When finished, tap Next.

Choose IMAP or POP.

Both POP (Post Office Protocol) and IMAP (Internet Message access protocol) allow people to get access to their email from the remote server.

POP downloads email to your computer.  This is great if you’re only reading email on one device, because you can set it to delete email from the server once it’s downloaded, which frees up space in your hosting.

If you’re reading email on more than one device though, IMAP is the better way to go.  The emails stay on the server until you manually delete or move them from the server. But if you read an email from one device, it will show as read on all the others.  If you delete on one device, it will delete from all the others. Anything you do on one device will replicate on the others.

Next, enter your Incoming Mail Server settings.  Host Name will be mail.yourdomain.com, User Name is your email address, and Password is your Email Password.  Outgoing Mail Server will be the same.  Tap Save.
