I've started getting the Cannot verify server identity for of the server "mail.talktalk.net".
This has only started today and I have checked settings as per the pinned post by the OCE's.
Phone 8 on the lastest IOS and im using the standard Apple mail app.

Hi all, there is an incident open for those who can't get this working with a remove and readd. You can track the progress on the service status page.

Didn’t work for me either! I have two TalkTalk emails addresses both now working on iPhone but one doesn’t work on the iPad and one does! Both set up the same as far as I can see. Issues started on Friday while I was in the US so I thought it was a local issue but now home I can’t resolve.

Obviously the lack of any response from the Community Team must mean they don't know how to fix our problem.
Contacting 'Chat' advisors - even technical managers - is pointless.
A couple of months back I had a problem with my Homecall email - it took weeks to sort and was only resolved when I had to escalate the issue by a written complaint to the CEO's complaints dept.. Even then it took a lot of hassle until I eventually got a call from a guy who knew what he was talking about and resolved it in minutes!!
I then set-up a TalkTalk email address - which I didn't have - it worked fine for a few weeks and now this. Beggars believe...

I too have found that turning SSL off, hitting done, and then turning SSL on again works - but only for 4 out of five accounts. The fifth account has a fault recognising the password which I have checked as correct.

I, too, am having this problem. I've tried all suggestions on this topic to solve it and Mail still doesn't recognise my username/password. I also changed my talktalk email password which didn't help. I can, however, still access my emails on my talktalk account.
The problem is on all my Mac devices, Imac, Iphone & Ipad.
I deleted my talktalk accounts and then tried adding them again - without success.
Interestingly, after submitting my talktalk email and password details, both my Iphone & Ipad come up with this message:
'THE OUTGOING MAIL SERVER SETTING PROVIDED IS INTENDED FOR O2 CUSTOMERS IN THE UK. O2 CUSTOMERS SHOULD ENTER THEIR O2 EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE PRIMARY OUTGOING MAIL SERVER USERNAME FIELD AND THEIR PASSWORD'

what worked for me and is key (I don't guarantee the same for you), is the fact that once I turned off SSL, I had to step backwards clicking '<Account' and then 'Done' so that it re-verifies without SSL and ticks appear alongside your TalkTalk credentials. I then went back in, turned on SLL and then back out the same way clicking 'Done' so that it re-verifies with SSL.
If that's what you did and it did not work I hope you can find a solution. Fortunately, it has worked for some other forum members.

This issue goes a lot deeper. Not only is the certificate out of date if using an iOS system but on my iMac using either Apple Mail or Thunderbird the TT server is not recognising passwords. If you get this message and type the correct password in it fails.
I am now effectively locked out of email reception except for my gmail account and my Apple account. This tells me TT is screwed.
I have followed the link in another post (by TT) concerning the effect of the new authentication system and have checked all my settings and passwords. They are all correct.
When is talktalk going to fix this?

I have five talk talk email accounts, one gmail and the Apple “me” account. The last two are working fine. One or all of the TT account cause the error. This I have proven by turning off all accounts and then turning each one on separately.
this issue only appears on my iPad Air iOS 11.4
i have gone through each account changing the SSL setting off/on, re-entering the password and changing the port number. Nothing works. The weird part of this is that I can send emails on all these accounts (if I can get it sent before the error message pops up - every 5 or 6 seconds) and I can as far as I know receive emails.
i also notice that the error message states that the certificate is out of date despite the date given being Sometime in December 2018!!

I deleted the tiscali account on my iPad, switched iPad off and then on again after a minute or two and then added “new” tiscali account. Hey Presto now all works fine!!!

I am getting this error as well - every five or six seconds. As soon as you cancel the dialog box it comes up again. Only happening on an ipad (iOS 11.4) and it makes the device useless because it continually tries to connect, even if Mail is not running.
It is not happening on my iMac using Thunderbird.
I have checked all the setting on the iPad - this took some time - and the accounts (5 of them are set correctly with correct passwords).
Please fix it!!!!!!

just in case you didn't fo far enough....when I say 'backed out' of settings I mean:
1. Turn SSL off, then click ' < Account' to return one step.
2. Click 'Done', this triggers the verification. Ticks should appear alongside you connection settings.
3.Go back in and turn SSL on re-do '< Account' and 'Done' Hopefully ticks again and no more messages. if you have several accounts like me, you might need to repeat on each account.
Hope it works for you but sorry if it doesn't.

@S_E_F Your issue isn't this issue. Your mailbox repair has been requested on your own thread.
But with the authentication issues of this thread then removing an email account, starting with a fresh setup or indeed changing port numbers or security setup, all to trigger the reauthentication 'magically', are good workarounds as people are finding.
