Re: Mail config iphone

Delete the whole mail account from the iphone, the re-add the account again with correct settings, make sure ssl is on. Try to check email on Edge, and Wifi and see if that makes a difference.

I can receive emails but other people cannot receive emails from my phone

Hi William
Setting up an Email account on a Computer or iPhone is divided into 2 parts. The incoming mail server (POP) & the Outgoing (SMTP) server. You need to fill in these details correctly.
Send an Email to yourself to test this out.
That way it's quicker to test and you avoid annoying your friends while getting this Problem sorted out.
Your problem seems to be that the mail is not Sending correctly.
Which means that the details you are entering in the "Outgoing" boxes is incorrect.
Now, I've had this same problem on my iPhone on several occasions. The problem can be that you are using your own ISP details as you would on a fixed location computer but your outgoing email goes to your mobile carrier first. For example....
My email settings from the computer might be .au
Most of the time this works on the iPhone as well but, when I'm out in the country away from home it sometimes gets stuck in the "send" box. (It doesn't get sent)
So I open up my email settings in Settings / Mail,Contacts, Calendars. & Choose the Account Name I am using to send email.
Then look at the OUTGOING Mail Server / SMTP
and I see the PRIMARY server which is "" in my case. Underneath is another heading called.
in here I enter the mail server that the mobile phone company uses... (my mobile carrier's email setting)
Enter details & turn this setting ON and if the first PRIMARY server can't be contacted then the secondary one can.
Some email accounts don't like SSL turned on.
I have SSL off & no user name or password in my settings, yours may be different depending on country & carrier, (I'm in Australia)
(Check your ISP's Email Setup requirements on their web site to get their preferred settings. Same for Mobile Phone Carrier.)
Sending via the Mobile carrier (who uses different settings) is what causes the problem. So...... by putting in this alternate route, it often solves the problem.
Now... it pays to note that sometimes these settings get so screwed up that just putting in the alternate settings fails to kick in. So...
I have found that, Deleting the Email account settings completely, does the trick....
Simply "Delete Email Account" and then re enter the full details again. (This has also worked on the computer as well)
Be sure to write down the old settings first or on the iPhone, press the top button and the bottom "thumb" button at the same time, will take a snapshot of the screen image and store it in the "Photos" App which allows you to refer to the settings later.
Hope this Helps

Am unable to send outgoing/incoming mails from my samsung gts5253 mobile

you will need to check the WAP and Email setup settings with your service providers, you can also go the the Email setup wizard and enter the following settings.

Yahoo Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:
    Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 465)
    Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (SSL enabled, port 995)

I am unable to setup my email wizard in my samsung corby

Standard instructions for email inbox setup:

i have finished my corby pro email settings & i can send and recieve emails. the problem with only recieving & not able to send is the confusion between port numbers. in secure connection box three options available ' off ', ' SSL ', ' TLS '. use only SSL or TLS because the port numbers for SSL & TLS differs. just try this & you will be able to send and recieve emails.

                                                    SMTP port - 465

                                                    POP3 port - 995

Enable POP in Gmail. Don't forget to click Save Changes when you're done.Configure your client to match the settings below:Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465Account Name:your full email address (including Address:your email address ( Gmail password

Unless you're using recent mode to download mail to multiple clients, make sure you've opted not to leave messages on the server. Your Gmail settings determine whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won't affect how Gmail handles your mail.

Please note that if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.

Also, if you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that encyrption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.

You're now ready to use POP with your Gmail address.

My e-mail no longer receives my e-mails, yet i can still send them out.

You could sent out but unable to receive. I'm pretty sure that your e-mail is configured in the e-mail client of your phone via POP or IMAP or Exchange.

1. Make sure that you still have enough memory storage on your e-mail. You may verify it with your e-mail provider.

2. Change the Incoming Mail Server port. If it's setup for POP, you may use the ports 110 (non-SSL) or 995 (SSL).

If it's configured as IMAP, use any of these ports - 143 or 993.

Changing the incoming ports should resolve this issue.

Thank you!

Apple iPhone and Network Solutions web mail

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: (user specific) Must include the @domain
Description: same as above
User Name: (user specific) Must include the @domain
password: password
Host name:
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.

IPhone Road Runner Issues

Setting Outgoing Server on iPhone
1. From the Home screen, tap Settings.
2. On the Settings screen, tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
3. On the Mail screen, under Accounts, tap your Roadrunner account.
4. Tap Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP).
5. Tap Primary Server (might say, or some other rr server)
Host Name
Change Host Name to
User Name
Leave blank
Leave blank

Make sure SSL is off
Should say Password
Server Port
Should say 25, if not change to 25

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

Good Luck!

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!
