Use the following information to troubleshoot common issues when setting up email on an iPhone or iPad. Have an important email to send? Use our Mobile Email (mobilemail.secureserver.net) to keep in contact with customers, friends, and family.

Step 1: Make sure you can connect to Mobile Email

Connect to Mobile Email on your device and confirm that you have an account and that your username and password work. Go to mobilemail.secureserver.net and sign in.

If you can’t sign in, double-check that your email account is set up and you have the correct email address and password. You might need to contact the system administrator who set up your account. See Create my Workspace Email account for more information.

Step 2: Double-check your settings

Typing on the iPhone or iPad can be tricky; it’s easy to mistype a letter or two. Double-check that you’re using the correct incoming and outgoing servers (host names), email address, and password to connect to your email account.

 Note: Make sure your email address/username and password are saved into their respective fields, as some clients make these fields optional. This information is necessary for the client to connect to our mail servers.

Your server names might also be different than our default setup, depending on which type of email plan you have and where you purchased it.

Step 3: Reset your password

If you’ve verified that your password is correct by successfully signing in, but you still can’t set up email your iPhone, reset your Workspace Email password. (You can use the same password again.)

After resetting the password, try setting up the email account again.

Step 4: Try different SMTP ports

Typically, the SMTP ports that the iPhone and iPad use work just fine. By default, your device uses SSL and port 465 for SMTP. If you can receive email but can’t send it on your device, double-check that you’re using SSL and port 465.

Sometimes ISPs or network providers block specific ports for security reasons. If the default settings don’t work, you can try some alternate ports.

To change your iPhone or iPad SMTP port settings
  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. On the Settings screen, tap the Accounts & Password option.
  3. Tap the email account you want to change.
  4. Tap the Account
  5. Tap SMTP and select the SMTP server you want to modify.
  6. If you have Use SSL turned on, use port 465. Otherwise turn Use SSL off, and try these other ports for SMTP: 80, 3535, or 25.
  7. Go to Mail, and check to see if you can send email. If not, repeat steps 1-5 and try a different port.

Step 6: Contact customer support

If you’ve gone through these steps and still can’t get your email account to work on your device, please contact customer support. We have access to some additional tools, and there might be an issue with your email account that we can solve.
