    3. Set password to your password

You are now ready to send and receive emails via your iPhone.

If mail.yourdomain.com is not working for the incoming and outgoing server, you can try your IP address or server's host name. (You can ask us for the name server)

Older Versions of iPhone

Although most email settings are identical, the iPhone requires a special setting for the incoming and outgoing mail servers. Instead of using the defaults that are typically used in the email settings replace mail.yourdomain.com with yourservername.server.com (You can ask us for the name server)

  1. Press the Home button and select Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  2. Under Accounts, select Add Account...
  3. Select Other.
  4. Enter your name (which will show in the from field) and your full email address.
  5. Enter your email password and description (we recommend the full email address as your description).
  6. Press Save.
  7. Select POP
  8. Under Incoming Mail Server, enter yourservername.server.com as the Host Name.
  9. Enter the full email address as your User Name.
  10. Enter your email password and then scroll down.
  11. Enter the same information under Outgoing Mail Server.
  12. Press Save.

You are now ready to send and receive emails via your iPhone.


Troubleshooting

I Cannot See My IMAP Folders

Please read the Apple support page.

What is the IMAP Path Prefix?

The correct code is INBOX (all caps).

I Cannot Delete Emails

By default, iOS attempts to delete IMAP email by putting it in the phones trash. This causes an error to come up saying that the messages could not be moved to the trash folder.

To fix this:

  1. Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts and Calendars > {your email account} > Advanced.
  2. Select Deleted Mailbox.
  3. In the On Server section, select the Trash box under the server. This will allow you to remove email from an iPhone or iPod.

Too Many Connections - 500 Errors?

On the iPhone there is a function called "push," and when it is enabled it keeps the connection to our server open and continually checks mail. Consequently, this creates many IMAP processes and eventually conflicts with our Terms of Service.

To avoid running excessive IMAP processes, you can disable push when you don't need it.

  1. Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data.
  2. Toggle Push to Off.

Now, instead of retrieving emails continuously as they arrive, your iPhone will use the global Fetch setting to retrieve emails manually or at intervals.
