Ntlworld account not sending Emails in Apple mail App

Good evening 

It seems that I am now experiencing issues that others have experienced in the past as regards emails being received but not being sent while utilising my Ntlworld account in Apple mail on iPad pro.

My  Ntlworld account seems to be functioning normally while using webmail in Safari however in the last 72 hours I have been unable to send emails but still receive them while using Ntlworld account in Apple mail. I have searched the forums high and low and followed various threads of advice but still experiencing the same issue no matter what advice I follow. I have followed this particular thread to the letter https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Ipad-Iphone-SMTP-why-deleting-and-recreating-an-account-D..., but I still receive the same message after deleting and reinstating the account...unable to connect via SSL.... I have changed passwords and went through the whole rigmarole again but without success.Ive rebooted hub rebooted ipad and still no joy and tonight. i checked my wife’s ipad and it is experiencing the same issue. I recently updated my ipad software to ipadOS 13.1.2.

I do not have access to a lap top or desktop so any solutions involving itunes are out

Appreciate it if anyone could

Re: Ntlworld account not sending Emails in Apple mail App

I have a suspicion of what this very well could be, ordinarily we'd be asking the user to get some diagnostic logging information from the PC but that's not going to be easy in your case with just the native mail app on iOS - I don't think it exposes any logging information at all - at least not easily.

In the meantime, just as an experiment, is there a neighbour you can pop into who has wifi (doesn't have to be VM) or some other place with accessible wifi and see if the mail app connects when it's not on your home wifi?

Re: Ntlworld account not sending Emails in Apple mail App

It’s possible that I could do the logging in from elsewhere however yesterday I switched off the connection between my ipad and my wi-fi and tried to use my O2 mobile data with the same result.  My mate who lives locally and has the same set up is not experiencing any issues

thanks for your reply

Re: Ntlworld account not sending Emails in Apple mail App

Jem 101 you gave me an idea which I have tried, I deleted Ntlworld account from Apple mail while my wifi was switched off and rebooted ipad . I then re-added my Ntlworld account using mobile data while wi-fi was still switched off and hey presto Ntlworld was sending e-mails, I’ve yet to switch my wifi back on to see what happens

Re: Ntlworld account not sending Emails in Apple mail App

I’ve now switched the wi-fi  back on and Ntlworld has reverted to not sending emails. Can anyone explain if this an Apple issue or will I need to contact Virgin Media direct

Look up your public IP address and then see if it is blacklisted on spamhaus (CSS list IIRC).  That is the most likely problem and is up to you to find what devices are harbouring malware.

Check here https://www.spamhaus.org/lookup/

Hi Mickbhoy

Did you run a full virus scan on every device in the property

Re: Ntlworld account not sending Emails in Apple mail App

Hi Mickbhoy

 

A firestick runs on android which can carry a virus, especially if a 3rd party program has been added to it. You would need to set this back to factory settings 

 

iPads and iPhones  are not susceptible to malware or viruses providing you haven't jail broken them or modified them in any way 

 

Aria scales, you would need to make sure that these are set to factory settings then updated to the latest firmware

 

Playstations are practically bullet proof and most hackers would steer clear as,ost are used for gaming
