How to set up your EMail account on your iPhone

How to set up your Mag-Net Smartermail account on your iPhone

 If you are using a mail client such as Outlook or Windows Live Mail, and you are using POP3 protocol to download your 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.

These are the server connections settings you will need. Keep them handy!
If you have your own domain hosted with us replace mail.mag-net.com with your domain ie mail.mydomain.com.

Incoming Mail Server
Host Name: mail.mag-net.com
User Name: {your full email address}
Password: {your account password}
Port: 995 for POP, 993 for IMAP
SSL: Enabled 

Outgoing Mail Server
Host Name: mail.mag-net.com
User Name: {your full email address}
Password: {your account password}
Port: 465 for both POP or IMAP
SSL: Enabled

Creating an account in your iPhone

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.
