    Has any body figured out how to add a POP3 Mail Account to an iPhone 4S running iOS 6? When trying to add an account it took my Name, email address, Password, & Description but did not give an option to select a POP Account. Instead it simply verified the information and came back with an imap account. I could then change all of the information to the POP account settings but gave me know opportunity to change the incoming port number retaining instead the port number for the imap server. Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

    I'm fairly new to the iPhone.

    The only way I found to add my pop3 accounts was to sync them from outlook in iTunes and then configure the SMTP ports.

    Despite getting pop3 set up in the iPhone I had to go back to exchange as I couldn't send on 3G. Everything worked fine on wifi.
