A little note before we get started:
The following instructions are not taking into account any restrictions that your ISP might enforce. If you experience trouble sending email, please take a look at the bottom of this article for some pointers to help you resolve these issues.
On your iPhone home screen, tap on Settings.
Then scroll down and tap onyou get to Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
Now select "Add Account ..."
From the list of available email providers, scroll to the bottom and select "Other".
Next, tap on "Add Mail Account".
Here, you enter:
Your full name (as it should appear the from field when others receive your email).
The email address we created for you.
The corresponding password we provided you with.
A reference name for this account.
Once you tap "Next", the software will attempt to connect to your account.
You will be asked to enter the server details for your email account.
The first section of details should already be filled out from the information you previously provided.
Incoming Mail Server:
This should be "mail." followed by the full domain name. E.g. if your domain is wonderland.com, then you would have to enter mail.wonderland.com
This should be your complete email address (including the domain name).
Again, the password you were given for the account.
Outgoing Mail Server:
Basically exactly the same information as for the incoming mail server.
"mail." followed by the full domain name.
Your complete email address.
Guess what! Yes, still the same password.
Now that you have managed to enter all those details on the impossibly small keyboard, the software will attempt to verify everything you have entered.
Cross your fingers and hope that there are no typos anywhere.
Don't get scared. This is ok and you can connect to the server without using SSL, so let's hit "Yes" and you're done with the setup of your email account!
You should be all set, but if there are still problems, here the settings again after completion of the account setup.
You can see the account information as well as incoming server details.
"mail." followed by your domain name.
Has to be your entire email address.
The Server Port to use is 25.
At the bottom, you can tap on your outgoing mail server for the appropriate settings.
This is where you can list one (or more) outgoing SMTP servers.
If your ISP does not impose any restrictions, you should be ok with the single smtp / outgoing server we set up earlier.
If your ISP restricts outgoing email in any way, it's best to give them a ring and set up an additional outgoing mail server with their details.
Last but not least, here the Outgoing Mail Server settings in detail.
Again, Host Name is "mail." followed by your domain name.
User Name has to be your entire email address.
You should be using SSL.
Authentication shold happen via Password.
The Server Port to use is 25.
If you find that you are able to send email, e.g. while connected over WiFi, but are not able to send email when connected to your mobile phone's network (be this over EDGE, 3G or 4G), this might be due to restrictions from your mobile phone provider.
If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, you will have to get in touch with your mobile phone provider and ask if you need to use their smtp / relay server for any outgoing email.
You might have to add an additional mail server, as described in the last few steps above,
