I recently upgraded my iPhone to iOS8 and now I’m having issues with my dreamhost email. No matter what I do I keep getting an error message that my username or password are incorrect. I guarantee I’m using the correct username and password… I’ve quadruple checked (many times over by now) that they’re the exact same as what I type to successfully access my webmail, and they’re the exact same as what I used to get mail working on my Mac (which is working correctly)… yet I continue to get the message!
I’ve set everything up as reguired:
I’m using IMAP, my hosts are set to: mail.mydomain.com and I’m using my full email address as my login, i.e.; (email@example.com)
SSL: on, Authentication: Password, Port 993 (incoming) & Port 587 (outgoing). IMAP path prefix: / (I’ve also tried using INBOX as is apparently required in the Mail app on Mac).
Despite all this, I continue to get the same error. There are only 2 differences now than when it used to work on my phone before… I’m now using iOS8 and I recently changed my account password (however I am using the new password successfully everywhere else and once again, I’m 100% sure I’m inputting it correctly) Other fixes I’ve tried include: deleting the account and starting from scratch (many times) and I’ve turned my phone on and off many times as well hoping that would fix things… yet, none of this is working. Any help at this point would be greatly appreciated!
