IPhone SBCglobal email set up

Thee seems to be a problem, at least the IPone and ATT people say so.  No one can tell me how to set up me email account on my new IPhone.  I use sbcglobal, but the incoming and outgoing setup is att.yahoo.com which IPhone doesn;t recognize.

Can anyone help solve the problem?

Thanks

    Exact same problem...not much more to say - previous writer said it well. Help...very annoyed that I paid so much for this phone and cannot access emails.

    Design Diva, here are my current settings that are working.

    incoming pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com

    outgoing smtp1.attglobal.net

    it's important that your Wifi setting be turned off. When in a situation where you need Wifi, you will need to turn it back on, but I have rarely had to do this.



    Also BeckyG, when you do not have a Yahoo account but rather an SBC account, the yahoo alone settings do not work.



    Hope this helps as I know how frustrating it is to have a new toy and not be able to use it fully.

    I've had my iPhone since December 2007 and the email, both coming in and going out, worked perfectly. Last week I tried to send a photo I had taken to a friend and I got this message:



    Connection to outgoing server "null" failed.



    Since then nothing has come in or gone out. Its like something is frozen up. Help. Richard

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.

    To set it up, under mail, set up as other, then put your signon for sbc and password, select pop and add pop.mail.yahoo.com and do the same with smtp. smtp.mail.yahoo.com.  Then it will configure it and then it should work.  That is what I did.  If your r still having problem email me at bgawat@sbcglobal.net. Good luck.

This is happening with my husband's phone as well, but not mine. But i use our WiFi home network all day and I think he uses the 3G ATT network. I wonder if that is the difference why he has mail problems and i do not.
Anything about secure ssl or port settings that need to change for SBCGLOBAL.net email settings on the iphone?

I have iphone version1.1.4 and never had a probelm until June 19,09 (when the new 3GOS was released). Now, I cannot send my yahoo e-mail from my phone. I can receive. I have deleted and reentered my yahoo account under settings. I have powered off and powered back up my phone.. no solution works. As I have never upgraded to the latest version I do not have the options to go under stml as apple troubleshoot suggest. Any help? My husbands phone has done the exact thing. Same version.

Bought an iPhone4 a few months ago, and can't seem to get the e-mail set up correctly. I can receive but cannot send from my phone. I've spoken to tech support both at Verizon and Road Runner over...


Well lets start with setting the email up to ensure it was setup correctly, which I assume it was based on the fact you can receive them.

1. Tap Mail
2. Select your account type (i.e. Gmail, yahoo, aol etc.)
3. Input your account information. Most email accounts configure automatically, if not, you will be prompted to input more info.
4.Save

If your account is an sbcglobal.net account, try running it simply as a yahoo! account and see if this fixes the problem as sbcglobal.net is yahoo as well and seems to encounter issues transmitting through phones on occasion. A sure way to rule this out is to try an different email account on the phone and send it an email to see if that is recieved. If it is, it would be a problem with the email address itself and not the phone settings. As I stated before, sbcglobal.net has had alot of problems with phone email.

Last few suggestions if neither of these two have worked as phones are very complex:

a. make sure wifi is off and that you can still browse the web through your data connection. if this checks out move on to b.

b.Reset your network settings under "settings", "general", "reset" "reset network settings". Your phone will reboot.

Is this program for yahoo accounts only? I assume, that in order to add a contact, I would enter their email address? The contact that I want to add has an email address that end "....@hotmail.com. Will it...


Yahoo IM is for those email accounts associated with Yahoo!, for example @att.net, sbcglobal.net or yahoo. Hotmail is associated with MSN and will not work with Yahoo IM because they are two rival companies. As far as your iPhone, Yahoo IM should work, but just to be on the safe side so you do not get charged for something that does not work, I would contact your phone provider.

Cannot receive email, although I can send it.


yes, sbcglobal.net is through ATT
If you have a new email provider you can forward your email using "true switch" you can find their link on the internet, true switch will notify all of your contacts that you have a new email address
this service is free and lasts for a few months

Using Outlook on my pc - disappearing email on my iPhone


Hi, Possibly this could be the reason. Your iPhone might have been setup with IMAP connection, and Outlook with POP3. In this case, once email is downloaded by Outlook, it will be deleted from the att.net server. So, go to Advanced in your Outlook account configuration and Select the option leave a copy on the server.

Then you will have to delete all the emails individually from your phone too.

Thanks

Set up an email acct on iphone


Same problem I had.

You have to talk with your IT guy, or whoever sets up your email accounts. They need to change your mobile preferences to allow your email to be used on a mobile device.

Also, they can give you the correct settings for the incoming and outgoing server mailboxes (almost impossible to find on your own).

Outlook on the exchange server is compatible with iPhones through IMAP.
