Ditto on the reboot...definitely required!
I searched many links in hopes of finding a fix for my outgoing email problem with my iPad, and finally found the one posted by "sugi", 6-3-10, on this forum, which said:
Just realize the set up is different from my iPhone. For iPad I need user ID and password for outgoing smtp sever. Hope to others who have similiar problem setting up your pop email, please input your user ID and password for smtp outgoing: :-)
Then on 7-20-10, "Alling" said a restart was needed to make the above fix take, and there were those afterward that said the restart wasn't needed.
When I first set up my email account, when I got to the outgoing mail server, I put in the correct Host Server name, then noticed that below that, where there are fields for User Name and Password, and both were labeled "optional", so I didn't enter anything at all in them.
Once I read sugi's fix, I went back in, entered my user name and password for the outgoing mail server, and still had no luck trying to send an email. Figuring I had nothing to lose by trying it, I took Alling's advice, turned the iPad all the way off, turned it on again, and now everything is working as it's supposed to! Doing the restart is a really simple thing to try if the first suggestion doesn't seem to work.
I'm new to this forum, and this is my first post. I have a new 64GB iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, and an iPhone 3G that's two years old. I've never had problems emailing with the iPhone.
Hi there I am new to forum so hope not doing something very stupid so apologies in advance. I am having outgoing email trouble and guess it relates to the password bit as above I just don't know what is correct username and password - is username my full email address and password for incoming mail?
I can't say for sure that everyone's user name is configured the way our ISP does it, but for me, my user name is the first part of my email address to the left of, but not including the "@" symbol.
I'm having trouble too with everything I try to access, like apps: games. It asks me for an ID and password, no matter what I insert, it says that password has been used in the last year.........can't I use the same password for all my apps? I can't remember from 1 day to the next what password I've used b/c I have to just keep
trying different ones until it accepts it and then I'm lost, so, in 2 mo. I've not been
able to access the games app. Even when I give my apple ID and password, it tends to spit it back at me eventho I know its right. I haven't even turned it on today, I'm just so discouraged and feel so totally dumb. My email I set up same as my PC email, thats all I know how to do, and I can only send, not receive. Have no clue how to find the internet either. Nothing on the iPad makes any sense to me at all.
I don't get it, but then this is the first Apple product I've ever owned.
I had the same problems sending email as was noted in the original post, but I followed Antsplan instructions to reenter user ID and password and now outgoing mail is working OK. I did restart the iPad and when I open mail a couple of outgoing messages were immediately sent. Thanks for the help
Have joined just to thank you. You have solved my email problem. But you do have to redraft iPad. At least I had to.
Thank you very much again
