  • My incoming info is currently set as a Pop Account. The Host Name is: and I have the username set with the above e-mail address (associated with my domain - which is hosted by Dreamhost). The mail is not coming into my phone (Mail) with this setting. Should I change it to an IMAP account or do I need to change the username to the gmail address associated with it? Thank you!
