How to set up your new email on your iPhone

Easy to follow steps below, but first…

IMAP or POP Email settings? You decide.

IMAP is the default setting for your iPhone email account, this doesn’t mean it will ‘save’ all emails to your iPhone (unless you drag them to a different folder on your phone), you will only see what is currently on the mail server.
If you have your computer email client set to POP, this is usually the last 14 or 30 days worth of emails, depending on how you set up the POP account on your computer email client.

In general, IMAP links the emails on your phone to the email server – messages that have been read/deleted/sent will show up as such on both your phone and email program.

POP will grab it’s own copy of the email from the server and keep it on your phone until you delete it. This is a good option if you use your phone or tablet more than or instead of a computer for your emails.

Deleting an email from a POP email account does not delete the email from the server or any other devices linked to that email account. Emails that have been sent from other devices will not sync with your POP email account.
