You can get Telus email on your iPhone through either IMAP or POP3. I would suggest using IMAP because it helps keeping the accounts on your mobile phone, computer(s) and the remote server synchronized. Here is how you go about setting it up on the cell phone.
Instructions: Telus on the iPhone
The iPhone mobile phone has an inbuilt email application aptly named “Mail“. This is similar to the one available on Mac desktops. To configure the email account on the iPhone, you need to know the login information and the Telus incoming and outgoing mail settings.
- Go to the “Settings” section [Slide 1].
- Scroll down and locate “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” and tap on it [Slide 2].
- Tap “Add Account [Slide 3].
- Since Telus service is not listed, tap “Other” [Slide 4].
- Choose “Add Mail Account” [Slide 5].
- Enter your name, Telus email address, account password and a short description that will identify this email on the iPhone [Slide 6]. Tap “Save” when done.
- The mobile phone will now start ‘looking up account information’ [Slide 7].
- Helpfully, the iPhone puts in the Telus email settings (incoming and outgoing servers). [Slide 8].
- Tap the “Save” button and the device now connects to the internet to verify the information [Slide 9].
- If the login details are correct, you’ll find the Telus email account set up on the iPhone [Slide 10].
Note #1: You can set up multiple email addresses on the iPhone. Just remember to give each of these a unique descriptive name.
Note #2: The Telus email on the iPhone has been set up using the IMAP protocol. This is probably a better bet that POP3. Read the differences between IMAP and POP3 if you want to know more.
Finally, you can also get Telus on iPhone directly in the web browser of the mobile phone (Safari). Go to Mobile.Telus.net, enter the username and password and login to Telus webmail designed especially for small devices like cell phones.
