Hello and thank you for asking your question, with JustAnswer.com/Mac.I am Sr. Mac Tech Support Specialist, Terry, glad to assist you. **Please note: An "Answer" by me, or an"Accept" from you, does not mean the session has ended. So please remain patient with me and I will workdiligently, to resolve your technical question to your satisfaction.-Thanks!*--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:First, make sure in your iPad under Settings>Mail Contacts, Calendars that your Tiscali email settings are set with the POP3 (incoming) and SMTP (outgoing) mail server addresses are set with these correct addresses:
how will i find out what my ISP outgoing mail server address is?
Thanks for your reply.Actually I should be able to help you with that.Who do you use for your Internet service for your home (or office)?
Thanks for your update.Here is the information for BT Broadband for its outgoing mail server (SMTP) address
That did not work, but i think i might know why!!
I have two Internet lines in my house, BT and Tiscali.
I have no longet got the Tiscali connected and only use the BT one but still have my Tiscali line and email address.
Will the reason it will noit work be because i an trying to send emails through BT? and if that is the case how come i can receive them OK.
Thanks for the update Tim and sorry for the delay, I was trying to figure that out myself.I can tell you that if you are just using BT Internet then the POP and the SMTP mail server addresses for that ISP is the same: mail.btinternet.comHave you tried setting up your email with this address, for both incoming and outgoing email to see if it would work?Also what port are you using?
If i change the Incoming Mail Server Host Name to mail.btinternet.com then it does not work. It comes up with the message "the user name or password XXXXX mail.btinternet is incorrect.
it is set up as pop.tiscali.co.uk and this works for incoming mails. But smtp.tiscali.co.uk does not verify for ourgoing
i am using port 587 for the Tiscali one.

Hi,It's still not working.What information do you require.Tim
Greetings Tim and thanks for your reply back.Actually I am checking for a status update for starters. Have you contacted your ISP (Internet Service Provider) BT, to find out if there are any known issues with their SMTP mail server address in its working with Apple iPads?I think this would be a good start Tim just to confirm that the SMTP server is able to work with iPads (I don't see why it would not work) and also to bring to BT Broadband's attention the issue you are having, and to have them check your settings and port address from their side to see if you may need to change some detail to fit their server specs on your iPad, so you can start sending your tiscali emails with the BT Broadband SMTP.Keep me posted.-Terry
