After setting up an IMAP or POP account on your iPhone®, you can enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to prevent third-parties from potentially viewing your email messages. This article's screenshots use iPhone firmware 3.1.2, but previous versions use the same settings.
NOTE: iPod Touch users may also use these settings, but must connect via Wi-Fi to send and receive email.
BEFORE YOU START: To set up your iPhone with your email, you need to know your POP or IMAP Email Server Settings and ports. To find them, got to the Email Setup Center and write down the information that displays under Email Server Settings.
You may need to restart your iPhone for the changes to take effect.
