How do I set up email on the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad?

You can configure any USFamily.net email account directly on the iPhone or the iPod Touch. You will simply need the standard email account information: username, password, and the incoming and outgoing mail server host information for your domain, e.g. mail.usgo.net, details will vary slightly for our other hosting plans.

1. If this is the first account you're setting up on the iPhone or the iPod Touch, tap Mail. Otherwise, from the Home screen choose Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Accounts and choose Add Account....
