How do I setup IMAP e-mail on my iPhone or iPad?

This article describes how to set up an IMAP or POP mail account on iOS (iPhone/iPad) devices.

1. Add an email account.

  • If this is the first account you are setting up on this iPhone, tap Mail and then select Other.
  • If you already have another email account set up, go to the home screen and navigate to Settings > Accounts & Passwords> Add Account > Other > Add Mail Account.

2. Enter account information.

  • Name: Enter your name as you would like it to appear in the “From” field of the outgoing messages (e.g. Jane Doe).
  • Email or Address: Enter the complete email address.
  • Password: Enter the mailbox password.
  • Description: (Optional) How you want to identify the specific email account. For example: “Work email”.

Tap Next.

3. Select IMAP and then add the following information:

Incoming Mail Server
