When you first set up your iPhone 13 you probably set up your primary email account so that you could send and receive messages through the Mail app.
Now when you go into the Mail app you are likely seeing mail from your email account, as well as the iCloud account that you get with your Apple ID.
But if you have another email account, such as one that you use for school, work, or an organization, then you might like to view the email for that account as well.
Fortunately the iPhone 13 supports the addition of multiple email accounts, and managing all of them through the default Apple Mail app is simple and intuitive.
You can add another iPhone 13 email account by going to Settings > Mail > Accounts > Add Account > then completing the mail account setup wizard.
Once the email account has been added to the iPhone 13 you will be able to receive and view the messages that are sent to that account, as well as respond to those email and create new ones.
Our guide below will show you more about setting up an iPhone email account so that you can get all of your emails in one location on your smartphone.

More Information on Adding an Email Account to an iPhone
Many of the email accounts that you try to add to your iPhone are going to use the IMAP protocol by default. This means that changes you make to the account, such as reading or deleting emails, will be reflected in other places where you access the account, like Outlook or a Web browser.
Some of the more common email providers like Gmail, Outlook, and yahoo have made this process very simple. This means that you will only need to enter your email address and password, and possible confirm app access or complete two factor authentication.
If you complete the “Other” type of email account setup then you may need to know things like IMAP, POP, or SMTP server settings. Most email providers will provide links to this information from your online email portal, or you can simply search for “(your email provider) IMAP settings” and you should find the information you need.
You can add a lot of email accounts to your iPhone 13, so you shouldn’t need to worry about removing any accounts when you add new ones. Your iPhone will automatically combine all of your emails into an “All Inboxes” folder in the Mail app. If you want to view the individual inboxes you can tap “Mailboxes” at the top-left of the Mail screen, then tap the inbox that you would like to view.
If you scroll further down on that Mail boxes screen you will see different subsections for each email address that you have added. You can expand those sections by tapping the arrow to the right of the account name, and you will see all of the folders for that account. This is how you can check your Sent folder and Junk email folders.
