One nice feature of the Apple Mail app on iOS and Mac is that you can add several different types of email accounts to it. This lets you manage your inbox and send emails from every account you have, all in one spot.
If you haven’t set up additional accounts yet, we’re here to help. Here’s how to add an email account to the Mail app on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Add an email account to the Mail app on iPhone and iPad
1) Open the Settings app and head to Mail.
2) Tap Accounts and pick Add Account.
3) Select the type of account you would like to add from options like iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, Google, Yahoo, AOL, or Outlook. You can also choose Other to set it up manually.
4) Follow the prompts to sign in using your account. The steps here will depend on the type of account you choose.
5) Once signed in, make sure the switch for Mail is green and tap Save.
Now open the Mail app, and you’ll see the account listed under Mailboxes.
