Older Versions of iPhone

Although most email settings are identical, the iPhone requires a special setting for the incoming and outgoing mail servers. Instead of using the defaults that are typically used in the email settings replace mail.yourdomain.com with yourservername.bartwebsites.com

  1. Press the Home button and select Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  2. Under Accounts, select Add Account...
  3. Select Other.
  4. Enter your name (which will show in the from field) and your full email address.
  5. Enter your email password and description (we recommend the full email address as your description).
  6. Press Save.
  7. Select IMAP or POP (what is the difference?)
  8. Under Incoming Mail Server, enter yourservername.bartwebsites.com as the Host Name.
  9. Enter the full email address as your User Name.
  10. Enter your email password and then scroll down.
  11. Enter the same information under Outgoing Mail Server.
  12. Press Save.

You are now ready to send and receive emails via your iPhone.
