The error will appear twice (once for incoming and once for outgoing), please be sure to click continue both times.

11. For IMAP or POP ensure Mail is set to “On” and for Exchange use the sliders next to Mail, Contacts, Calendars to select which items you wish to synchronize.

12. Click Save.

13. If you are exited to the settings page for the account, open it up once more. Under Outgoing Mail Server click on the SMTP.  Then click on the Primary Server. You will want to turn “Use SSL” ON if it is off and change the Server Port to 465.  Click Done,  then Account in the Upper left hand corner then Done again.

14. If you are exited to the settings page for the account, open it up once more. Under Outgoing Mail Server click on the Advanced.  You will want to turn “Use SSL” ON if it is off and change the Server Port to 993.

15. You will want to make sure your Mailbox Behaviors are also set to use the folders on relative folders “On The server” not “On My Iphone”

16. Click Done,  then Account in the Upper left hand corner then Done again.

14. You can now click on the home button on the bottom of the iPhone then click on mail. Your iPhone will connect to the server and update mail. Remember this can take a few seconds if not a minute or two if you are on a mobile network. It is always quicker if you can connect to Wifi.
