How to Set Up E-mail on an iPhone

Among the conveniences Apple's iPhone affords is the ability to access your e-mail with a single touch anywhere you have mobile service or an Internet connection. You can use your iPhone to read, compose and delete e-mails, as well as to search for any message you haven't yet deleted from a given account. Setting up e-mail accounts on your iPhone to access this functionality is simple and something you need to do only once for each account.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Write down your e-mail credentials if you don't already have them memorised. For the iPhone, you simply need your e-mail address and password.

  2. 2

    Navigate to the iPhone's "Add Account" menu. Tap the "Settings" button, then scroll down to the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" option and tap it. Tap the "Add Account" button and tap a choice from the list of e-mail providers the iPhone presents--Microsoft Exchange, MobileME, Gmail, Yahoo! and AOL--or "Other" if you don't use any of these services.

  3. 3

    Input your login credentials. Enter a display name of your choice, then your e-mail username or password. The latter two must match your e-mail account exactly; the first need not. Give your account a description so that you can recognise it when you access your e-mail. Tap the "Save" button."

  4. 4

    Check your e-mail to check the success of your set-up. Tap the "Mail" button--and the name of your account from the list using its description, if you have more than one e-mail account set-up. Wait for messages to begin showing up in your inbox, at which point you'll know you've been successful.
