Yesterday it appears that I cannot no longer receive or send emails on my iPhone 5 and I have been trying to figure out why?
I have this morning reset my Password as GMX detected some interference on my site which was probably me trying to access my account. I can log into GMX on my Home PC but unable to use access on my iPhone for some reason.
Can you Help Plaese?
Kind Regards

Have just changed my service provider from BT to EE & every time I try to send an email an Operations box message comes up saying that 'Connecting to Jane Hartung failed. SMPT attempt to connect failed, this could be caused by temporary server unavailability or incorrect settings. I have checked out the settings but the Operations message only reappears again. Please help, thank you, Jane Hartung
