Since changing my phone, I have not been able to configure my BT Internet email account to recieve emails by phone. This has been going on for over a month. Does anyone know what what is causing this?
When I try and install the account, I have to use the "MAIL.BTCONNECT.COM" SERVER (since my account is currently a business account)
Someone please tell me what is going on
My account is due to be moved back to Residential (my email is @btinternet.com)
I dont have an easy way to report the problem in the business forum (they screwed up my online profile)
If you cant help me just because my account has not yet converted to residential, then fine - I will wait until 12 Aug and then it will be converted.
Just seems bureacratic
If your email account is a btconnect.com account this forum members or moderators can not help because they do not have access to the BT resources to assist.
If it is a btinternet.com email account make sure you are using the correct server settings as per this link
I have set the settings to the reccomended.
But it simply says the the BT servers are not responding or it says the credentials are wrong (even though I can use the credentials and log into the email on a browser)
Here are the settings:
Host Name: mail.btinternet.com
User name email@example.com
Passwrd : xxxxxxxx
SSL Use SSL
Host name: mail.btinternet.com
User name: firstname.lastname@example.org
Passwrd : xxxxxxxx
If you are not currently a btinternet customer or paying for premium mail, the mail account will be Basic mail which is only available via webmail.
My account is now residential. my email ends in btinternet.com and when I enter the details to configure my emails, all I get is --- The IMAP server "mail.btinternet.com" is not responding.
Cant someone from BT help sort this out?
so are you now a BT broadband residential customer with an @btinternet.com email address?
can you log in to your new btinternet.com account using a web browser?
ve always had a btinternet.com email and I have alsways been able to login via browser.
