Email Setup on iPhone (iOS 14)

This tutorial will show you how to setup your EnGuard IMAP Email Account on an iPhone with iOS 14.

If you have MobileSync enabled for your account, please use our MobileSync Setup on iPhone (iOS 14) tutorial.

At the time of this writing, the latest iOS version is 14.2, please make sure your phone is updated to the latest version of iOS to ensure the screenshots below match.

Do not skip any steps in this tutorial. Following these instructions out of order or failing to finish each step will likely result in an error or incorrect setup. You must know your current email address and password to add your account to the native Mail app on your iPhone. We highly recommend setting up your email account when your phone is connected to Wi-Fi. If you are on 3G/4G/LTE/5G, make sure you have a strong connection while being in one place and not moving around.

Screenshots are for reference only. Please read the instructions at each step.

 

Determine Your Mail Server Address

You will use the mail server address for both incoming mail server and outgoing mail server settings when adding your email account to an iPhone. 

Step 1: Open a web browser on your computer and go to webmail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name)
For example, if your email address is bob@xyzhealth.com, you would type in webmail.xyzhealth.com
Do not use a search box (from Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.) or include http:// or https:// when entering the URL into the browser's address bar.

 

Step 2: You will automatically be redirected to your mail server.
Your mail server address is the first portion of the URL.
In this example, the mail server address is: mail.enguard.com

 

Step 3: Please write down your mail server address, you will need it to complete the steps below.

 

Step 4: Test your email address and password to see if you can login
