iOS 15 - Setup New Device

The purpose of this page is to describe how to set up an OlympusNet email account on an iOS device.
If you’ve earlier set up an account and run into problems or need to make changes to an existing account, go to iOS 15 - Change Settings.
The instructions below are for an iPhone using IMAP . IMAP is preferred over POP for portable devices such as phones and tablets.
The email setup for iPads is similar to iPhones.

Domain customers use username@your-domain.com wherever janedoe@olympus.net appears.

  1. Select the Settings icon in the Home screen, then select Mail.
    Settings

  2. Left arrow back to the Mail dialog box and select Accounts.
    Mail

  3. In the Accounts dialog box, select Add Account.
    Accounts

  4. In the Add Account dialog box, select Other.
    Add Account

  5. In the Add Account dialog box, select Add Mail Account.
    Add Account

  6. In the New Account dialog box, enter your name, email address, password, then select Next.
    New Account

  7. In the second New Account window that just opened, enter the fields for the Incoming (IMAP) and Outgoing (SMTP) mail servers.
    All of the fields are required; none are optional.
    The Incoming and Outgoing Host Name for username@olympus.net is: mail.userservices.net.
    The Incoming and Outgoing Host Name for username@your-domain.com is: mailc11.megamailservers.com.
    Tip: If you plan to set up more than one account, use the Description field to give each a different name.
    For example, for a two account setup, the first account might be be described as Olympus janedoe with a second account named Olympus johndoe. The Description fields are free format.
  8. Inspect the spelling of the legible fields (the fields with readable characters, not the password fields with dots) for typos and correct as needed. Then inspect the legible fields again. Then select Next.
    The device will verify that it can connect to both the Incoming (IMAP) and Outgoing (SMTP) mail servers.
  9. If the verification fails your goal is to save the settings you’ve already entered, then correct the errors. That way you won’t have to reenter all the fields again.
    If the error Cannot Connect Using SSL appears, select Yes. You’ll be guided to enable SSL later. If other errors pop up select OK or Save, then either attempt to correct the error or back out using the left facing arrow. If given the option to Save, take it.
  10. If you need to correct errors or enable SSL per the error Cannot Connect Using SSL, follow the instructions at iOS 15 - Change Settings either now or later. Enabling SSL is important as it encrypts the connection between your desktop and the mail server.
