  • Same issue as many people have noted below - I can receive but cannot send emails with the account on my iPhone. It works fine from my computer, and used to work fine from my phone until a few days ago. I've tried everything, including changing my password, but I keep getting the error when I try to send a message: "Cannot Send Mail: The user name or password for xxx is incorrect." Anyone solved this yet?
