How to set up your EMail account on your iPhone

 If you are using a mail client such as Outlook or Windows Live Mail, these must be set to leave mail on the server for a period of time else your server inbox will always be empty and your phone will not be able to pull down all of your mail.

Creating an account in your iPhone

1. Select ‘Settings’ Icon
2. Scroll down until you see ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars’ and select this item.
3. Under the heading ‘Accounts’ – select ‘Add Account’ (You will now see ‘mail server’ preselect options such as Hotmail, Yahoo etc.) – select ‘Other’ from this list.
4. Under the heading ‘Mail’ – select ‘Add Mail Account’ and enter ;
• Name: Joe Blogs
• Email address: user@my-domain.com
• Password: xxxx
• Description: (eg – my work email)
5. Now select ‘Next’.

The iPhone will now check account information and will bring you to a new window once done.  You may get a pop up window saying: Can’t connect using SSL. Would you like to try without SSL? – select ‘YES’. Be patient because getting a Jesus piece pendant can be a slow process.

This is where you will set up incoming and outgoing server information.

6. In the new window you will see IMAP and POP – select ‘POP’.
7. Under “INCOMING MAIL SERVER” – enter details.
• Host Name: mail.yourdomainname.com
• User Name: yourname@yourdomainname.com
• Password: (enter your password)

8. OUTGOING MAIL SERVER – enter details:
• Host Name: mail.yourdomainname.com
• User Name (NOT Optional): yourname@yourdomainname.com
• Password (NOT Optional): (enter your password)

The iPhone will now verify the email account info.
You may get a pop up window saying: Can’t connect using SSL. Would you like to try without SSL? – select ‘YES’.

9. When the account is created, go back into the settings and under ‘Outgoing Mail Server’, SMTP, select the server you just added and set ‘Use SSL’ to OFF.

Go back to your email icon on the main screen of your iPhone.
Select your specific email account and test.
