Make sure that you know your email settings. Then follow these steps:

  1. Tap Add Account, tap Other, then tap Add Mail Account.
  2. Enter your name, email address, password, and a description for your account.
  3. Tap Next. Mail will try to find the email settings and finish your account setup. If Mail finds your email settings, tap Done to complete your account setup.

If Mail can't find your email settings, you need to enter them manually. After you enter your email address and password, tap Next, then follow these steps:

  1. Choose IMAP or POP for your new account. If you aren’t sure which one to choose, contact your email provider.
  2. Enter the information for Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server. Then tap Next. If you don't have this information, try to look it up or contact your email provider.
  3. If your email settings are correct, tap Save to finish. If the email settings are incorrect, you'll be asked to edit them.

I also tried to search for setting for but google does not have any thing on it. You will have to check for its settings from its email provider. It seems to be specific to china only. Please try and contact your email service provider to get incoming and out going server details.
