iOS Automatic Email Setup

iOS Automatic Email Setup
(iPhone, iPad, iPod)

 


iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) have the ability to automatically configure your email settings. Not only will it set up your email account, but it will also sync your calendar and contacts to your email account with us. This is beneficial because you can check your calendar and contacts from any computer, restore and lost information, and share the information between other devices.

  1. On your Apple device, open Safari and navigate to webmail.ruraltel.net. The website will automatically detect your  device and give you the option to either Download the profile or to Access webmail. Tap on Download the profile.


    NOTE: By tapping on Access webmail, you will be logged in to your email account but it will not be set up on your Apple device for future use.


     

  2. You should now have a screen that is asking to enter your Email address and Password. Once you enter those, tap Get My iOS Profile.


  3. An Install Profile window should come up. Tap on Install to start the installation.


  4. On the Unsigned Profile box that pops up, tap Install Now.




  5. If you have a passcode set up on your Apple device, you will be prompted to enter your passcode. Enter it now. If you do not have a passcode set up, you can skip this step.


  6. You will now have a Profile Installed window. Tap Done in the upper right.

To Remove the mailbox after using the Automatic Set up feature.  

 If you want to remove an email account after using the Automatic option you will find that option under profiles as calDAV profile, rather than under Mail, Contacts, Calendars as you would expect. 

On your iOS device, go to Settings->General->Profiles and then delete calDAV Mail, Contacts and Calendars profiles
