Check Your Email On The Go (Part Three)

Part One and Two showed you how to configure your BigRock hosted email on your Android and iPhone. Read on to know how to configure your email on your iPad 🙂

1. Tap Settings on your iPad home screen. If you have installed additional apps from Apple’s App Store, this button may be located on a different home screen than the one pictured. By default, it is on your main home screen.

2. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

3. If you have already configured an email account on your iPad, you will need to tap Add Account…. If you have not yet configured any email accounts on your iPad, skip to the next step.

4. Tap Other at the bottom of the list.

5. Tap Add Mail Account.

6. Enter in the information requested.

Name – Enter your name as you want it to appear on outgoing messages.

Address – Enter your full email address.

Password – Enter your email password.

Description – Enter a title to identify this account on your phone.

When you’ve entered all the appropriate information, tap Save.

7. Choose either IMAP or POP. Choosing IMAP will keep messages in sync between your iPad and your other devices. Choosing POP will provide you with slightly faster download times, but your messages will not be synchronized with your other devices.

8. Configure the Incoming Mail Server settings:

If you are using IMAP, use the following settings:

Host Name – Enter imap.your-domain-name (example – ‘imap.barber.net’ for the domain name – barber.net)

User Name – Enter your full email address.

Password – Enter your email password.

If you are using POP, use the following settings:

Host Name: Enter pop.your-domain-name (example – ‘pop.barber.net’ for the domain name – barber.net)

User Name: Enter your complete email address.

Password: Enter your email password.

9. Configure the Outgoing Mail Server settings:

Host Name: Enter smtp.your-domain-name (example – ‘smtp.barber.net’ for the domain name – barber.net)

User Name: Enter your complete email address.

Password: Enter your email password.

10. Tap the Next when you are finished. If you encounter an error message which says Secure Connection Failed, simply tap Continue.

11. Your iPad will now attempt to verify the details that you entered. Be patient, this step could take a little bit of time.

12. IMAP users should select ON to enable mail synchronization. Then click Save.

13. After your iPad has verified the account details that you provided, your account will be listed in the configuration section under Mail, Contacts, Calendar in the Settings app. You can change the behavior of your mailbox by tapping the account name you just created and by changing the other options displayed.

Stay tuned for Part Three of this series where we’ll show you how to configure email on your BlackBerry 🙂
