On the first "New Account" screen, enter the following:

  • Name - This is what will appear to people when you send them email.
  • Address - Your full email address.  Careful typing here.  A single letter mistake will cause this whole exercise to fail.
  • Password - Your email account password.  Upper and lower case matter. Be doubly careful here.  Since dots replace what you type, you can't easily see mistakes.
  • Description - This is what will show up in your Email Inboxes list on the email screen.
When you have all the information entered, tap the "Next" button at the top right.

The 3 images above are separate sections of a single screen on your iPhone.

Double check your entries, and then tap the "Next" button at the upper right of the screen.

After tapping "Next" you should briefly see a verification screen, and then be taken to the screen shown in the next slide.  If verification fails, you have made a mistake typing one of the entries above, and you'll need to correct things before continuing.
