Sending e-mail on iPhone

I receive e-mail on my iPhone from my RoadRunner e-mail account, but I cannot send e-mail from the iPhone (unless I am at home and the iPhone is picking up my the wireless signal from my router).

So when away from home, my iPhone downloads the e-mail from my RoadRunner e-mail account, but I cannot reply using the iPhone or originate and send new e-mail from the iPhone.

BTW, the same thing happens with MS Outlook on my laptop when travelling. When I connect to a hotel supplied Internet connection, Outlook will download my e-mails from RR, but I cannot use Outlook to reply or originate new e-mails.

Got any suggestions?
I can receive emailos but I am unable to send emails?

    I think you will have to configure a way to reply to the e-mails with an outgoing mail account.

SOURCE: Sending e-mail on iPhone

Setting up incoming pop email from Road Runner to iPhone is straightforward.

Setting up outgoing email is not.

In general, Road Runner requires that you be connected to their network through one of their cable modems in order to use their outgoing SMTP server. Since, an iPhone will never be connected this way, you need to find an alternate way.

There are at least three ways I know of:
1) Send your outgoing mail through Cingular or AT&T's smtp server. This works and is no extra charge, but it has the disadvantage that it only works through the slower EDGE network - not through WIFI.
2) I understand that Google offers free email, and through their free email, you can use their outgoing SMTP servers for your RR account.
3) You can sign up with an outgoing SMTP service like www.authsmtp.com. I use this method. It costs about $25 per year. Your outgoing email works through both EDGE and wifi, and it appears to the recipient as if it came directly from RR.

I recommend either option 2 or 3. The google way is more for a do-it-yourselfer. The authsmtp way is a paid service, so there are good instructions and support. I have several months left with authsmtp, but at some point I may switch to Google. 

I did number 3 and its fantastic!!

Having problem opening emails on iphone i


Many iPhone users are facing a lot of problems with email. They are facing problems in sending or receiving email messages. The email account configured in the user's iPhone has been popping strange problems. Sometimes it simply refuses to accept any incoming mails and at other times it suffers from problems in the retrieval of mails.

  • Configure your email account directly on iPhone and not from your computer
    • Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and from there only add your email accounts under Accounts by tapping the Add Account option.
  • Turn of Wi-Fi and try fetching your mails by using the Cellular Data network
  • Try restarting your iPhone by pressing the sleep/wake up button for few seconds on turning it back on

After trying these options your iPhone should be back with your email account working perfectly fine. Otherwise you may need to visit the nearest Apple Store.

Why isn't sending info from my iphone 5c to my gmail not working? How can I fix it?


When you say you email stuff to your gmail account, what account are you using as the sender's account? There could be different reasons but the easiest way is to go to SETTINGS, MAILS, CONTACTS, CALENDARS, and reenter passwords for all the email accounts you have on your phone. That should do the magic.

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.

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, smtp-server.roadrunner.com or some other rr server)
Host Name
Change Host Name to cwmx.com
User Name
Leave blank
Password
Leave blank

SSL
Make sure SSL is off
Authentication
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 xxx@nyc.rr.com Scroll to incoming mail server: type in pop-server.nyc.rr.com user name (that's the first part of your e-mail addresss before the @nyc.rr.com) your password (the one you used setting up your account with roadrunner) scroll down to outgoing mail server host name: cwmx.com:587 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!

Sending emails using GMail on the iPhone


To fix the responding issue, you need to tell your iphone which account is the default account for sending your emails.

touch settings, then mail, and at the bottom of that page in the sending section it asks which account is your default.

The iphone will always use this accoutn to send emails if you start an email outside of the mail program, like by clicking an email in your contacts list or on a webpage.

Now if your in another POP account in the mail program and you click compose message it should be sent from that account.

Hope this helps :)
