    I have an iPad with iOS 10.3.3 (14G60).

    Several sites give the following instructions for setting up an email account on the iPad Mail app:

    · On the iPhone, tap Settings.
    · Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
    · Tap Add Account.
    · Tap Other.
    · Tap Add Mail Account.
    · Complete the Name, Address (email address), Password and Description fields.
    · Click Next.
    · Ensure IMAP is selected

    I want an IMAP connection, and I know that my ISP supports this because I have it on my PC.

    The trouble is with the last instruction. Mail sets up a POP connection as soon as I click Next and I can see no way to “Ensure IMAP is selected”, even when I go to advanced settings.

    Welcome to iPad Forums!

    If this site doesn’t help with setting up your email account:
    Mail Settings Lookup - Apple Support
    you’ll have to ask your provider how to do it correctly. There might also be instructions on their site.

    Thanks J.A. However, I finally gave up on Mail and switched to the Outlook app. Works just fine by default.
