Step 7

When using a mobile device, we recommend using IMAP.  This will give you greater flexibility sharing information between your various devices.  You should now be able to enter your various email server settings, and the screen will look similar to this:

IMAP Tab

Incoming mail server

Lets now enter the INCOMING MAIL SERVER settings.  These settings control your ability to receive email on your device.

  • Change your Host Name to mail.livemail.co.uk.
  • Enter the email address, e.g. [email protected], for the Username.
  • Enter the Password will be the same you entered earlier.
You shouldn't need to enter any port information as iOS normally handles this for you, but if you need them for troubleshooting you should use 993 for an IMAP account or 995 for a POP account.

Inbound PW

Outgoing mail server

Lets now enter the OUTGOING MAIL SERVER settings.  These settings control your ability to send email from your device.

  • Enter smtp.livemail.co.uk as your Host Name.
  • Enter the email address, e.g. [email protected], for the Username.
  • Enter the Password.
You shouldn't need to enter any port information as iOS normally handles this for you, but if you need to know for troubleshooting then you should use port 465.

Outbound PW

and finally...

Press Next

Your device will then Verify the settings.  This can take a couple of minutes.

Verify

Once everything has been verified, press the Save button to save your new account.
