We're here to help with getting you logged into your email, @billehman.


We are aware that some of our customers are facing frequent email account lockouts. This is believed to be due to bad actors trying to breach our customer's emails, however our security team is aware of it and is actively working to block the IP addresses of those responsible. We appreciate your patience with us in the meantime, and ask that you please continue to reset your email password as a workaround for the time being until this matter is fully resolved.


As for your request to set up your email on your iPhone, we highly recommend using our device support page and following these easy steps to get the assistance you need:

  1. Select your iPhone model from the list provided and click Confirm Selection.
  2. Scroll down and click on Email and Messaging.
  3. Click Set Up Email.
  4. Follow the instructions that are on screen to get your email set up on your iPhone.

Let us know how these steps work for you!
