How To: Add Your Website’s E-Mail To Your Apple Device

Many of our clients use an iOS device as their primary mobile phone or Tablet. So to make it easier for you, our valued clients, we have created a guide on how to add your website’s unique e-mailbox to your iPhone, iPad or iTouch’s mail application!

Here you go!

Steps:
