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.

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.

Why am i not receiving emails which i know have been sent nothing received since 11th february


Is your mailbox full? Are your senders getting messages that the mail could not be delivered because your mailbox is full? If so, you must delete some of your previously received or sent mail to make space for incoming mail.

If that doesn't do it, reply with more infornation. Who is your provider (Comcast, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.)? Do you use a mail client or a web browser to receive your mail? Windows, Mac, Android phone, iPhone, something else?

I am having receiving problem


I am not sure exactly if what I did solved the problem.
The main thing was I deleted messages from my in, sent, spam & finally emptied trash. But it didn't seem to have made a change yesterday.
Today I received a message from yoy (Fixya), I then tested it and it seems to be working fine.

Maybe a routine night job by Yahoo permenantly removed my deleted messages and created space.
If this is possible please let me know.

I received this E-mail and think I should report it to Yahoo... but I can not find an address on the Yahoo site to forward it to. Can you help? Bev ----- Forwarded Message ---- From: "support@yahoo.com" ...


Hi bevau3,
This is quite an old spam doing the rounds. If you read carefully, it says "Please use the following password THE...." - "the" is the password, but it would be advisable not to open any attachment. Select it, then click on the Mark As Spam button in your inbox. Yahoo would be automatically notified, and you'd also be saved from any further mails from this address.

Message in my inbox


I have a similar problem and was unable to get into the inbox or sent items. You can get access to your mail by following the link below.

http://uk.m.yahoo.com/p/mail

This is the second time Yahoo Mail has gone haywire since October 2008 and they really ought to get their act together.

You may have problems replying from the above link though. I would recommend you try another email address to reply, that is if the reply is important.

Good luck.
