Roadrunner Email Settings for iPhone | How to Add RR Email To iPad & iPhone

Roadrunner Email Settings for iPhone

Few days ago I got a call from a friend asking how to carry out Roadrunner email settings on his new iPhone. I was actually amazed he was asking this because he already has an iPad and didn’t seem to have any problem setting up Roadrunner email account on it.

While looking into his issue, I remembered that I once had this same problem, which I assume is causing a lot of confusion for other unidentified people still looking for the Roadrunner email settings for iPhone or iPad settings.

I picked out that if my friend needed instructions on how to set up Roadrunner email on her iPhone, he probably wasn’t the only one, thus this write up.

While doing Roadrunner email settings, it is advised that you use IMAP for setting up the rr email on your iPhone, because the Roadrunner IMAP Settings and POP3 are the e-mail protocol you need to access, send or receive your emails from anywhere.
