Setting up Pop3 email on an iPhone


You've signed up for a POP3 email account, but you can't be tied down to your office computer? We can relate! So we've decided to write up a guide that can help all of you iPhone users access your POP3 mail on the go!

By now I'm sure most iPhone users have played around with most of their settings and probably added a mail account or two, right? If its been a generic account like Gmail then most of the settings were automatically filled in for you, so let's begin with getting your POP3 Mailbox information into your iPhone.


Access your Settings button from the iPhone home screen (or wherever you may have placed it) and access the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" link.

Most likely you'll see any other accounts that you
may have created, so go ahead and click "Add Account".

Click Other and then add mail account,
then we'll finally get to do some configuration.

Be sure to select the POP setting at the top, commonly IMAP is the default setting for a new account on the iPhone. Here you'll enter in your basic account credentials: Your name, your full email address, and your POP3 password. Once you've gotten that entered, hit save.

Now you need to tell your iPhone what server you're going to be operating on.
For the Incoming Mail Server information you'll want to place:
POP3 server: mail.yourdomain.com
Username: username@yourdomain.com
Password: your_pop3_password

Now that you've gotten your Incoming Server
configured let's work on the Outgoing Server.
For the Outgoing server settings:
Outbound server: mail.yourdomain.com
Username: username@yourdomain.com
Password: your_pop3_password

Now we need to configure the ports for your servers, so lets get back into the Mail Settings and click on our New account. First off lets go to the Outgoing Mail server, click on the SMTP option and click on the Primary server which should be mail.yourdomain.com

The Default should be SSL on with Port 995 but you can
also set this to SSL off with port 110 if you wanted to.

That should take of everything now! Now back out to your home screen and access your mail application. Whoa, I hope those aren't all from people reading the guide...
