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

Password: This is the password that relates to the email address you created within CPanel.

Description: This should be filled already in with your email address. But its probably best if you change it to your name as in the Name field above.

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.

8. Example settings to setup your new email account on your iPhone.

9. Continuation of example settings to setup your new account.

Once you have filled in all the settings ensuring they are correct, tap on Save at the top of the screen.
