Email Setup Anyone?

Setting up email for your custom domain on both Android and iOS devices typically involves configuring your email client (e.g., Gmail, Apple Mail) with the correct incoming and outgoing server settings. Here’s a step-by-step guide for both platforms:

  3. Select “IMAP” or “POP3”: Choose between IMAP (recommended) or POP3 as your email protocol. IMAP allows you to sync your emails across multiple devices, while POP3 downloads emails to a single device.
  4. Enter Your Email Address: Type in your full custom domain email address (e.g.,

  8. Advanced Settings (Optional): Depending on your email provider, you may need to configure additional settings such as authentication method and sync frequency. Most email providers have guides for these settings.
  9. Account Name and Description: Give your account a name and description (e.g., “Work Email” or “Personal Email”).
  10. Complete the Setup: Once you’ve entered all the required information, tap “Next” or “Done” to complete the setup. Your custom domain email should now be configured on your Android device.

Setting Up Email on iOS:

  1. Open Settings: On your iOS device, open the “Settings” app.
  2. Scroll Down and Tap “Mail”: In the Settings menu, scroll down to find “Mail” and tap on it.
  3. Add Account: Tap “Accounts” (iOS 15 and later) or “Add Account” (iOS 14 and earlier).
  4. Select Your Email Provider: Choose “Other” if your email provider isn’t listed (for custom domains).
  5. Add Email Account Details:
    • Enter your name.
    • Enter your full custom domain email address (e.g.,
    • Enter the email account password.
    • You can add a description if desired.
  6. Incoming Mail Server:

    • Username: Your full email address.
    • Password: Your email account password.
  7. Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):
    • Hostname:
    • Username: Your full email address.

Your custom domain email should now be set up and accessible through the Mail app on your iOS device.
