Suspect this may have been covered somewhere before, but can't find anything. I can receive emails on my iPhone, but can't send them. Have tried setting up SMTP host as mail.btinternet.com with my email address as the user name and my password. But just doesn't verify. Error message is "The SMTP server 'mail.btinternet.com' is not responding. Check...blah blah blah". Can anyone help please?
I have my XXXXXX@btinternet.com email address set up on my iPhone and it's functioning properly. I am using mail.btinternet.com as my servers with no problem.
Here are my settings verbatim so you can compare:
Account - ON
POP account information
Name - your name
Address - email@example.com
Description - firstname.lastname@example.org
incoming mail server
Host name - mail.btinternet.com
User name - your.name
Password - yourpassword
Outgoing mail server
SMTP - mail.btinternet.com
Remove - After one day
Use SSL - Off
Authentication - Password
Delete from server - Never
Server port - 110
Hopefully this has been some help to you.
Thanks for the response. I double checked the settings and had exactly the same as you. The problem seemed to be the SMTP server not responding. So just to try something different I turned off Wifi on the phone and tried to set up a new account. Suddenly it worked. Turned Wifi back on. Didn't work. Rebooted phone. Everything works!
Also set up my wife's account last night on her iPhone. No trouble at all.
Technology can be weird at times...and very frustrating with it!
