iPAD e-mail setup IMAP Settings

Hi Forum

I have just had the worst technical support ever from Virgin on the phone just now - Utterly Useless!

I have an Ipad Mini and I want to use it for a Virginmedia e-mail account.

Please can someone help me with IMAP settings (Incoming and Outgoing) to get set up using the apple e-mail client.

Thx....Rob

Re: iPAD e-mail setup IMAP Settings

They're actually the same as for any other mail client.

As a general rule, provided it's a brand new account and not one that's been deleted and re-added due to a password change.  You shouldn't need to worry about the specifics.  Just follow the setup wizard.

However for completeness here are the general settings you need.

Inbound - IMAP

Server       - imap.virginmedia.com
Username - Your full email address - e.g. joebloggs@virginmedia.com
Password - (speaks for itself)
Port          - 993
SSL          - On - slider should be green

Outbound - SMTP

Server - smtp.virginmedia.com
Username and password should be entered as per the inbound settings.
Port: 465
SSL - On
Authentication type - Password.

If you're still having trouble message back and let us know what is happening.

Thank you - This works perfectly.

I wasted 28mins of my life on the phone with Virgin India - Useless

This was all I needed

Again - Thanks 🙂
