I don't understand this whole IMAP thing and whatever else it says to do. I am kind of dumb when it comes to this. Can someone help explain it and how to do it? Thanks!

Is Verizon your internet provider?

If it is, then you need to get your outgoing and incoming server info from the Verizon Internet support page. Plug those numbers in during the setup of the new mail account and you should be set.

I have verizon for my email, I do not have any experience with IMAP but if I am not mistaken doesn't your email provider have to support IMAP? I think verizon may only support pop3. I could be wrong though. Setup as pop3 I have no problem with my email on my iPhone.

Oh okay, I just don't understand how to set up anything at all with pop3 or imap or whatever. Could you direct me to a guide as to how I can set it up or tell me yourself? Thanks so much!

Enter account settings directly on iPhone
  1. If this is the first account you’re setting up on iPhone or iPod touch, tap Mail. Otherwise, from the Home screen choose Settings > Mail > Accounts > Add Account.
  2. Choose your email account type: Y! Mail (for Yahoo!), Gmail, .Mac, AOL, or Other.
  3. Enter your account information: If you’re setting up a Yahoo!, Gmail, .Mac, or AOL account, enter your name, email address, and password. After that, you’re done.
    Otherwise, click Other, select a server type — IMAP, POP, or Exchange — and enter your account information.
    • Your email address
    • The email server type (IMAP, POP, or Exchange)
    • The Internet host name for your incoming mail server (which may look like “mail.example.com”)
    • The Internet host name for your outgoing mail server (which may look like “smtp.example.com”)
    • Your user name and password for incoming and outgoing servers (you may not need to enter a user name and password for an outgoing server)
