Tutorial: How to setup Rogers mail account on iPhone, iPad and iPod

Some people are having a lot of issues getting this to work, so I'm going to guide you through a few easy steps to get it working flawlessly. Its easier than you think!

Step 1: Open the settings app on either your iPhone iPad or iPod (its all the same)

Step 2: Scroll down until you find "Mail, Contacts, Calenders", tap it.

Step 3: Tap on "Add Account", You should see a list of a few providers such as Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, at the bottom you should find "Other", Tap on that.

Step 4: Go into "Add Mail Account". In that, enter all your Rogers info and tap on "Next" in the top right corner.

Step 5: Now you have it set up but you will get an error message when you open the mail app. To fix this, go back to the main settings menu and tap on "Mail, Contacts, Calenders" again.

Step 6: You should see the account you just added, tap on that. Now you should see an "Incoming mail server" box. Tap on the "Host Name" and delete every thing it says.
(There's no need to delete anything else except the "Host Name" field.

Step 7:
In the "Host Name" field that you deleted, replace it with this: pop.broadband.rogers.com

Step 8: Scroll down until you see the outgoing server which is named "SMTP". Delete everything in that field too. Now replace it with this: smtp.broadband.rogers.com

Now you can exit out of everything and your emails should load properly in your Mail app. If your having any issues please feel free to comment below, I would be glad to help you.
