iOS: iPhone (iOS 10 – IMAP) Mail Client

This article will assist you in setting up your iPhone with your Hosted Email mailbox. This article assumes that you have iOS 10 installed. If you have a newer version, the screenshots below may not align exactly. Click here for the iOS instructions. We recommend running the latest version of iOS. This will ensure your phone has the latest features and security patches.

  1. On the home screen, tap the Settings icon.
  2. Within Settings, scroll down and tap Mail

  3. Now tap Accounts

  4. Tap Add Account

  5. Tap Other, at the bottom

  6. Tap Add Mail Account

  7. The next screen will ask for basic account information:

    Name: Your first and last name
    Password: Your mailbox password
    Description: Anything you’d like!

  8. Tap Next
  9. Make sure IMAP is selected

    Enter the following server details:

    Password: Your mailbox password

    Incoming Server Settings

    Host Name:

    Outgoing Server Settings

    Note: Even though it says optional, they are NOT optional. If you skip these fields, you will NOT be able to send out emails.

  10. Tap Next

Next, we are configuring your iPhone to sync your various IMAP folders and prevent duplicate folders from showing up. We call this Folder Mapping; below are the steps to do so.

  1. Within the Mail settings window, select the account that you just added.
  2. Under IMAP, tap Account
  3. Within the account settings, select Advanced at the bottom
  4. Under MAILBOX BEHAVIORS, select Sent Mailbox

  5. Select the appropriate folder under ON THE SERVER

  6. Now repeat the previous step for Deleted Mailbox.

    Ignore the Archive Mailbox, it will not be used.

  7. Last step! Make sure Deleted Mailbox is selected under MOVE DISCARDED MESSAGES INTO. This will ensure deleted messages go to the Deleted Mailbox folder.
  8. Now you’re done! Go back to the home screen and launch the Mail app. Your email should appear within a few minutes, depending on the number of items to sync.

Note: If you have a large mailbox, it may take several minutes before email appears. Please wait at least 15 minutes before troubleshooting.
