IPhone 3G and NetworkSolutions email configuration
I have an iPhone 3G and I also have an email account with network solutions. I access (using my computer) the email account from the web only. My emaill address on the account is firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm tryingto configure the email on the iPhone so I can go directly to the emailaccount. Any ideas? Network solutions can't help (they gave me lots of settings to try and spent time on the phone with me) nor can Apple. Thanks for any help

Many iPhone users are facing a lot of problems with email. They are facing problems in sending or receiving email messages. The email account configured in the user's iPhone has been popping strange problems. Sometimes it simply refuses to accept any incoming mails and at other times it suffers from problems in the retrieval of mails.
Configure your email account directly on iPhone and not from your computer
Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and from there only add your email accounts under Accounts by tapping the Add Account option.
Turn of Wi-Fi and try fetching your mails by using the Cellular Data network
Try restarting your iPhone by pressing the sleep/wake up button for few seconds on turning it back on
After trying these options your iPhone should be back with your email account working perfectly fine. Otherwise you may need to visit the nearest Apple Store.
Getting Started 1 Tap on the Settings app icon on the home page 2. Scroll down and open Mail Contacts Calendars 3 Tap Add Account 4 Select Microsoft Exchange 5 In the Email field, enter your Gmail address Leave the Domain field blank Enter your Google s Username and Password Once done tap Save You might see the Unable to verify certificate error message Select ccept 6 A new Server input field will now appear Enter m.google.com Tap Next to continue 7 Select the Google services that you want to sync. For me, I activated all the available synchronization services. Tap Done google sync enable Your Google sync Push notification services is now set up To activate the push notification you need to turn the Push feature on in the iPhone Settings section.At the Mail Contacts, Calendar section tap Fetch New Data Make sure that the Push is turned to ON Done Few things to note 1 Google sync requires you to be constantly connected to the Web You have to keep your 3G or WIFI connection Always Of for the best result 2 The push notification can be very draining on your battery life If you value your battery life much more than the push technology turn the Push feature OFF for optimal performance Push email support is one of the iPhone 3G s most anticipated features for road warriors but it doesn't work with just any email account Find out how to get hooked up The iPhone 2.0 software available for the iPhone 3G iPhone and iPod touch can t automatically turn any email account into push email It can only instantly send new messages to your phone if your email service supports push email The new iPhone 2.0 software supports push email in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange servers and Apple s Mobile Me service (the replacement for Apple s Mac Apple has labelled Mobile Me Exchange for the rest of us and it can push email to devices running iPhone 2.0 plus keep the device in sync with Microsoft Outlook on a PC or Mail Address Book and i Cal on a Mac he new iPhone s main settings menu now features a new icon Fetch New Data which lets you enable push email You can also schedule the phone to automatically check non-push email services every 15 30 or 60 minutes, or else only manually Which email works with push Push support from other services depends on the provider. The original iPhone supported push email with Yahoo by routing email through i map.apple mail yahoo.com but the service was flaky. This is still the default Yahoo email wizard configuration under iPhone 2.0 but if it refuses to work you can still go into Other and manually set up POP3 Yahoo access Gmail does not support push email only I MAP or POP3 What if I m using G mail or my email from an ISP like iiNet Of course the workaround is to forward your existing email address such as a G mail account, to your Mac account You could even create server side filters on G mail to only forward emails from certain senders to your Mac address to ensure you re not bombarded with push email spam You can also configure Mobile Me to automatically check external POP3 email accounts but this won t get emails from a G mail account to your phone as quickly as it would if your G mail account was automatically forwarding them Push email uses more data The iPhone 2.0 mail client only downloads email headers from I MAP and POP3 servers, in order to save bandwidth When accessing push email services the phone automatically downloads the body of the email and small attachments meaning you need a generous monthly data allowance The iPhone disables its wifi adaptor when sleeping switching over to the mobile data network. This means most of your push email will come down over the mobile data network while the phone is at rest, even when you're within range of a wifi network
There are two nation-wide cell networks that allow you to browse the internet. The EDGE network (for original iPhone) and the 3G network (3G is faster, but not as widespread and can only be accessed through the iPhone 3G ). iPhone monthly plans include unlimited use of the internet, without using up your calling minutes.
If you can take advantage of a nearby wireless hub, you'll have much better speed than when you're on a cell-phone data network... but even without wireless, you can still browse, email, work and play via the EDGE or 3G cell-phone network.
Y would u want to connect to a Virtual Private Network?
If u dnt kno the account name and server i dnt think you need a vpn as these are usually used for private business's . But i think you might need to set up cellular data network instead.
If your on a 3g data network then u'll need tmobile to reset it for ya bcuz the cellular data network is only available ounce ur using edge. The 3g network is supposed to automatically configure the right settings for ya.
Go to settings on home page.
Then to "mail, contacts, and calenders".
Then "add accounts".
Fill in the blanks with your account info and it should work.
I know this sounds simplistic but that's really all there is to it.
So I had the same problem using a Network Solutions mail account and got it working. Here is what I did:
Name: Whatever you want Address: email@example.com (user specific) Must include the @domain Description: same as above INCOMING MAIL SERVER User Name: firstname.lastname@example.org (user specific) Must include the @domain password: password OUTGOING MAIL SERVER Host name: smtp.domain.com Username:no entry password:no entry
At message that SSL failed select YES to continue without using SSL should get message twice (incoming & outgoing server tests)
Made no changes to Authentication (default-password) or Server port (default-25)
Came up and began to load mail instantly.Sent test mail and all is good.
for pop - you need to type in pop.mail.yahoo.com and smtp - smtp.mail.yahoo.com. put in ur user name and password, it should work. It worked for me. Make sure you have a data plan or can access the safari.
