How to synchronise your 1and1 email account with an iphone

I recently upgraded my mobile to an Iphone and might I add that it’s the best piece of mobile technology I’ve owned so far. The benefits and technology available are AMAZING!

The first thing that I wanted to do was have all my emails available whilst on the go, which was easy to do, however I couldn’t synchronise my 1and1 email account. I was able to receive but not send or reply, which I found very frustrating.

After trawling the net,ringing Apple and 1and1 I finally got it sorted and to my delight my 1and1 email account now works. After reading various posts on forums on the internet there are businesses that haven’t been able to get it working on their Iphones so I only thought it apt that I share how I did it with you.

Go into your Iphone settings Open Mail Contacts, Calendars

Click on the email address that you want to sync

There are three sections containing data on this page:

Pop account information
Incoming mail server
Outgoing mail server

Scroll down to outgoing mail server
In the white box are the letters SMTP, enter the server details if you haven’t already done so. They should start with auth.smtp.

Now click on this box containing the auth.smtp.

A new page will open detailing:

Primary server
Other SMTP Services

Both of these options need to have the following details.
host name, which starts with auth.smtp
user name, which is your 1and1 email address
password, your 1and1 password

This should be repeated for the Primary Server and Other SMTP services on that page.

These steps must be completed in order for your outgoing emails to work.

Click Done when you’re finished adding all of the information.

I’m looking to put together screen shots of how to do this.
