The iPhone is a fabulous mobile phone that comes with a built-in email program (Mail) which is similar to its namesake on the Mac OS X computers.This post tells you how to set up and add your Earthlink email address on the iPhone – detailed instructions and screenshots included.
Once the account is configured, you would be able to access it from any location as long as an active connection to the Internet is available (through WiFi or 3G).
Note: I would always suggest using IMAP email protocol to setup the Earthlink email on your iPhone.
