Re: Ntlworld wmail not working on iPhone

Apple products have an odd niggle. This sticky post has some useful advice on how to make it work.  Let us know how you get on.

Re: Ntlworld wmail not working on iPhone

Tried going through those instructions but no luck, rang virgin and they asked what app I was using for emails when I said none it wasn’t registering with them that I didn’t use one with the iPhone I just went to add account in the email settings.

Re: Ntlworld wmail not working on iPhone

If you are using something called email or mail or something like that on your device, that is called an email client or an email app.  Does it look like this?

Don't bother with the VM help line, they don't have any patience for people who are not technically literate.  We will talk you through it.

Do you have an active VM broadband service?

Re: Ntlworld wmail not working on iPhone

Okay, now I'm going to help you verify that the address is working via the system VM have provided.  We'll get to the iPhone soon.

So the next question : can you sign in to your billing account at my virgin media? Use any web browser for this step, please.  It can be on your phone or a PC/laptop.

https://my.virginmedia.com/home/index

Then, please verify that the address you want to use today is linked to that billing account.  (don't give us your personal details, just yes or no)

You'll need to look on the My profile tab, or the Manage accounts tab, see the photos here:

Re: Ntlworld email not working on iPhone

Great.  Then we just have to be sure that webmail is working for you.  Although it uses different servers to those that an email client connects to, it is good to be sure it works first to rule out any mailbox issues in the VM system.

So can you send and receive using webmail?  https://mail2.virginmedia.com/

Re: Ntlworld email not working on iPhone

Good. That means there are (probably) no back end issues with your account or address.

Now we reach the part to set up the email address on your iPhone.  I've not walked anyone through this before, so please be patient.  We had problems on my husband's iPad in 2014, and it took a long time to work out why.  When I did, I made a cheat sheet to help me. Then I came across Ravenstar68's help file on the same problem.  You can open that thread now: https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Ipad-Iphone-SMTP-why-deleting-and-recreating-an-account-D...

Remember, I can't see your device or screen - some of the screens might look a little different, but the general principle is the same.  (and I'm at work, without access to any similar device!)

Do you have any other email addresses being used in the iphone app?  Like gmail, or a work address, etc?  I just wonder if they are working as you wish?
