Using an iPhone with Your Email

 

You can always use Web-Based Email to send and receive email messages. But you also can view your email with an email client. To access your email through an iPhone®, add an account with the settings outlined below. This article's screenshots use iPhone firmware 3.1.2, but previous versions use the same settings.

NOTE: iPod Touch users may also use these settings, but must connect via Wi-Fi to send and receive email.

Before You Start:

You need the names of your incoming and outgoing servers to set up email with a client. Web-Based Email contains this information.

  1. Log in to Web-Based Email at email.secureserver.net.
  2. From the Help menu, select Email Client Settings.
  3. Make a note of your incoming and outgoing server information.
  4. Continue with the procedures outlined below to set up your email client.
