IMAP with iPad Mail

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:

路 On the iPhone, tap Settings.
路 Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
路 Tap Add Account.
路 Tap Other.
路 Tap Add Mail Account.
路 Complete the Name, Address (email address), Password and Description fields.
路 Click Next.
路 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 鈥淓nsure IMAP is selected鈥, even when I go to advanced settings.
