Setup DVR email on iOS (iPhone, iPad, etc)
Note - you might be interested in installing the dedicated Gmail app on your iOS device. It's an excellent alternative to the built in mail app. You can download it from the App Store. Otherwise just follow the steps below.
Open the Settings app from your devices home screen.
Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
Tap Add Account.
Enter your full email address (e.g email@example.com) and
Tap Sign in.
You may be prompted to allow permission, tap Accept.
Leave Mail, Contact and Calendars on but turn off notes.
You'll now be able to access your DVR email from the Mail app. You can also create and share contacts and calendar events in their respective apps too.
