Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Stopped in mid october. just sent a test message from iphone and it was received on home computer, but nothing on iphone mail. only mail account on iphone is the mail.yahoo account.
something about the pop? setting perhaps is what the apple tech support said. they set up a new yahoo mail! account and he sent a mail msg that i did receive on my iphone after adding that test account. so things work..just not with my current email (email@example.com)
had the email for years...
SOURCE: Sending e-mail on iPhone
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!!

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.

Testimonial: "fabulous! thank you! work perfectly now!"
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.
