Well to the first person unfortunatly the bellsouth email system is not yet designed to work with the 3g network so you would have to turn that off to use bellsouth.

Also for all of you need to remember that both Yahoo and AOL email work with the IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. It is a method of accessing electronic mail or bulletin board messages that are kept on a (possibly shared) mail server. In other words, it permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if they were local. For example, email stored on an IMAP server can be manipulated from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.

where as the bellsouth system is a POP system. what the means is that when you check your email client on either the computer or the phone it is actually pulling the mail from the bellsouth server to the respective devices and deleting the email unless you have both set to leave a copy on the bellsouth server.

and again the sending and recieving issues with bell south is due to the 3g network

Problems sending email message username and password incorrect I have reset it several times and have also added an alternate server,

Hi , if your using I device and obviously you've set up an e mail / gmail adress with your password , here's the easiest solution .
Go to your settings menu
scroll down to mail ,contacts , calendar . ( tap on )
you should see your email address (tap on )
you should see your gmail acct. and at the bottom delete acct. (Tap on delete ) not to worry your acct is a fixed or an assigned acct only to you and will always remain .
Now you will be asked to add an account
problems-sending-email-message-username#solution-section-g4hgh2rdbszykgek21atp4ab-2-0.jpg Choose your provider ,Google , yahoo , hotmail ,etc
problems-sending-email-message-username#solution-section-g4hgh2rdbszykgek21atp4ab-2-2.jpg Follow the instructions and TYPE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME, ORIGINAL USED PASSWORD (APPLE ) , AND IF YOU WANT A DESCRIPTION FOR THIS ADDRESS ,ie : default adress , recovery adress , email 1 , email 2 . Etc etc .......then
you will see in upper right hand corner continue or done . Should be Done . Tap done.
You do not need to open SMTP or you do not need to add server . It is located through automatically.
Your done ! Should open email app icon and send or receive mail . If you get an error pop up then you've most likely entered wrong password . Use your apple password . Not your Google or other provider password

I have just updated my iPad in settings and now don't receive emails. Can see on my iPhone that I have some

This is and ongoing problem with the new OS's. If you delete the email account and redo the email setup this usually helps. Ex. If you have a Optimum (Cablevision) email acct you need to use NOT cause Apple is not recognizing the old server names. So check with your email provider if the server names to setup have changed. I know that changing your email address can be a pain but if you go to a GMail email acct this will solve a lot of the problems that occur when using cable provider email accounts. Also there is a software that will notify all your contacts that your email has changed that you can implement if you choose.

I dont know my password because my husband set up my acct and refuses to give me my own password, he has the reset set to go to his cell sms # and his email acct, and I dont have his email address either

The simple thing to do is for you to set up your OWN email account using Yahoo or GMail or HotMail or one of several other online email services that offer free email accounts. Then you'll have total control over your own email account.

Please don't post your phone number or email address here - you never know who might get hold of it and send you mountains of SPAM email or inappropriate phone calls or text messages.

Which email service is it under? I can try to walk you through the steps.(Gmail, yahoo, hotmail...etc..) Generally, you look for (Sign-In Help, or Can't access your account) Links under the sign in box. Then select whether you can't remember password or Username. Then continue from there.

What email acct r u looking for on the signup page? Is this a completely new acct? Is it for What email acct am I putting a new password in for?

Hi, if u r making a new account on facebook, u should have atleast one account on any renowned site like gmail, yahoo, rediff etc. While registering enter that email in the email field. They will send u a link on that email-id. Also u"ll be asked to enter new password, this can be any password u desire to keep. So dont think like that u hav to enter your existing password. Here you go!!!
