- Settings
- Mail, Contacts, Calendars
- Add Account
- Other
- Add Mail Account
- Enter your credentials, make sure to use username@slingshot.co.nz for Address, and the password for that account for Password. Note that Name will appear in the "From" field for sent e-mails.
- Click Save up the top
- Make sure 'IMAP' is selected at the top (so it turns blue) and enter the following information

Incoming Mail Server

Host Name: imap.slingshot.co.nz
User Name: username
Password: your-account-password

Outgoing Mail Server

Host Name: smtp.slingshot.co.nz
User Name: username
Password: your-account-password

Click 'Save' and it will verify the account. That should be all you need to do.

Good luck!

I have my slingshot imap account set-up on my mac as well as a custom POP3 email. Everything works fine, nut when transferred to my ipod, i can only connect to the custom pop3 account and not to the slingshot server…

Was wondering if anyone is able to get slingshot imap (or pop) on their iDevice…
