IMAP, SMTP, POP3 Settings For Your iPhone Email Accounts

Email on a smartphoneIf you want to setup your email account on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch then you need to know your incoming mail server (IMAP) and your outgoing mail server (SMTP).

If your have the choice always use IMAP as it is the more modern, flexible, and secure option.

If you are having difficulties getting IMAP to work then try the POP3 settings as your incoming mail server instead.

Some email providers may also need the port number which I have also provided.
