Adding email accounts to your iPhone is usually a quick and painless affair. And once done, you can read and respond to all of your email messages from a single integrated inbox.

To get started, round up all of your email usernames and passwords. This might be all you need, but if you have an IMAP account hosted by an email service or a corporate Exchange server, you might need additional information.
