Yet again iOS update and mail problems. Time for android I fear.
Wow, such helpful tips: switch your device off and on, delete the problem and then reinstall it, and if that doesn’t work, contact your service provider. A suggestion you could pretty much provide for every single software problem on the planet! How about giving us a tip that actually demonstrates some specialised knowledge and insight into the cause of the problem?
Well said. The advice given here is not very helpful.
Ditto. Not much help to update software to fix bugs and create new problems without healthy fix advice. I am still seething from the last update, which took away my ability to save photo attachments to my Apple photo files. Now, all of a sudden, I can’t “send” emails and, worst, cannot save drafts for later send after a possible fix, it’s like fixing your mouth and your nose falls off. Come guys, you can do better than that.
Same problem. 10.3.3 iOS iPhone says my mail IMAP account is unavailable even though my iPad with older iOS has no ploblem using the same account. When it used to say “server cannot be verified” we had the option to continue. Now the options are just to cancel or get details. Does this mean the Mail is no longer useful for email account?
I have tried every one of these suggestions and I cannot get my roadrunner (TWC) email although I can send email. I have contacted TWC and was told that they had a memo indicating that some apps may not work with the new IOS 11. Oh great! Now I am off to the Apple store!
tried all the tips and still yahoo email will not come in on ipad. Rogers/Yahoo says there is nothing wrong on there end. What next about to sell the ipad and get rid of the problems…..
unhappy apple supporter…..
updated to ios 11 and cannot get my yahoo email, followed all tips as stated previously.
