I have an Apple ipad and I can't send out mail. I get my incoming mail. I also can get Facebook anymore. I used to be able to do both of these.

Can you tell me what version of iOS you are currently running, please?

From the Home screen;

tap Settings

tap General

tap About

On the About screen, look for the "Version" information. Please let me know what it says.

Thanks,

John

I don't want to pay $26.00 more. I just paid $30.00. What does that do?
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

Thanks,

and who is the email provider for the account you are having issues with currently?

(you're likely receiving an automated offer for an additional service, you can ignore that)

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It is Mediacom. I called them and they said everything is working on their end. They said to get in touch with Apple.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

Ok,

it's probably best to delete and re-add the account back to the iPad.

TO REMOVE ACCOUNT

From the home screen, tap Settings.

tap “Mail Contacts, Calendars”

From the Accounts section, tap the email account you wish to remove.

tap “Delete Account”.

tap “Delete” to confirm.

TO ADD ACCOUNT

In Settings > “Mail Contacts, Calendars”…

In the Accounts section, Tap “Add Account”.

tap your email provider or use "Other" if not listed

Follow the onscreen steps and provide the required information to configure your account. In the boxes provided you should enter your name, complete email address, password, and a description of the account.

Once you’ve entered your information, in the top right, tap Next.

After your account has been verified, in the top right, tap Save. (Note: Make sure that the Mail option is turned ON.)

When the account setup has been completed, test that it works properly.

Thanks and good luck!

It says it is unable to verify account information.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

This is usually because of a password ***** username error.

Are you able to sign into webmail at the following link without issue?

https://webmail.mediacombb.net/

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

Ok, what error do you get there when trying to sign in?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It says user name or password ***** *****
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I know they are correct because I have them written down.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

Ok, you can call Mediacom back and verify that info to see why it isn't being accepted by them or you can reset the password *****:

Then go back and finish adding the account to your iPad again.

I called Mediacom back and now I have no emails at all. I tried setting up a new account like they said and that didn't work. I still can't get Facebook back either.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

Ok, I'm not clear, do you now have a working email account with Mediacom? Your email sign in problem was with them specifically. Are you saying they could not help you regain access to your original account?

John

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
They told me to call Apple back and tell you the port for incoming mail is 110 and the outgoing is 25. He said if I have SSL - No.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

I'm afraid you still need to clarify.

When I asked you to sign into the webmail portal for Mediacom that was directly on their site and nothing to do with your Apple iPad. You indicated you could not sign in. Has that been remedied?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No, I am getting off of here and calling Discover to have them remove the $30.00 on my credit card. I am worse off now then when I started.
Expert:  John T. F. replied 8 months ago.

I'm sorry you are frustrated but I am only try to help. Your email problem was originally with Mediacom. If they can not provide you with a working account then that is not the fault of Apple or myself. Your mail was not working previously because of your issue with Mediacom. The iPad problem was only a symptom.

What is the reason they can not restore access to your email account?
