Once you have Activated the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync add-on and enabled Exchange ActiveSync for the specific SmarterMail mailbox, you will need to configure the iPhone to function with Exchange ActiveSync.

    • Domain name
    • Username (with @domainname.com)
    • Password
    • Description (Optional)
  6. Tap Next.
  7. After a moment, the iPhone will ask for the server information. This is the URL to your webmail. For example, mail.example.com. NOTE: Do not include http:// when entering the server information.
  8. Tap Next.
  9. If your webmail does not support SSL, the following message will display: "Exchange account verification failed."
    • Tap Next and then tap Save. Complete step 10 of these setup instructions.
    • After step 10, edit the account you just added.
    • Tap Account Info.
