Apple recently released iOS version 11 for iPad and iPhone. Among many new features and increased performance there are some asthetic changes as well. In order to be able to send/receive messages with the email accounts you create with your domain, you will need to configure the iOS Mail App accordingly. Following the instructions below, you will learn how to add an email account to your iOS 11 device.

Adding a Mail Account in iOS 11

If you want to send and receive email using the iOS 11 Mail App, you simply need to add your email account to the device's list of Accounts. Although similar to iOS 10, the steps below will guide you through the updated interface to add a Mail Account.

  1. Settings icon highlighted from home screen

    From your home screen, find the Settings icon and tap on it to open it.

  2. Settings: Account & Passwords option highlighted

    Scroll to locate the Acconts & Passwords menu option and tap on it to proceed.

  3. Accounts & Passwords: Add Account option highlighted

    Tap on Add Account.

  4. Add Acounts: Other option highlighted

    Tap to select Other as the category of account to add.

  5. Other: Add Mail Account option highlighted

    Tap on Add Mail Account to continue.

  8. New Account: IMAP tab selected and highlighted

    At this point, you can select which protocol to use to access your email. IMAP is selected by default, however, if you want to use POP, then you can tap on the POP tab. We use IMAP in our example, as that is recommended.

  9. New Account IMAP: Incoming Server Host Name field highlighted

    Enter the Host Name for the Incoming Mail Server.

  10. New Account IMAP: Incoming Server User Name field highlighted

    Enter the FULL email address in the User Name field for the Incoming Mail Server.

    The Password field for the Incoming Mail Server should contain the password you entered from the previous screen.

    Enter the Host Name for the Outgoing Mail Server.

  13. New Account IMAP: Outgoing Server User Name field highlighted

    Enter the FULL email address in the User Name field for the Outgoing Mail Server.

  14. New Account IMAP: Outgoing Server Password field highlighted

    Enter the password associated with the email address in the Password field for the Outgoing Mail Server.

  15. New Account IMAP: Next button highlighted at top right

    Confirm all your settings are entered correctly, then proceed by tapping on Next at the top right.

  16. IMAP: Save button highlighted at top right

    Your iOS 11 device will proceed to verify a secure connection with the settings entered. When successful, the next screen will allow you to add this account to your device's additional Apps (if applicable). If you would like to setup the additional account(s), simply tap on the toggle switch to enable them. By default, Mail is enabled (since we are setting up a Mail account), so you can proceed to tap on Save at the top right.

Congratulations! Now that you have added your email account to the Mail App in iOS 11, you can begin to send and receive emails from your device. If you are interested in accessing Webmail through cPanel's new iOS App, be sure to check out our guide to learn How to Set Up cPanel App for iOS 11.
