How to Add FastMail to iOS

FastMail is a popular email service for people looking for a paid alternative to Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo. FastMail is ad-free and can be used with custom domain names. The web interface for fast mail is blazing fast, but if you want a unified email experience on your iPhone or iPad with all of your personal and work email accounts, you’ll want to use a native email app.
