Alternatively, you can set your iPhone to Fetch your email at certain intervals... every 15, 30 or 60 minutes... or manually.

Scroll down...

From here you can choose how many messages to show at one time...

You can adjust the font size...

... and whether or not to show the To and CC labels.

Enabling this option will send a copy of your sent messages to yourself, if you want to keep a copy of your sent messages elsewhere

You can setup your email signature...

... and choose which email account is to be your default account (if you have more than one)

Just about any setting you could want to change for your iPhone email, can be changed from these screens.
