This may happen due to hotmail server down. Please check your credentials as well under accounts>properties. If no success after some time, then could try adding another account under
accounts > Email and see if that works.
Hope this helps.
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 mail.iinet.net .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 "mail.iinet.net.au" in my case. Underneath is another heading called.
OTHER SMTP SERVERS
in here I enter the mail server that the mobile phone company uses... mail.bigpond.com (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
You forgot your password. Hotmail has many solutions of getting back forgoten password.
Hotmail account password reset : -Send password or any activation link to the Alternative Email adress. -By answering an security question. -Completing an formular which Hotmail team review it if your informations were correct. -Sending code to phone.
Hello, This is nothing to do with hotmail..it is your setting..I assume that you made it all necessary inputs thru -*setting-*mail account-*add an account- * enter hotmail info and you are done.. Than you make that account -*Active -and go to main menu to click -*Receive mail-(you must have a wi-fi connection too) your mails should be downloaded into iPhone.Hope you will succeed. If problem continues send me an email that I can send you the some screen pictures of iphone for this setting. Regards.
I'm not sure if this is of any help to anyone but these are the steps I used to set up email on my Monte. I'm using an old hotmail account that didn't support IMAP or SMTP properly. 1.Set Up a GMail account eg. email@example.com 2.Set GMail to allow IMAP via the settings link the the top right hand corner. (under Forwarding and POP/IMAP) 3.Under accounts and import set up the send mail as to send mail as firstname.lastname@example.org. Set this to default send adress 4.In the same tab under check mail using pop3 set up the pop3 to recieve from someone@ hotmail.co.uk 5.Under Email Accounts on the Monte set up email with the following charecteristics: Account Name: Hotmail SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com SMTP Port: 465 Secure Connection: SSL Incoming Server Type: IMAP4 IMAP4 Server: imap.gmail.com IMAP Port: 993 APOP login: greyed out Secure Connection: SSL Download Limit: 500 IMAP4 incoming email: New Retrieving option: Whole Message Keep on server: checked My email adress: someone@ hotmail.co.uk (This is the adress the phone puts in the from line of an email) Username: email@example.com Password: gmail password Pop before smtp: greyed out SMTP auth: checked Same as POP3/IMAP4: checked Username: greyed out Passowrd: greyed out This should allow you to recieve new messages from the time you set up the gmail account on your phone and to send emails with all the appearences of coming from your hotmail account while actually coming from google's smtp server. Really do check that the GMail is set up properly, make sure it recieves emails adressed to your hotmail and that it sends in your hotmail account's name.
