More about sending email on iPhone 5....
I've seen posts about an issue with iPhones and iPads that prevent emails from being sent. When I received a message that one of my messages was "undeliverable", I thought my account was hacked since I had never sent such an email. So...I changed my password.
After doing that, I was unable to send a message from ANY of my cox.net email accounts on my iPhone or iPad. After reading forums the past several days and speaking with customer service, I've tried the following:
-Deleting and setting up an email account from scratch.
-Changing SMTP servers (currently on smtp.west.cox.net)
-SMTP cox.net didn't work either
-Changing (or attempting to change) ports. I've used 9xx (when setting up automatically), 587, 465 and 25.
-Turning off password authentication
-Turning on/off SSL
- Every combination of the above.
Still, nothing works. Messages are that the server rejected my username OR verification timed out when trying to change ports. I even tried going back to my previous password.
This is frustrating. Why would it happen because I changed my password, aside from the fact that my modem has been on drugs the past couple of weeks? I think they MIGHT have fixed that though.
