Sounds like you are entering your username  Londongal@btinternet.com or your password incorrectly.   Not sure what to suggest other than double check.  Can you log on to BT Yahoo webmail?

Yes, I have entered the information correctly and I am able to get access via Safari but not when I try to set up email.  very annoying

Re: Has anyone successfully set up their btinternet email account on Iphone?

OK, step by step - my iPhone is set up as follows

 

Account ON

 

Name - My name

Address - myname@btinternet.com

Password - BT Yahoo password

Description - myname@btinternet.com

 

SMTP  - Yahoo! SMTP Server

 

If I remember correctly, when I first set it up, you have the choice to use a pre-configured Yahoo account (amongst several others) - I used that rather than trying to set it up manually.

 

Go to Add Account and try again with a Yahoo account if all else fails!
