 The new account wizard will spin the wheel and then advance you to the next screen.

7) This screen is where we will specify the settings needed to connect to your inbox on our server . You will want to choose IMAP as it allows for syncing of sent/received messages between multiple devices such as work station, personal computer or even another mobile device. Tap Next.

  • Account Type = IMAP
  • Incoming Mail Server = (where is your website address minus the www)
  • Username = Your full email address
  • Password = Your email account password

Note: To connect via SSL – Enter the hostname for the server in which you are hosted on into the hostname field under Incoming Mail Server field. You can retrieve this server information from your welcome letter or our support team.

  • Username = Your full email address.
  • Password = Your email account password.

We recommend that you use the server hostname. This helps prevent certificate errors that may appear when using your domain as the hostname. You can find the server hostname in your welcome email.

After a few seconds, you should be all set.  You can see it here listed under “Accounts”.

 11) Return to the home screen by pressing the Home button on the device.  To check your email, press the “Mail” icon.

That’s it! You have now setup an IMAP e-mail account on your iPhone.
