Hi, I'm trying to set up a POP3 e-mail account on an I-Pad. I have been 50% successful, I can receive E-Mails but I'm unable to send. I believe I have the wrong details recorded. I would appreciate if someone from the community can provide the necessary info. I think the username that I have input is incorrect. I have just put in my name. Also, what should the outgoing server settings be, Port number and anything else I need, are there any boxes which need ticked.

Thanks

Hi @AGH55

 

Username and password are the email address and email password exactly as you entered for the incoming settings.

 

What email domain are you setting up? talktalk.net / tiscali.co.uk or an other?

 

Outgoing port is usually 587

Security is either STARTTLS or SSL or SSL/TLS

Outgoing authentication is required

Hi, thanks for your reply, and sorry for the delay in responding. The port details on the setup for the outgoing server were wrong, I changed to 587. I'm now able to send e-mails.
