Step-by-step e-mail configuration for iPhone and iPad

If you have created an e-mail address in the Control Panel, you can configure this account on your iPhone/iPad.

E-mail account administration

Open Settings and then go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars.


Adding an e-mail account

Now select Add Account... to start the setup wizard.

Next, choose Other at the bottom of the list and then Add e-mail account.

Configuration

Enter your name for the new account. This is also the name recipients will see when you send them an e-mail.

Enter your full e-mail address and the corresponding password, that you defined in the Control Panel when setting up the e-mail address. Select Manual setup.

Then enter a name for this account. This name will be displayed in the account list.

Choosing the account type: POP3 or IMAP 

Now choose between a POP3 or IMAP account. 

Using IMAP saves your e-mails on the server. Each time you read an e-mail, a copy is downloaded from the server. 

Using POP3 downloads and saves your e-mails to your smartphone. The messages are then deleted from the server. This way, you can also read your e-mails offline at any time, for example if you are on the train. 

If you are not certain choose IMAP.

IMAP

Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.

Enter imap.mail.hostpoint.ch as IMAP server.

POP3

Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.

Enter pop.mail.hostpoint.ch as POP3 server.

Outgoing mail server 

Enter asmtp.mail.hostpoint.ch as SMTP server. 

Enter the full e-mail address in Username and the corresponding password in the field below.

This is mandatory; otherwise SMTP authentication will not work and you will not be able to send e-mails. 

 

Finish

Once you have filled in the correct information for all fields, you can check the settings by clicking Continue. Then click on Save to finish setting up the e-mail address. 

 

Encryption

Open the account you just created. Select SMTP and then Advanced.
£

Go to Advanced and check the encryption settings for the incoming mail server:

IMAP with SSL -> 993
IMAP without SSL -> 143

POP3 with SSL -> 995
POP3 without SSL -> 110



Go to SMTP and check the encryption settings for the outgoing mail server:

SMTP with SSL -> 465
SMTP without SSL -> 587
