  7. Mail will attempt to set up automatically. If this is successful, skip to step 8.
    If auto setup fails, manually enter the server settings as follows:
    Tap the IMAP option at the top of the screen (POP3 is not recommended for mobile devices) and then confirm that the following settings are correct (most settings will be filled out automatically):

    Incoming Host Name:
    Incoming Username: Your Westnet email address
    Incoming Password: Your Westnet email address password

    Outgoing Host Name:
    Outgoing User Name: Your Westnet email address
    Outgoing Password: Your Westnet email address password
    Tap Next and Save.

  8. Adjust the on/off sliders for the services you'd like to sync and then tap Save to finish.
