virginmedia email settings for Spark


I was wondering whether anyone has had success setting up a virginmedia email account with the email client Spark.  I have been trying in vain.  I particularly wanted to confirm that I am putting in the settings correctly (ports, servers, security protocols, etc.), so please look at the two screenshots from the imaginary mailbox

Thanks in advance for the tips.

Re: virginmedia email settings for Spark

Experienced no issues with automated or manual settings – latter's settings do not differ from those mentioned in your post:

To help troubleshoot the issue consider trying the following:

  • does the same issue occur when setting up the same account in Mail?
  • if you have access to a desktop / laptop device connected to the same network then try opening a Command Shell or Terminal window and enter the following where username:password is replaced with your email address and password, i.e.
    curl -v smtps:// -u username:password

    Do not post the resulting output here but instead review it for possible reported causes and then post just the redacted part here or the VM error code.
