Email setup on your iPhone 6 can appear to be a difficult task, but it's actually a simple process. This tutorial will walk you through the process of configuring email on your iPhone 6.

If you are unsure what your email settings are, you can find them with our Email Configuration tool.

How to Configure iPhone 6 for Email

  1. iphone6 start screen

    Unlock your iPhone 6 so that you can see the icons on the screen.

  2. iphone6 start screen

    Look for your Settings icon. Click on it to start.

  3. Change mail settings

    Look for the icon labeled Mail,Contacts, Calendars.

  4. Add account

    Next, click on Add Account. It will be near the top of the screen in the section labeled "Accounts".

  5. Add account

    Choose Other in order to add a InMotion Hosting email account.

  6. Add account

    Strangely, you will see yet another option that asks you to Add Mail Account. Click on this option to proceed.

  7. Add account

    You will then be asked to fill in the information for your email account. This includes your name, your email address, password and a description of the mail account.

  8. Email server settings

    After you fill in your information, the next screen includes the settings for both the incoming and outgoing mail server. Go here to find help with your email settings. Use the settings in the mail article to fill in each section.

  9. Cannot verify warning

    After you fill in each section for the incoming and outgoing server, your phone will attempt to verify the server. If you see this warning, please click on Details. You will then see the details for the certificate in use. Make sure to select to trust the certificate. The certificate is a self-signed certificate used by email server. The certificate information should show that it is coming from your mail server. If it is, then click the options to trust the certificate and then your iPhone will be able to confirm the server.

  10. Save screen

    You will briefly see a screen checking off everything for the email account followed by a screen which has sliders for enabling Mail and Notes. At the top of the screen will be options to Cancel or Save. Click on Save to proceed with adding your email account.

Congratulations, you have completed the configuration of email for your iPhone 6! Note that this applies to both IMAP or POP3 protocols. When you have completed the email setup, return to the main screen of your iPhone and click on the Mail icon. You will see the account in the Mail-boxes section listed by your email description. Here's how it looks on my iPhone 6:

When I try to add an email account to my iphone 6S I press SETTINGS but instead of seeing MAIL, CONTACTS, CALENDAR on the screen I only see details of my present email address with no way of adding another.  How do reach the correct screen?

Hello Tony,

Thank you for contacting us. I tested the steps on an iPhone 6s, and confirmed they are accurate.

What version of ios are you running on your iPhone?

Hello umesh,

Thank you for contactingus. You should reply from the specific address you want to use by authenticating with the username/password for that address.

Hello Srikanth,

Is there an error when you try send an outbound email? With the outgoing mail server settings are you authenticating with the server? It is usually a hidden setting somewhere. Also you may want to contact our support team if you host on our servers so we can view the logs when you try to send an outbound email.

Best Regards,
TJ Edens
