Can’t Send or Receive E-Mails on Your iPhone or iPad? Try This.

If you can’t send or receive emails in the Mail app on your iOS device, learn what to do.

Before you begin

iOS backups made in iCloud and iTunes back up your mail settings, but not your emails. If you delete or change your email account settings, previously downloaded emails might be removed from your iOS device.

When you’re ready, try the steps below. After each step, see if you still need help.

Make sure that your device can connect to the Internet

To see if your device has a cellular-data or Wi-Fi Internet connection, go to Safari and open a webpage, like www.apple.com.

Check the Outbox for unsent emails

If you see a message that says your email wasn’t sent, then that email goes to your Outbox. Check your Outbox and try to send the email again:

  1. In Mail, tap Mailboxes in the upper-left corner.
  2. Tap Outbox. If you don’t see an Outbox, then your email was sent.
    mailboxes
  3. Tap an email in the Outbox. Make sure that the recipient’s email address is correct.
  4. Tap Send.

Check your email address and password

If Mail asks you to enter a password for your email account, make sure that your password is correct. To check your email address and password, sign in to your email provider’s website.

If you still get a username or password error, contact your email provider or system administrator.

Check your settings

When you set up your email account on your device, iOS automatically uses the correct account settings for many email providers.

To make sure that your account settings are correct, compare the settings in the Mail app to the settings for your email account:

  1. Go to Settings > Passwords & Accounts and tap your email account.
  2. Tap your email address next to Account to see the account information, such as the incoming and outgoing mail servers.
  3. Check the recommended settings for your email account in the Mail Settings Lookup tool and make sure that they’re the same as what you see on your screen. If you don’t see the settings for your email account, contact your email provider or system administrator.

If you have a POP3 email account, then you can only check email on one device at a time. Close other email programs and sign out of webmail sites that you have open. To check if your email is a POP3 account, go to Settings > Passwords & Accounts, tap your account, tap Account, then look for the label POP Account Information. You can also check the recommended email settings for your POP3 email account in the Mail Settings Lookup tool.

If your email provider requires your account to use port 25, then you can only send email when you’re connected to your email provider’s network. Check with your email provider for settings and availability.

If you still need help

Contact your email provider. You can also remove your email account, then set it up again.

Contact your email provider or system administrator

  1. Contact your email provider or check their status webpage to see if there’s a service outage.
  2. Ask your email provider or system administrator if you turned on any security features or restrictions, like two-step verification, for your email account. You might need a special password or may need to request authorisation from your email provider to send and receive email on your device.
  3. Check your email account settings with your email provider or system administrator to make sure that they’re correct.

Remove your email account and set it up again

  1. On your computer, sign in to your email provider’s website. Make sure that all of your email is there or make sure that your email is saved somewhere other than your iOS device.
  2. On your iOS device, go to Settings > Passwords & Accounts.
  3. Tap the email account that you want to remove.
  4. Tap Delete Account.
  5. Add your account again.

The Top 5 Ways a Website Can Benefit Your Business

Did you know that there are still a surprisingly large number of companies who do not have any type of online presence? Even some of those that do are yet to reap the benefits of having a ‘good’ website as opposed to simply having a website.

The creation of a top notch website can benefit your business in a variety of ways and to help you identify some of the more important benefits for any business, we have identified 5 of the more important ones below:

Benefit No. 1 – Establishing a Creditable Image

The creating of a high quality website will enable you to start taking steps towards establishing an online reputation and building levels of credibility through it.

For example, by providing a great user experience for visitors, you are likely to create an positive reputation amongst your customers.

Understanding the Importance of SEO

Benefit No. 2 – Excellent Method of Advertising

A website effectively acts as an online ‘shop window’ for your products and services, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

An attractive and effective website with good quality content (along with a bit of SEO magic) can result in new customers continuing to find your business, without you actually having to do anything!

Benefit No. 3 – Offer Easy Access For Customers

We all lead busy lives and there is a very strong possibility that many potential or existing customers may need to find out information but do not have the time to phone you to do so.

Without an effective website offering a comprehensive level of information, frustrated customers may feel as though they are being forced to go elsewhere.

Benefit No. 4 – Opening Channels of Communication

A great website offers the perfect way to interact with your customers. On the most basic of levels, you can implement easy to use forms and it a more advanced level, you could incorporate a blog or forum on your website offering a great way to communicate with customers.

Benefit No. 5 – Increasing the Reach of your Business

The creation of an effective website offers the opportunity to expand into new areas simply by promoting a new product or service, or targeting a geographic area which is covered by your business.

These are just a small number of the benefits offered by the creation of a website for your business, so if you still deciding whether a website is right for you, the time to make that decision is now!
