How to Set Up an Email Account on Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch

Email Account Configuration for iOS

It seems like everyone nowadays has an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch that they use to access their emails. As it turns out, one of the most popular questions we have from our clients now is “How do I setup my email account on my mobile device?”

This can be confusing for new iOS users, so we created article to show step-by-step you how to manually configure your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with your JVF Consulting email account(s) using the preferred POP3 protocol.

Since JVF relies on Liquid Web for our hosting, the steps we follow are specific to their requirements. If you do not use Liquid Web for your email routing, the following settings may not work for you, so beware.

Set Up an Account Manually

  1. From the home screen click on Settings.
  2. Next, tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  3. In the Accounts section, tap Add Account.
  4. Choose “Other” as your email account type.

    Step 7


    • Incoming Mail Server (POP)
      Host Name:
      User Name:
      Password: Passwords are case sensitive. If you do not know your password, you can reset it from the web-mail portal located at:
      SSL: On
      Port: 995
    • Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)
      Host Name:
      User Name:

      Port: 587

To update the port number, select the account and then click Outgoing Mail Server. Click on the Primary server, then change the Server Port from 587 to 465 and then press Done.


    Step 8

Set Up Complete

Once verified, you will have a fully configured POP email account on your Apple iOS device. To send and receive messages, navigate to your email application.

    I just replaced my old smartphone with an Ipod and I set up my email accts but I had some sort of a problem with the connection. It didn’t seem up right. What i did is I deleted the connection and followed your instructions and I made it right. Thanks.

  • I think that this is the best tutorial I have ever seen, Now I have learned how to setup the email and have even started using it.

  • Not that much harder than setting up a fresh pop/email account in Thuderbird or Outlook Express.

    You gotta know your user/pass and smtp settings. 🙂


  • Hi,

    I happened to come across your website while searching for Step-by-step instructions on how to add or setup an email account on your iPhone.

    Even though I was not planning on connecting to Liquid Web, I found your instructions very helpful and useful, and thought I’d let you know.


  • I love iphone for checking my emails and for having all the emails organised when ever I am on the run.
