In this chapter we're going to look at all things email, iOS 7 comes with the mail app. It's a full fledged email client for reading, sending, and managing your email accounts. The first think you'll need to do is set up your email account or accounts on your device. Probably the easiest way to do this, is to just sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with your Mac or PC and copy over your account information automatically. That way, there's no need to do any kind of manual set up on your device. Now, in order for this to work with the Mac, you have to be using OS ten's built in mail application as your email program.
If you're on Windows, you'll need to be using Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows mail. iTunes will then detect the email accounts you manage from these programs. So with my iPhone selected here in iTunes I can select the Info tab and if I scroll down I'll find Synch Mail Accounts. And I can check that. And it's detected the accounts I manage here in my mail program on my Mac. And all I have to do here is check the accounts that I want to access on my phone. I'll keep them both checked. But it's important to note what it says down here. Syncing mail accounts syncs your account settings, but not your messages.
To add accounts or make other changes, tap settings, then mail, contacts, calendars on this iPhone. So, we're only synching our account settings here, meaning we're syncing the user name and password and connection info needed to access these email addresses, but not the messages themselves. If you want to make sure the messages on your computer and phone are the same You'll have to do that by setting certain options in your email accounts. We'll take a look at how to do this in an upcoming movie. But for now, this is all I have to do to get my email account information onto my phone. Now I just click Apply, and now I'll be able to send and receive emails from these accounts on my iPhone.
Now if you have an email account that you don't manage on your computer or you created an email account that you want to use exclusively on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad for some reason. You'll have to set that account up on the device itself, and we'll look at how to do that in the next movie.
