Yes, I've had it for years...


 

Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
Try manually setting up your email address on the iPad with the following settings:


  • Username: Full email address
  • Password: Password (case sensitive)
  • Incoming Server: pop3.live.com, port 995, SSL enabled
  • Outgoing Server: smtp.live.com, port 25, SSL enabled, requires authentication, use same settings as my incoming mail server.

I have to go back to Best Buy tomorrow and I will ask them to try this, if we still have problems can I contact you again on the same call?

Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
Absolutely! - I hope that Bestbuy isn't charging you each time you go back to them.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I hope they aren't either after I just gave them 500. Thank You I appreciate it.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
