How to access Plesk mailbox from iPhone

In this article, we’ll show you how to access Plesk from an iPhone with iOS 13.5. You can set up your mail account manually or automatically. If you’re setting it up automatically, you won’t have to specify most of your mail settings because Plesk will generate a QR code and a link to download your mail profile onto your phone with the necessary settings.
