Address: This is your email address as you setup within CPanel.

Once you have filled these parts in, tap the Save button at the top.

7. You should now see a screen where you can select if you would like to set the account up as IMAP or POP.


Unsure of the difference?

If you select IMAP it will store the emails on the server and sync your device with messages and folders and you can still read and download them elsewhere.

Selecting POP will make it so that the emails download to the phone and nowhere else. This could be the best option for you unless you want to just see emails when you are out away from your main PC, but you will be managing your mail in two places.

You need to them fill out all the fields on that screen as per steps 8 and 9.

11. Your iPhone will now try to verify the account settings, this will be successful if you have specified the correct information.
12. If you see this screen, you will have made a mistake of some description with the settings which you will need to adjust as per steps 7 through to 9.

13. Once you have completed the setup, you will now see this screen with your account listed. We now need you to tap on your account to enter the settings again.

16. At the bottom of this screen you will see the Server Port set to 587, you need to change this so that it says 26. So tap where it says 587 and a numer pad will appear as per step 15.

On your firewall at home ensure that ports 2082 and 2095 are both open to enable you to use either format
