How To Set Up Your Ponder Consulting Hosted Email On Your iPhone

November 2, 2012

If you are an iPhone owner and would like to stay connected by accessing your email via your iPhone, here is how to do it.

Setting Up Your iPhone

To setup your email use these settings:

Click on Settings
Click on Mail, Contacts and Calendar
Select Other (not iCloud, Exchange, etc.)
Click Add Mail Account

Name: Your Name As You Would have It Appear (in recipients inbox)
Email: user@yourdomainname.com (always enter the full address)
Password: your password (case sensitive)
Description: Your Email Description (example Jane’s Email)

Click Next
On next screen be sure to select the “POP” tab rather than “IMAP”

Name: Your Name
Email: user@yourdomainname.com (always enter the full address)
Description: Your Email Description (example Jane’s Email)

Incoming Mail Server
port: 110 (always)
POP or IMAP? POP will download email to your local device whereas IMAP will be viewing the files on the server. The important thing to understand is if you use IMAP and delete a file, it is deleted from the server or if you move a folder, it is moved on the server. For this reason, we prefer POP. POP also provides a backup of what is on the server.
host name: mail.yourdomainname.com (example mail.ponderconsulting.com)
username: user@yourdomainname.com (always enter the full address)
password: your password (case sensitive)

Outgoing Mail Server (this is not optional as it says)
port: 587 (26 can also be used but new standards are 587)
host name: mail.yourdomainname.com (example mail.ponderconsulting.com)
username: user@yourdomainname.com (always enter the full address)
password: your password (case sensitive)

Click Save

You will see a “Cannot Verify Server Identity” error message but click Continue anyway (may have to select Continue multiple times).

Congratulations! Your email should work!

You can always check your email at www.domainname.com/webmail or pon.ponderconsulting.com:2096.
