    I have a verizon email account. I set it up on my iphone, and it receives mail, but will not send. I get an error that says: "the connection to the outgoing server '' failed." Please...

    If iPhone is unable to send mail, try these basic troubleshooting steps.
    1) Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and under Accounts, tap the account from which you're trying to send mail.
    2) Scroll down to where it says Outgoing Mail Server and tap the box where it says SMTP.
    3) Scroll down to where it says AT&T SMTP Server, and tap it turn it on, or Turn on all other SMTP Servers.

    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.

    Host Name
    Change Host Name to

    As an alternate if the above does not work: After tapping Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP), look for AT&T SMTP Server, tap it, then turn Server to ON

    Take a look at your SMTP mail settings. Settings --> Mail --> Accounts. Make sure that you have the proper outgoing (SMTP) server listed for that particular account.

    Sending e-mail on iPhone

    I think I found the solution for those of you who are on roadrunner service. I researched online for several hours and came up with this solution - it works for me - receiving and sending all mail:
    Go to Settings disable wi-fi instead of the pie on the top you will see the blue E Go to Settings - general - reset - click on reset networks Once your network is reset, click on Settings - Mail - add account - plus in your name, address, and e-mail account name Scroll to incoming mail server: type in user name (that's the first part of your e-mail addresss before the your password (the one you used setting up your account with roadrunner) scroll down to outgoing mail server host name: click on Advanced - make sure that use ssl is off on both incoming and outgoing. Your server port should show as 587 when all done, click on the top left arrow which should show your e-mail address exit the mail system, the click on the icon from the main menu and it should work Good luck!
