These are the steps to setup a POP3 mail account on your iPhone.

1. Add email account on iPhone.

  • If this is the first account you are setting up on this iPhone, tap Mail and then select Other.

2. Enter account information.

Select POP and then add the following information:

  • Name: The user’s Display Name.
