Update 1: Here are some updated instructions via reader Virage (thanks):

The correct settings for iPhone 3GS on Rogers Wireless with Shaw email are as follows:

1. Create new mail account
2. Select POP (not IMAP) type of an account
3. Enter Name (user name of your email account ie. for user@shaw.ca would be user)
4. Enter Address: this is your email address ie. user@shaw.ca
5. Enter Description: whatever you want to display in your listing of Mail accounts
6. Incoming Mail Server:
– Host Name: pop.shaw.ca
– User Name: user (or whatever following instructions in #3 above)
– Password: the password you use to check email from your mail account with shaw.ca
7. Outgoing Mail Server:

– This entry will set it as the Primary Server; click on this entry to complete rest of the details

Here are some revised steps to setup Shaw/Telus Email on your iPhone (Hotmail users click here):

1. Go to https://webmail.shaw.ca/uwc/auth and click on the beta version and then log in.

2. Click on preferences, mobile access, and then click on enabled.

3. Click on the mobile device instructions. Here’s what you’ll see:

iPhone / iPad

Setting up your Shaw webmail account to your iPhone/iPad is simple, just follow these short and simple steps. If you’re adding an additional account with software version 2.0 or later:

  1. Touch the Settings icon on the Home screen,
  2. Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  3. Select Add Account…
  4. Select Other
  5. Select Add Mail Account
  6. and enter your account information.
  7. Select Next
  8. Choose the POP account button
  9. Enter the following information in the spaces provided under Incoming Mail Server:
    1. Host Name – Enter ‘pop.shaw.ca’
    2. User Name – Your Shaw email address without the @shaw.ca
    3. Password – Enter your email password.
  10. Enter the following information in the spaces provided under Outgoing Mail Server:
    1. Host Name – Enter ‘mail.shaw.ca’
    2. User Name – Your Shaw email address without the @shaw.ca
    3. Password – Enter your email password.
  11. Click Save
  12. You will see a message: ‘Cannot Connect Using SSL’ – select Yes

In software version 2.0 or later, Mail can automatically setup many popular POP and IMAP email accounts using just your email address and password. As Mail looks up settings that match your email account you may see a note appear that will describe any limitations you may experience in using your email account.

The above instructions come straight from Shaw, and should now be the best way to setup your email with your iPhone/iPad.

Thanks to Mark D. for the heads up!
