Just set up an email account on new iPhone. How do I stop it wanti g to download all 4,000  emails off my server and just download new emails?

You can go into settings, mail, contacts and calendars, and set your mail to only download the last 50.
When you actually set upthe account, you can go into any available advanced settings and see if that can be set to new mail only. Unfortunately, every mail provider had slightly different things they'll allow you to tweak, so you just have to play to see what you can do.
For example, when I set up my Yahoo, I have different things I can tweak than I do on my Hotmail account, so some accounts allow more ability to tweak than others.

    Make sure that your Apple ID is your email address and you do not have any other or old IDs associated with you. Go to www.appleid.apple.com and confirm this info. Make sure that the email address you are trying to sign up with is your primary one.

    Hey Garlicdaisy,
    Thank you for the follow up.
    With iCloud, you can have iTunes automatically download new music purchases to all your devices the moment you tap Buy. You can also access past music, movie, and TV show purchases from any of your devices — wirelessly and without syncing.
    For more information, see the following:
    Apple - iCloud - All your music on all your devices.
    http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/itunes-in-the-cloud/
    To download past purchases on your devices, follow these steps:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2519
    If you want the benefits of iTunes in the Cloud for music you haven’t purchased from iTunes, iTunes Match is the perfect solution:

  • I've just added a new email account to my iPhone 5

    I've just added a new email account to my iPhone 5 & want to add a signature to my outgoing emails.
    I set this up myself bofore upgrading to ios7 but for the life of me I cant find find the option in any of the settings.
    Anyone...?

    It is a hotmail account (I know that hotmail has problems, so I had set it up via an 'other' account in the settings), it is not a POP.
    On my old Iphone 4, the minute I recieved an email my phone would vibrate and the email would show up in my inbox, yet my Iphone 5 isn't even recognising an email, let alone sending me a push notification.
    Thank you.

    if i set up a new email account on my iphone 4 can i get security code or extra pin to stop others accessing the new email account?

    No, and if I noticed anyone that I allowed to use my iPhone checking my email which is the same as opening any of my snail mail without my permission, that would be the last time they used my iPhone.

  • HT1277 why i cannot set up my exchange account into my iphone 4s.  everything that needs to input has been provided right, but error says cannot get email not connected to the srver.where seems to be the problem?pls help.btw,i have an outlook for macbook

    please help me find out the solution to the problem.
    My iphone 4S was not able to fetch mails from the server ( outgoing and incoming)
    I was trying to configure my exchange account and follow all the procedures correctly but am having trouble in sending and receiving mails as the error says " cant get mails cannot connect to the server?  where seems to be the problem?
    Have read from the support services that if you using a Pop3 account into another device which I did ( my email was configured via outlook for mac in my macbook) there might be a lock out problem and cannot get emails on the second device which is my iphone?  ( I want to set up my exchange account to my iphone so wherever and whenever i go i cant still access to my email easily. Please help.

    No one seems to be hearing what Big Q is saying.
    He can pair his iPhone to his Macbook, but cannot CONNECT. He's NOT asking for alternative solutions, like Wi Fi.
    I am able to both pair and connect my one one Macbook to my other one, but I can only pair but not connect my iPhone or iPad to either Macbook. So I have the same problem. But I can pair and connect my Macbooks to other Bluetooth devices, like my ancient Nokia cellfone, or my Bluetooth HP printer.
    It's irrelavent that I can instead use a direct USB cable or Wi Fi between my Macbooks and my iPhone/iPad - why can't I use Bluetooth? If Apple does not allow Bluetooth between it's Macbooks and other Mac devices, then why have Bluetooth at all? Does my iPhone have Bluetooth only so that I can pair and connect to my my non Apple mobile handsfree car kit, or communicate easily with the dreaded Apple enemy Samsung, or what?
    Make no mistake , I am a diehard Apple fan, but this Bluetooth non compatibility issue appears shortsighted and seemingly pointless. Why does Apple not just say why they created the non compatibility, or have a message on the Bluetooth setup programme which simply and clearly says "don't bother wasting hours of your time trying to pair and connect your iPhone to your Macbook, because we don't allow that anymore, reason being that............"?
    As a first time user of this Forum I am surprised at the intolerant and highhanded tone of some of the replies  to what is a legitimate question, that is obviously plagueing many, many other Apple users.

