clarification on the previous post, this only lets you read your emails from your NTLWorld account ... it does not let you send emails .... the configuration needs a bit more tweaking for that .... if I get that part figured out, I will repost the original post
I bought an ipad 2 a couple of days ago. My email status is currently as follows:
I have a work email address which I normally operate on from a laptop at an office I have in London. Sometimes I want to work from home being self employed.
I also have a private hotmail email address.
I have wifi at home through virginmedia
Currently on my ipad in an Unsecured wifi access area (i.e. like the wifi at the apple store where I bought the ipad), I can receive and send emails from mw work email account on my ipad.
When at home on my security enabled home wifi, on my ipad, I can access the internet, I can receive work emails linto my work account, BUT I cannot send any emails from work email account (other than to myself, and that's weird).
I can both send and recieve emails at home from my hotmail account.
The message I get when I try to send an email from y work account at home is
"A copy has been placed in your Outbox. Verify that you have addressed this message correctly. Check your SMTP server settings in Mail Preferences and verify any advanced settings with your system administrator."
Can you help or point me where I should address my question.
Hi, after many hours of frustration I have just managed to get my @ntlworld.com email working on my ipad after reading all the posts on here and other threads.
Firstly I went onto My Virgin media email account and changed the password!!! On the ipad I then entered my new password, and the servers as imap.virginmedia.com and smtp.virginmedia.com. Almost immediately the emails came through. However when I tried to send an email it wouldn't work. I had to change the settings of the smtp server to my new password and to port 465. This worked for me. Thanks to everyone for posting the various suggestions. Good luck!!
