These server details are specific to your domain. The below screenshot shows how this information should be entered, where "yourdomain.com" is replaced with the registered domain associated with this e-mail address.

The Incoming and Outgoing Host Name should be set to use mail.bravehost.com.
 
The User Name is your full email address.
 
 
 
For outgoing email to work, you will need to fill in the User Name and Password fields.
 
 
 
When this information has been entered, tap "Save" again to complete configuration! Your phone may take a moment to verify this information and make an initial connection to the mail servers. If this is a brand new e-mail address, please allow some extra time for the connection to be made.
 
 
 
4. You can now access your inbox by tapping the "Mail" icon. You should immediately receive an automatic welcome message from us with some details you can use if you need assistance, and to verify that your inbox is properly receiving mail.
