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
From your problem description it appears that you know how to operate the phone. Before looking into further advanced setup options, you should know that the problem might be with your service package: MMS and internet service must be enabled by your cellular service provider.
Try contacting your cellular provider to enable your MMS and internet in your service package.
If that is not the problem, please reply for further information.
You can send the photo via bluetooth provided the person you are trying to send it to is close to you. All you need to do is to turn on the bluetooth of the phone and turn on the bluetooth on the receivers phone, then you select the photo you want to send, then you select the options and select send, it will ask how you want to send it, select via bluetooth, then it will search for the xevice you are trying to send it to, then the mobile you want to send it to will be visible on your bluetooth list, then you select it and send the photo, it will load a page and send the picture for you.
You can also send the picture using mms, that way you will have to set the configuration settings on your phone to do so.
You need to have the internet and mms configuration settings of your phone before you will be able to send or receive any mms.
Contact the customer care of the sim service provider so as to know the settings, they can configure it for you automatically, of give you a manual settings information also, they can give you a short code that will give you easy activation access.
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.
