Setting Up Email On Your Mobile Device With cPanel




1. Find your account’s specific email settings using cPanel:

Log into your site’s cPanel, click Email Accounts, and select Configure Mail Client on the right hand side under the Functions menu. This page lists all of the manual settings you will need below.

2. Browse to your mobile device’s email setup page:

For iPhone, click here. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4810
For BlackBerry, click here. http://us.blackberry.com/support/blackberry101/setup.jsp#tab_tab_email
For Palm, click here. http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/na/deviceselector/page_en.html

3. Enter your account settings:

Many mobile devices, including the iPhone and Blackberry, have SSL turned on by default.
Secure SSL Settings:

If your mobile device is configured to use SSL, your settings are as follows:

Mail Server Username: yourname+trohg.org or youremail@yourdomain.com
Yourname=youremail part of this example: youremail@yourdomain.com
Incoming Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com
*POP3 uses port is 995, IMAP uses 993
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com, (server requires authentication) port 465
Standard Settings:

If your mobile device does not support SSL or you don’t need to use a secure connection, set your device like so:

Mail Server Username: yourname+yourdomain.com or youremail@yourdomain.com
Yourname=youremail part of this example: youremail@yourdomain.com
Incoming Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com
*POP3 uses port is 110, IMAP uses 143
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.yourdomain.com, (server requires authentication) port25

Common Problems:

“Certificate Not Valid”
This means SSL is turned on. Try using the SSL settings above for both your incoming and outgoing mail servers.

Authentication Error When Sending Email
Most outgoing mail servers require authentication. Be sure to select this option and enter your email password.

I Can Receive But Not Send
Some ISPs block port 25 for standard settings. Try enabling SSL and using the SSL settings above for your outgoing mail server.
