The Apple iPhone has a built-in "Mail" application that is capable of sending and receiving e-mails using any account that you set up. If you have an Excite e-mail account that you would like to use with your iPhone, all you have to do is insert the proper credentials into the iPhone's mail-catching software. This requires the use of the device's general settings application.
Tap "Settings" on your iPhone menu.
Tap "Mail, Contacts, Calendars."
Choose "Add Account ...," followed by "Other," followed by "Add Mail Account."
Type your Excite e-mail user name into the "Name" box. Type the URL you use to log into your Excite e-mail account into the "Address" box. Type your Excite Mail password into the "Password" box. Type a description of this account (for example, "Excite Mail") into the "Description" box. Tap "Next." Your Excite Mail account is now set up on your iPhone.
