Step 3.
Select either IMAP (recommended) or POP for your mail server. Below you will be required to enter the Host Name (ex: mail.example.com), Username (your full email address) and Password for both the incoming and outgoing mail servers.

Important: iOS may suggest that these fields are optional, however they are required when adding your hosted email. Please be sure to add your username and password for both mail servers.

Step 4.
Click Next to proceed. If you are presented with a pop-up message that reads Cannot Connect Using SSL. It will ask you if you want to try setting up the account without SSL. Select NO and review your settings. Entering information more than 3 times incorrectly will result in being blocked, should this happen please email me or call me and I will walk you through it
