iphone & android email setupIn 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: thatguy@yourdomain.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.

Using Android

  1. Select Email > Settings button > Add account.
  2. Enter your email address and password.
  3. Set as POP/IMAP and hit next.
  4. Select POP3.
  5. Enter your incoming mail server access domain and hit next.
  6. Enter your SMTP/outgoing server access domain.
  7. Change the SMTP port to 587 (or whatever port your server requires).
  8. 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).
  9. Hit “next,” review your settings, and then done!

Using iPhone

  1. Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account.
  2. Select “Other.”
  3. Select “Add Mail Account.”
  4. Enter your name, email address, password, and a description for the account (e.g. John’s Work Email). Hit “Next.”
  5. At the top of the screen, select POP.
  6. Enter your incoming mail server host (the access domain).
  7. Enter your incoming mail server username (usually your email address; check your hosting cpanel).
  8. Enter your outgoing/SMTP mail server. Usually the same as your incoming server. (You don’t need a username or password for this one.)
  9. Hit “save.”
  10. You’re done!
