In this article, we will show you, with step-by-step instructions, how to set up your email on your Android or Apple phone.
Please note: this is only for an email account that comes with your ISP or your website hosting company.
If you’re setting up a free account like Hotmail, Gmail, or Yahoo, usually all you need to do is enter your email address and password.
You will need these things to get started:
Your domain name: yourdomain.com.
Your email address: email@example.com.
Your email password. multiplewordsarebest. “12345” is not a good password.
Your mail access domain. This is typically mail.example.com, but you can double-check your mail settings in your website hosting control panel, or ask your webmaster.
- Select Email > Settings button > Add account.
- Enter your email address and password.
- Set as POP/IMAP and hit next.
- Select POP3.
- Enter your incoming mail server access domain and hit next.
- Enter your SMTP/outgoing server access domain.
- Change the SMTP port to 587 (or whatever port your server requires).
- Choose “requires SMTP authentication” and “Same as incoming server” for the authentication details. If not, skip to the next step. (Check to see if your server requires this).
- Hit “next,” review your settings, and then done!
- Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account.
- Select “Other.”
- Select “Add Mail Account.”
- Enter your name, email address, password, and a description for the account (e.g. John’s Work Email). Hit “Next.”
- At the top of the screen, select POP.
- Enter your incoming mail server host (the access domain).
- Enter your incoming mail server username (usually your email address; check your hosting cpanel).
- Enter your outgoing/SMTP mail server. Usually the same as your incoming server. (You don’t need a username or password for this one.)
- Hit “save.”
- You’re done!
