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.

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.
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.
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."
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.
