How to Connect your WPX Email Account with iOS Mail


In this article, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to connect your WPX Email account to your iOS Mail application. You can set up your Email Account in 4 simple steps.

If you don't have an email account with us, or you don't know the settings for your current email account, please check this article in our knowledge base first.


Step 1:

Adding a New Account

To begin with, go to Settings on your phone and find the Mail menu;


You will be taken to your Mail Preferences screen where you can adjust various options for your iOS Mail accounts. Select Accounts to proceed;


Here, you will see a list of all the different accounts you have registered, including iCloud, Facebook, Vimeo, etc. Scroll down and select the Add Account option. And then select Other;



After that, select Add Mail Account;

 

Step 2:
Account Settings

1. Enter your Full Name, or as you would like it to appear on your sent email.,
2. Enter your Email Address,
3. Enter your email account's Password,
4. Add Discription,
5. Click Next.

 

Step 3:
Incoming Mail Server Info

When entering the information for your Incoming Mail Server, you will need to decide if you would like to use POP3 or IMAP. Choosing POP3 will download and remove all the emails from our server, whereas choosing IMAP will synchronize the emails between your email client(s) and our server. We recommend using IMAP if you will be using this email account with multiple devices since they will all synchronise.

Step 4:
