  • I've had my virgin.net account set up on my iPhone/iPad for sometime now. Since Tuesday I have been receiving the following error message "The mail server 'imap4.virgin.net' is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account info in mail settings. I haven't changed any of the details since it was last sending/receiving mail. Any suggestions? I have tried deleting my account and reinstalling it but it's not giving me an option of setting it up as IMAP .

  • PS: Referring to my previous message. This problem is new, I have not had trouble before so would expect the 'Settings' to be OK.
