How to set up an Email on iPhone

Introduction

Being able to send and receive emails on the move without having access to your laptop or desktop computer can be invaluable, especially if you are expecting an important mail related to your business. This tutorial will acquaint you with a few necessary steps you need to take to set up your email on your iPhone, allowing you to check, send, and receive emails through your phone. Let's get started!

 

Getting Started

Please note that this tutorial assumes that you created the email account in your cPanel first. If you have not completed that, please go ahead and do it before you continue reading. You can find explicit instructions in our guide based on How to manage Email accounts in cPanel.

You are going to need the following configuration details to set up your email account:

  • The Email Account Name(this is typically the name of the account, e.g., [email protected])
  • The Email Password
  • The IMAP/POP server and port
  • The SMTP server and port

If you are a HostArmada customer and are using our email services, you will find the details mentioned above in the “[HostArmada] New Account Information” email. It contains the essential information of your hosting account with us. You can directly review the email from your Client Area by clicking on the email icon located at the top menu bar.

You can also find the configuration details for your email in your cPanel account by navigating to the EMAIL section > Email Accounts > Connect Devices.

In case of difficulties finding the details, please make sure to submit a ticket request to our Support Team. They are going to be happy to provide these to you.

 

How to start your IMAP/POP3 iPhone email setup

Upon doing so, you will land on a page, allowing you to add an iPhone email account. To do so, please press the "Add Accounts" link.

The email application will give you a  list of email providers that you can configure. Please press the one on the very bottom labeled as "Other". 

 

Selecting the Other email account type

 

When you press the "Other" option from the list, you will land on a page with different types of accounts. Please select the choice on the top, labeled "Add Mail Account".

When the email application redirects you to the "New Account" page, you will need to enter the following information:

  • Name - Please enter a name for your Email account. It could be the name of the person who is using it.
  • Email - Please enter the email account's NAME. For example, "[email protected]".
  • Password - Please enter the password for your email account.
  • Description - This text field option will be auto-filled based on the domain name after the @.

In this article, we will cover both, however, you can understand what the difference is from our What is the difference between POP3 and IMAP protocols kb article.

 

IMAP iPhone email setup

The IMAP iPhone mail account will be the default choice when you land on the account type selection page. Underneath, you will see the Name, Email, and Description of the account you just added. Below this section, you are going to see the "INCOMING MAIL SERVER".

 

Incoming Mail Server settings

 

To set it up, please enter the following information:

  • Host Name - Please enter the server’s hostname or IP address where you created your email account.
  • Username - Please enter the NAME of your mail account, for example - "[email protected]".
  • Password - Please type in the password you entered for your email account.

Now that you configured your incoming mail server, you need to set up the outgoing mail server for your iPhone's email application as well. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page, and you are going to see the "OUTGOING MAIL SERVER" section.

 

Outgoing Mail Server settings

 

Enter the following information inside the text fields:

  • Host Name - Please enter the server’s hostname or IP address where you created your email account.
  • Username - Please enter the NAME of your mail account, for example - "[email protected]".
  • Password - Please type in the password you entered for your email account.

Upon doing so, please press the "Next" button located on the top right corner.

The iPhone email application needs a few seconds to connect to the designated server and initiate the email account. After creating it, you can navigate to the "Mail" icon on your device and press it.

Creating a POP3 iPhone email account is analogical, however, instead of selecting the IMAP option on the top, select POP3

 

Selecting POP3 mail configuration type

 

You will need to enter the "INCOMING MAIL SERVER" and the "OUTGOING MAIL SERVER" credentials again.

  • Username - Please enter the NAME of your mail account, for example - "[email protected]".

Pressing the "Mail" icon will redirect you to your mailboxes, and you will see the new iPhone email on the bottom.

That is it! You have managed to perform the POP3 iPhone Email setup on your device successfully.

The process of creating an email account on an iPhone device is pretty straightforward and widely chosen by people because of its simplicity. We hope you did not experience any difficulties, and you have managed to set it the account following our guide.
