I've changed phones and want to transfer my BT email to either a Samsung email programme or GMail - not bothered. I've checked all the IMAP settings etc. but keep getting the message that my username or password can't be verified. Now I know my password (I use BT webmail regularly) and am using my BT email address as the username, but I'm wondering if the problem is that I have an older BT account where my username isn't my BT email address.
I'm also experiencing this problem on a laptop - different email programme.
Has anyone encountered this problem? I'm not sure I want to change my BT account password if this isn't the problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have now resolved this - not sure what the explanation is - but I dug out my BT paperwork and went through EVERY SINGLE password I've every held on this account and lo and behold, I got in with an old password dating back to around 2017.
I've seen something referring to an issue with IOS phones (I'm android) when passwords get changed - so thought I would try this.
