Setting up incoming pop email from Road Runner to iPhone is straightforward.

Setting up outgoing email is not.

In general, Road Runner requires that you be connected to their network through one of their cable modems in order to use their outgoing SMTP server. Since, an iPhone will never be connected this way, you need to find an alternate way.

There are at least three ways I know of:
1) Send your outgoing mail through Cingular or AT&T's smtp server. This works and is no extra charge, but it has the disadvantage that it only works through the slower EDGE network - not through WIFI.
2) I understand that Google offers free email, and through their free email, you can use their outgoing SMTP servers for your RR account.
3) You can sign up with an outgoing SMTP service like www.authsmtp.com. I use this method. It costs about $25 per year. Your outgoing email works through both EDGE and wifi, and it appears to the recipient as if it came directly from RR.

I recommend either option 2 or 3. The google way is more for a do-it-yourselfer. The authsmtp way is a paid service, so there are good instructions and support. I have several months left with authsmtp, but at some point I may switch to Google. 

I did number 3 and its fantastic!!

Here's what worked for me - I filled in the optional user name and password fields in the smtp settings and switched SSL off.

SOURCE: can received & read but cannot send yahoo mail from iphone

First step is try reseting the network settings. You can do this by going to settings/general/reset and reset network settings.
This will drop you off the network and reset your phone. Bringing your phone back up with current network settings.
Try sending mail. If this doesn't work, try changing your outgoing mail server.
Go into settings/mail, contacts, and calendars/(your yahoo account)/Outgoing mail server.
This will bring you to a list of mail servers, your primary server being the yahoo server with the AT&T smtp server under other.
Click on your primary yahoo server and switch this server to off. click the blue smtp arrow on the very top left. This will bring you back to the server list. go to the AT&T smtp server and turn this server on.
Go ahead and exit out either by the arrow or the home button.
Access your yahoo account see if you can send mail.

What firmware OS are you running? Did you try to jail break or unlock it? Also I would plug it into iTune, let it back up and then do a restore.

There is not an SMTP outgoing server called 'apple.smtp.mail.yahoo.com'. Try removing 'apple' from the beginning of the SMTP outgoing server name in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Yahoo Email Address > Click on email address. If that does help, re-add your Yahoo email to your iPhone and test the account again.

My iphone 5 will not recieve texts from a nokia 1650


First, try resetting the phone, press the Home button and Power button simultaneously until the screen goes blank. If you don't see the Apple logo, press the power button to turn the phone on. Have your friend try texting you. If it still doesn't receive the text, try removing the SIM card and reinserting it. Try another test. One last measure is to go into Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

If none of these work, you will have to contact your carrier as SMS is a carrier specific service.

I have had this phone since October 2009. Yesterday evening it was working fine but last night at 7:30ish it stopped recieving text messages. I didn't realize it until today though I just thought my texts...


Such problems occur when your message center number has been tampered with. Call your service provider to get the message center number go to message settings and check the message center in use input the correct center number and your problem is solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful to you?

Can't authenticate my yahoo mail account on my new iphone


delete the yahoo mail account on your iphone and re add it - may be that the password was entered wrong.

Think I did this once with my gmail account and drove me nuts for a while and then deleted it completely and started again making sure I was doing it slowly and entering all the information correctly.

Problem with sending emails on the iphone


What email provider are you using.
Also check who is your incoming mail server but the best way to do this is to delete your account and register it again on iPhone push mail.

Thank you, Apple Care Technical Support

I can't send a picture to my email from iphone


if you are using Yahoo Mail and set up the account automatically with your iPhone/iTouch, you will get this error message whenever you try to email a photo. The solution is to set up the Yahoo mail account manually like you would any other POP account. I tried it after receiving that same error messaqe over and over and this seems to have fixed the problem. The issue isn't with the iPhone/iTouch, it is with Yahoo. Hope this helps
