If you are an RCN Internet customer, then you should have access to an email account on the RCN domain. While you can access this email account through a Web browser, you can also configure the account to receive or send emails in programs like Microsoft Outlook, or on devices like the iPhone.
The iPhone has specific setup options for email accounts from providers like Gmail and Yahoo, but there is not one specifically for RCN accounts. However, an RCN email account can still be set up on an iPhone without any difficulty, so continue reading below and follow our RCN email setup tutorial for the iPhone 6, or any other device that is using iOS 8.
Set Up RCN Email in iOS 8
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 6 Plus, in iOS 8. However, these steps will work for other devices running iOS 8, as well as devices that use iOS 7. You can have multiple email accounts set up on your iPhone at the same time, so even if you initially set up your device with a different account, you will be able to add the RCN account without any issues.
Step 1: Tap the Settings icon.
Step 2: Scroll down and select the Mail, Contacts, Calendars option.
Step 3: Tap the Add Account button.
Step 4: Select the Other option.
Step 5: Tap the Add Mail Account button.
Step 6: Enter your name into the Name field, your RCN email address into the Email field, and your password into the Password field, then touch the Next button at the top-right corner of the screen.
Your iPhone will verify the account information, after which you will be able to access your RCN email from the Mail app on your device.
