from one of your mailboxes as follows:

  • Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account > Other > Add Mail Account
  • On the next screen enter the following settings:
  • Name: Your name as you would like recipients to see it
  • Address: The email address for the mailbox you want to setup (e.g. john@maltonwebdesign.co.uk)
  • Password: The password for the mailbox
  • Description: Your own description for the mailbox
  • Press Save

On the next screen, leave IMAP selected at the top and enter the following settings:

Incoming Mail Server

  • Host Name: mail.yourdomainname (e.g mail.maltonwebdesign.co.uk)
  • User Name: The email address for the mailbox you want to setup (e.g. john@maltonwebdesign.co.uk)
  • Password: The password for the mailbox (should already be filled in)

Outgoing Mail Server

  • SMTP: mail.yourdomainname (e.g mail.maltonwebdesign.co.uk)
  • User Name: The email address for the mailbox you want to setup (e.g. john@maltonwebdesign.co.uk)
  • Password: The password for the mailbox

Press Save

You will then get a message saying €œCannot Connect Using SSL. Do you want to try setting up the account without SSL?€, press Yes.

It should then connect to the mail server and the account will be setup.

If you are having problems with sending mail, you may need to change the port for the SMTP server.

You can do this by going to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Select the mail account > SMTP > Primary Server > Server Port and changing this to 587.
