I can't set up my email on my new iPad. I have a Tesco address. It does not seem to work. Is there a problem with it. Does it need to be a talk talk email?

Mary Dawson 14-01-2017 13:33


My e mail doesn't accept incoming or outgoing mail and I have re entered the password but it's not right? I recently had some one allegedly from Talktalk hack into my computer and wonder if something gone a wry?- I have used a new password on 'my Talktalk account'- should I delete the set on the phone and set up again?- however it would be easier if you can help retrieve the old password that I used to set up the phone so I can change it to another one. The apple shop did say that Talktalk e mail set up is very difficult? I appreciate for security you may not supply however if you have access could you just send to my mobile another password?
