- Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendars - Add Account - Other - Add Mail Account - Enter your credentials, make sure to use firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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…
