  • My incoming email works fine on my iPad but I am unable to enter the correct settings for my outgoing ntlworld.com email. Should I still be using ‘smtp.ntlworld.com’ as the outgoing server or something else? Possibly, I am using the wrong password. Would you send the current one to me or send me a changed version please? Any help would be appreciated.

  • I have set up my iPhone 4 (a hand me down!) and verified the email settings after applying the IMAP protocol. All the historical email data loaded onto the iPhone, including sent and received emails. I can receive emails but I am unable to sendl. I keep receiving the "Cannot send Mail" message stating that the username or password for "melanieprice@virginmedia.com" is incorrect. The problem defies all rational explanation and I have spent all day attempting to find a solution by trial and error. I woulds be grateful for your advice please.