  • I cannot add a new pop email account in my "iphone 6"

    I cannot add a new pop email account in my iphone, when i confirmed "saving account" it is automatically being closed and kick-out me from?
    It is iPhone 6 and the system is iOS 8.1
    I am going to select "Others" and then my user name, password and "next".
    Then IMAP and POP settings screen is coming. I am going to select "POP" with my incoming and outgoing server details.
    And finally I am going to proceed with "save".... So... pupff........ it is going, closing, kicking me out. Maybe 20-25 times since yesterday I try it but no win.
    What should I do for these my friends. This is my business email... It was working before in iPhone 5s and afte iPhone 6 I make reset for 5s.
    I try later on for 5s again. It make me the same thing also. They are not allowing me to add a new pop email address.

    Is it your own domain?
    Have you tried setting up as Exchange?

  • I have just setup an exchange mail account on my iphone and many of my settings have defaulted. Was this set by my business or by exchange?

    I have just setup an exchange mail account on my iphone to acces smy business emails and many of my settings have defaulted. As an example, my passcode has defaulted to a minimum of 6 digits and my phone will erase all data after 10 failed attempts.  These are now greyed out and I cannot change them.
    Is this a default set by Apple/Microsoft?
    Or was this a setting enforced by my company, whose mail exchange I am accessing?

    ditto what KT said...the passcode requirement enables the encryption of the local storage of your device and auditing of that policy ..it protects your organization AND you from potential data loss and a  mandatory reporting obligation..imagine how miserable it would be to see the name of your organization on the front page of your local newspaper with a story about data loss....every IT and risk management department's worst nightmare

    having issue setting up email account on the iphone.  Going into settings mail, contacts, calendars...it goes back to the welcome screen.  How do I delete all email accounts and set up from scratch?

    I was having the exact same issue.  It was driving me crazy.  Just as a fluke, I tried logging in to my wife's account on the verizon.net website to se if I had a bad password or something.  As soon as I logged in on my computer, her account verified & installed on her iphone.  I have no idea why, but it worked.

  • Why do messages I delete on one of my email accounts on my iPhone keep reappearing as new unread messages?

    I have several email accounts on my iphone.  I am having trouble with my sbcglobal.net address whereby messages I delete reappear as unread new messages (same date).  This seems to happen with the last 50 or so messages in my inbox.  When those are deleted, 50 or so old messages are then received as new, unread messages.  This does not happen with any of my other email accounts on my iphone and it does not happen on my mac or ipad.
    This was true prior to upgrading to ios 5 and icloud (I thought the upgrade might resolve the issue)
    Thanks for any help.

    You could go to icloud.com on your computer, then download your iCloud calendar as an .ics file as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4910 (under Calendar...icloud.com Calendar), then import this to a supported program on your computer such as Outlook or Mac iCal (if you have one) and sync it to your phone using iTunes; or if you don't have a supported program, import it to an external service such as Google Calendar (see http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/30834/add-an-ical-or-.ics-calendar-to-google-cale ndar/) and sync it to your phone using a gmail exchange account (as explained here: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=138740).

  • ICloud now insisting on previous Apple id. Cannot log in. Will not accept new id and emails old id – a closed email account – with info.  How do I fix?

    iCloud now insisting on previous Apple id. Cannot log in.
    Will not accept new id and emails old id – a closed email account – with info.  How do I fix?

    If the old ID is an earlier version of your current ID, temporarily recreate the old ID by going to https://appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Click edit next to the primary email account, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  You can now use your current password to turn off Find My iPhone, even though it prompts you for the password for your old account ID.  Then you can go back to https://appleid.apple.com and change your ID back to the way it was.
