MobileSync Setup on iPhone (iOS 16)

This tutorial will show you how to setup your EnGuard email account as MobileSync for Push Email and Syncing of Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and Notes with our Webmail to an iPhone with iOS 16.

You must be subscribed to our Enterprise Plan or have a MobileSync License from us, otherwise this tutorial will not work for your iPhone. If you are on our Enterprise Plan and need us to enable MobileSync for your account, please email our support team before setting up your iPhone.

If you do not have MobileSync, please use the Email Setup on iPhone (iOS 16) tutorial instead.

At the time of this writing, the latest iOS version is 16.4, 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

If you are unable to login, please ask your administrator to provide you with the correct information.
