Hi I set up my iPhone with the instructions below but I cannot keep my outgoing server account from fetching mail. Is there anyway to do this?
My outgoing going server is setup from a godaddy account (email@example.com) so I can choose "firstname.lastname@example.org" instead of iCloud "email@example.com" as "sent from". I tried to disable the firstname.lastname@example.org account and the outgoing server setup remained for iCloud but it will send still from email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org.... so if I have to keep email@example.com on how do I keep it from fetching mail constantly ( I have already tried "manually")? Thank you.
Same effect, simplified instructions. Thanks James!!
