SOURCE: i can't enter on my yahoo account information on my iphone

1. Go to "Settings" 2. Select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" 3. Select "Add Account...." 4. Select "Yahoo! Mail" 5. Type for NAME (your user name), Address (full Yahoo email address), Password (your password), Description (do not type your yahoo email address, choose something different, like "My Yahoo Account")
The problem most likely is in the Description ... if you type your email address here, it may give the error that the server cannot connect. I changed mine to "My Account" and the server connected.

Find my ClDAV password iphone 4s


phone ask me caldav password what is that
There's not much I can add. I have a Yahoo! account I do not use much. I also have had issues because of this. I mainly use Google and do not have any issues getting that mail via my 5C. I even use Chrome as browser sometimes, but find most iPhones seem to prefer the native Safari.
Initially try: Settings > Mail,Contacts,Calendars > right chevron on Yahoo! > right chevron on Account = make sure your password is showing here or reenter > Done (if you do not enter the correct password here, you should get a caution message).
I only allow Mail. CalDAV would be a calendar sync problem. Turn it off if you do not use it. ...that should do it.
Good luck!

Why will google not send my emails from gmail?


  1. Check that your device is connected to the Internet by opening Safari and loading a webpage, such as google.com. If you cannot connect to the Internet, try the steps in this article.
  2. If you have other email accounts on the device, check if those accounts can send and receive email.
  3. If the issue is isolated only to the affected Gmail account, visit this website:https://www.google.com/accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha.
    Complete the form to unlock the account.
  4. If the issue persists, follow this Google support article.
  5. Once the account has been unlocked, or the correct password entered, check that the issue is resolved. If not, remove the affected Gmail account from the device and add it to the device again: Settings > Mail, Contacts and Calendars > Add Account > Gmail.

I am using Ipad 2 and can receive emails but I am unable to send email


Since you are able to receive mails on your IPad 2 but can't send email, you should follow these instructions properly and it will be corrected.

1. Turn on all SMTP servers

On the IPad 2 click on Settings then Mail, Calendars, Contacts and under Accounts select the account your are trying to fix
Select Account
Scroll down to Outgoing Servers and tap on SMTP
SMTP
Click on all the Other SMTP Servers to switch them on
Other SMTP Servers

2. Set up your email account on the IPad 2 itself rather than syncing them from your computer

Open iTunes on your computer, connect your IPad 2 with the USB cable, and then select IPad 2 in the Devices section
Select the Info tab
Unselect the check box next to Sync Mail Accounts
Click Apply
When the IPad 2 has finished its sync, disconnect it from the computer
On the IPad 2 click on Settings then Mail, Calendars, Contacts
Click on Add Account and then follow the onscreen Wizard. When you enter your email address the IPad 2 will try to get the settings automatically. If that doesn't work you will have to get the set-up details from your email provider
Check your email again to see if the issue is resolved

3. Restart your IPad 2

Press and hold down the Sleep/wake button on the top of the IPad 2 until the red slider appears
Move the slider to switch the IPad 2 off
Press and hold the Sleep/wake button to restart the IPad 2

When i click on mail only box that appears is trash dont know where new mailbox has gone?


Try deleting your account and then adding it again.
You can do this by click on Settings from your homescreen, and then selecting Mail, Contacts, Calendars. From there, select the account with the issue, and then press Delete Account. This should take you back to the Mail, Contacts, Calendars menu, where you can add the account again. Doing this will not delete any of the messages from your account.

Why can I receive emails on my iPhone 4, but cannot send them? I am using my 'btopenworld.com' address that i use on my home PC. Thanks, Carol


Hi,

Did you sync your mail info onto your phone or enter it yourself? If synced try to enter it yourself, Ive posted the steps for it below

Ive posted some steps below for you to try and they should help!! If not best bets is to setup a a free GMail, Yahoo, or AOL account and forward your mail to that account.


Hope this does help

1 - In Settings, turn on other SMTP servers
  1. Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and under Accounts, tap the account from which you're trying to send mail:
    ts1426_01---002-en.png
  2. Scroll down to where it says Outgoing Mail Server and tap the box where it says SMTP:
    ts1426_02---002-en.png
  3. Scroll down to where it says AT&T SMTP Server, and tap it turn it on.
    ts1426_03---002-en.png
    ts1426_04---002-en.png
    Or, turn on all other SMTP Servers.
    ts1426_05---002-en.png

2 - Add your email account on iPhone instead of syncing your mail settings from your computer
  1. Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and under accounts, tap Add Account.
    ts1426_06---002-en.png
    ts1426_07---002-en.png
  2. Follow the instructions. When you enter your email address, iPhone will look up your service provider's settings for you.If the iPhone cant find the settings then follow this link - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1277 - to a sheet that will give you what you need to ask your service provider to setup your email correctly.

3 - Turn iPhone off and then on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
ts1426_8.pngTo turn iPhone on press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
