If you know what type of service you have from excite it should be pretty simple, however I know nothing about excite. Usually when email doesn't work from the perspective of the phone it is incorrect info in the setup on the phone itself. Key things to check are "incoming server info...you may have to try a few but i expect that it will be either a simple pop3 or an imap.excite.com typr; same for outgoing mail server prob smtp.excite.com or some variety; I believe it that f you leave the port number as it comes up that it defauls to the correct setting and that the defaults are based on the security setting. From there you have to specify how and how often your phone checks for/ receives mail.

The apple website has excellent info about most problems. Just go to the iphone FAQ first and if no luck there just scan thru theiphone support menus on the apple site.

I had this problem, I am not 100% on what fixed it but try this:
In email:
* menu -> accounts
* menu -> account settings
* Its my gmail, so I selected google.
* next
* Sign in
* Enter the username and password for your existing account
* It will say "Account already exists; There is already a whatever@gmail.com account on this phone". But as soon as it said that I started getting emails again. So I am assuming that it updated the password.

I am trying to set up an email on my phone but it keep on saying dns error/failed how do i set up an email from my phone?


just giving you an idea,

on your computer, login to your email account then go to your account settings.. just copy your email configuration to your mobile..

on menu > messages > settings > email > email accounts
> Your email account.. input your configuration from your email..

(e.g. smtp.mail.yahoo.com & pop.mail.yahoo.com) for yahoo accounts

on menu > messages > settings > email > email profiles> choose your connection (e.g. wifi connection, gprs/edge connection)
