This information is available at the website you provided - via the link at the bottom of the page named Computing and Networking Services.
Do you have a CNS account or a GatorLink account since there is a difference with the account settings for each?
Copied from the website regarding email client setup.
The UF Computing Help Desk, (352) 392-HELP, is available to answer any question concerning the configuration and use of personal computer e-mail clients with GatorLink or CNS e-mail service, and questions about using the UF Software CD-ROM.

Don't tell the Help Desk you are using an iPhone since this makes no difference.
This is the information you need:
Your email address and email account password which I'm sure you already know.
Account Type - IMAP or POP. Based on the website, you have an option so if you plan on accessing your email account with the iPhone and with another email client on your Sony Vaio such as Outlook Express or Outlook and/or via webmail access via the webmail website - you should choose IMAP.
The incoming mail server address for accessing the account as an IMAP account.
The user name format - this is usually the portion of your email address in front of the @ sign only but with some providers it is your entire email address. I believe it is the portion of your email address in front of the @ sign only for UF.
The outgoing mail server address or SMTP server.
Is the outgoing mail server or SMTP server password authenticated?
Any other settings such as using SSL for the incoming and outgoing mail servers?
Get these questions answered and you are well on your way.
