BT Email POP Server Settings

I don't know if this is readily available elsewhere, but when I was having trouble getting mail to work on my iPad recently, a helpful Sage (Keith_Beddoe) in our community her gave me these settings which worked very well for me. Presumably of use to anyone wishing to use a POP email client on any platform.

BT Internet POP Mail Settings

POP3
Server: mail.btinternet.com
Port: 995 (this should be automatically populated if you tick SSL Encryption)
SSL Encryption: Enabled (but not STARTTLS)
Username: your email address including the @btinternet or @btopenworld.com part
Password: your btinternet password
POP from folder: By default, POP will pull emails from your Inbox
SMTP
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.btinternet.com
Port: 465 (this may not be automatically populated on selection of SSL, so you'll need to check this)
SSL Encryption: Enabled (but not STARTTLS)
Authentication: PLAIN
Username: your email address including the @btinternet or @btopenworld.com part
Password: your btinternet password

Hope this helps someone else. The Ed Port settings are different from those given in some of BT's help pages but they definitely work for me on send and receive. Good luck !

Re: BT Email POP Server Settings

They are on the BT Website: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/44917

 

You have to dig into the help pages under "BT Mail".
