I was trying it by using IMAP, but I have gone through the entire directions to setting this up and it doesn’t work. If I already have another e-mail set up on my iPhone (a AOL acct) and it is set as my default email on the phone, would that effect me being able to add another e-mail acct on this phone? There is not an SSL Option that I can see…
This is the link to the directions I was using…
I followed these directions… and did everything just like it states, but at the end when it says
"At that point you should see the Save button in the upper right-hand portion of the screen become selectable. Tap on that.
You’ll probably get a pop-up box saying that Secure Connection Failed. The certificate for (your email address) may not be valid. Go ahead and tap on Continue. It should then continue verifying the account information. "
"After a minute or so you may also receive another pop-up box saying that Secure Connection Failed. The certificate for SMTP:(your email address) may not be valid. " -
(I do get this message but it does not give me the option to continue, it only has a button below this message that says “OK”. and I click on that… but it doesn’t take me back to the Mail, Contacts, Calendar page like it says it will on the tutorial which I have posted here.) It just takes me back to the page where I had typed in the info mail.(mydomainname.com)
I may just need to take the phone to the Apple Store and have them try to do this. I have tried for 2 weeks to set up my email acct on this iPhone with no luck and I have 3 friends that all have iPhones and they have not been able to do it either.
Why is this so difficult? My AOL acct was so easy to set up on my iPhone, any other suggestions would be great! Thanks!
“Go ahead and tap on Continue. It should then continue verifying the account information.
You should then be taken back to the Mail, Contacts, Calendar page and see your new account listed under the Accounts”
This doesn’t work!!!
