    The account it shows under iCloud is your Apple ID. For instance, my email is while my phone shows, which is my Apple ID.

    First, make sure email is enabled under Settings>iCloud. If it is, open Mail and and hit Mailboxes in the upper left corner. There it should show you which accounts you have on your phone.

    Report back and let us know what's going on and we'll try to help.
