Title: How to set up email on an iPad
This video will show you step by step how to set up your 123-reg mailbox on your iPad.
If you wish to set up your iPad with another provider’s mailbox then simply find out and swap in their details when we mention ours.
Ok, let’s get started
Step one: Grab your iPad and tap on the Settings icon.
Step two: Scroll down and tap on Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then Add Account, Other and then Add Mail Account.
Step three: You will now need to enter your Name, Email address, Email address password and a description for the email account, say work for example.
Step four: You can now choose to set up the mailbox with IMAP or POP. For more information about the two protocols check out this video. We recommend that you use IMAP for your iPad.
Step five: Once you have chosen between POP and IMAP you will need to enter the Host Name.
For 123-reg this will be imap.123-reg.co.uk
Now enter your User Name. This is just the email address you wish to set up.
And now your email address password.
This will make it possible for you to receive emails from your 123-reg mailbox.
Now to set up the outgoing mail server.
The 123-reg Host Name for this is smtp.123-reg.co.uk
The User Name is your email address again and the Password is your email address password.
Once you have entered these settings tap the Next button.
Step six: Once the settings have verified make sure mail is switched on and then tap Save.
Well that’s it; if you now tap on Mail you will see your 123-reg mailbox added and will be able to start sending and receiving emails straight away.
