Set up email on iPhone


Being able to send and receive email on the go without having access to your laptop or desktop computer can be invaluable, especially if you're waiting for an important business email. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use your Email account on your iPhone so you can check, send, and receive email on the go. Get started!

Please note that this tutorial assumes that you have created the email account in your cPanel first. If you have not already done so, please do so before reading further. Detailed instructions can be found in our guide to the Management of email accounts in cPanel.

You will need the following configuration data to set up your email account:

The name of the email account (this is usually the name of the account, e.g. support@meinedomain.ch).
The email password (you have created in cPanel)
IMAP/POP server mail.mydomain.ch (replace mydomain.ch with your domain)
IMAP/POP port (IMAP port: 993 POP3 port: 995)
SMTP server mail.mydomain.ch (replace mydomain.ch with your domain)
SMTP port (SMTP port: 465)

If you are an ORC web hosting customer and use our email services, you can find the above details in the email "Your web hosting access data". It contains the essential information about your hosting account with us.

You can also find the configuration details for your email in your cPanel account by navigating to the EMAIL > Email Accounts > Connect Devices section.
