If you continue to have issues with this setup you will need to contact your iPhone support staff who should be able to help you.)
1. Go to the mail setup screen.
From the iPhone main screen, tap Settings
> Add Account
. This makes the new account screen appear.
2. Choose the Other
This makes the "Enter your account information" screen appearUser Information:
Enter your name and email address Logon Information:
Enter your FULL email (email@example.com
) and password
Mail server information :
(Make sure POP3 is selected)
Incoming mailserver (POP3): secure.emailsrvr.com
Outgoing mailserver (SMTP): secure.emailsrvr.com
Some things to bear in mind:
• The Name
is what other people see when you send them mail. It should be your real name, such as John Appleseed
or Steve Jobs
• It's correct for the Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server settings to be identical.
• The passwords you enter here must be the same as your Mail Server account.
When you're finished, click Save
in the upper-right corner of the screen

Although the steps above are sufficient for basic e-mail, you need to do one more thing to make sure your iPhone properly stores sent messages, deleted messages and drafts on the mail server.
First, go to the advanced settings screen. Tap the address
of the mailbox you just created:
You'll see a screen that looks similar to the one you just typed your settings into, but if you scroll down to the very bottom, you'll find a new Advanced item. Tap Advanced:
You'll see a section titled Mailbox Behaviors. We want to change all three behaviors, so first, tap Drafts Mailbox
That makes the "Mailboxes" screen appear:
Tap Drafts from the On the Server section, as shown in blue above. This saves that setting and returns you to the Mailbox Behaviors screen.
Repeat the same steps for the Sent Mailbox (choosing Sent on the server) and the Deleted Mailbox (choosing Trash on the server).You're finished!
Press the Home button
on your iPhone to return to the main screen, then click the Mail
icon. Your iPhone can now send and receive e-mail.
By the way, if you ever need to return to these screens and view or edit the settings of an existing account, you can tap Settings
at any time.
