    Note:

    You may be given a warning that your device cannot connect via SSL or that it cannot be verified

    The reason this warning comes up is because your device may be attempting to connect to our shared mail server via an SSL connection using your domain name rather than the name which the SSL certificate belongs to.

    If this warning comes up, you may simply press continue.

    For more information about this warning, read our SSL certificate on shared email service article.

The iPhone/iPad is known for automatically using some default settings which may cause you some problems. Continue with the steps below to ensure that the settings on your device are manually set correctly.
