Secure E-mail Account Setup On The Apple iPhone

If you have email hosting with WebsiteExpress, then you can take advantage of our secure email hosting services for your Apple iPhone device. A secure email account will give you an encrypted connection to and from the server so that your password and data is secured during transmission over the internet. This will prevent anyone who may be monitoring your internet connection from viewing your email account details. This is especially useful on public wifi connections such as what you would find at a coffee shop or a hotel. Please follow the instructions below to set up a secure WebsiteExpress email account for your domain name on an Apple iPhone.

Here are the settings to quickly connect your iPhone device.

Encryption Type: SSL
Incoming IMAP Port: 993
Incoming Server: mail.SecureWebExpress.com
Outgoing SMTP Port: 465
Outgoing Server: mail.SecureWebExpress.com

You can also follow the in depth image tutorial below.


Tap on your Settings icon.


Select the Mail, Contacts, Calendars section.

Select Other mail account.


Tap Add Mail Account.


Fill in the account information.
