A guide on how to set up your hosted email account on your iPhone

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to set up your hosted email on your iphone. A hosted email is the email provided to you or purchased with your hosting account. Although you can use webmail to send and receive emails, being able to use your phone is alot more convenient.

The first step is to find out your email server details. To do this you will need to login to your webmail or cpanel. Below I will use webmail. Your webmail URL is your domain followed by /webmail. Your username is your email and your password is your email password.

Once you have logged in you will see two row of options. The top row is your mail readers, you can choose either of these 3 mail readers to send and receive email… the second row is your configuration and security options.

Here you need to click on “configure mail client”

Once you are in the configuration screen scroll down to manual options and take note of the credentials in the grey box and the credentials below these box..

If you have an SSL on your account then you will use the settings in the grey box, if you do have an SSL then use the credentials below this. If you do not know which to use try both.

Note down your incoming server and your outgoing server you will need these for setting up on your phone.

You will also need your email and password.

A summary of what you will need:

Now open up your phone.

Click the Settings button on your home screen. Then proceed to the Mail app and tap Accounts Add AccountOtherAdd Mail Account. There you will need to fill in your information:

Tap Next and you will have to fill the details of the Incoming Mail Server:

Complete the same steps for the outgoing mail server and wait for the Mail app to verify your information. Then, tap Save and your email will be added to your email account list.
