2. Select Passwords & Accounts. Then select “Add Account…”

3. Select Other

4. Select “Add Mail Account” from the top

5. Enter in the details of your mailbox. Select Next when complete.

  • Email = Your FULL email address
  • Password = Mailbox password
  • Description = Description of your mailbox on the phone

6. The server may or may not detect the incoming and outgoing server settings. In this case, make sure you enter in the correct incoming and outgoing mail server. This is usually the same. In this example, it is “”.
