I set up my sbcglobal.net email account on my iPhone and iPad, but it only downloads the latest one or two emails but not any of the history. Also after I open an email and close it, and then come back to my emails, the one I looked at is gone. I have my office email set up on both the iPhone and iPad and it gives me all the emails that I have in my in box just like they appear on my computer. How can I get the sbcglobal.net email to do the same thing on the iPhone and iPad?
thanks,
Mack

Welcome to JustAnswer.com

My name isXXXXX am one of the experts who will assist you today!

Before we configure the account. I need to clarify..

When you see the sbc email on the ipad..

And then go directly and login to the root email account itself.. it has deleted the emails that the ipad or iphone pulled up?

No,

If I click and open and email, it is there and I can read it, but if I close out email and come back and open the email account again, then the email is not there. An example is, currently for today I have approximately 30 emails that came in to my account on my computer today, when I access either the iPhone or iPad email accounts it shows the only 4 emails, the three I just recieved from Just Answer and one other one. If I log in again to this account in about 30 minutes to an hour, then it will usually show that I have 1 or 2 new emails, and the other 4 will not be there.

Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Ok.. on each of your iphones and ipads, we need to delete your sbc yahoo email account and then re add it.. its set up incorrectly..

So, delete the email accounts and then.. re add them this way

For your first email account, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Mail.
  2. Choose Y! Mail (top of the list).
  3. Provide your name or your account name in Name.
  4. Provide your Yahoo! Mail address—for example,[email protected]—in Address. Please make sure to include the @ and the address's domain name, such as @yahoo.com, after the ID.
  5. Provide the password XXXXX your Yahoo! Mail address.
  6. Provide a description of the account.
  7. Confirm the settings.
Then.. go into the account settings.

make sure that push is disabled.. and if you see leave a copy, make sure its checked..

then, test the mail again with just one device hooked up and let me know what happens.. thanks

It still is giving me the same problem, the only email there now is the one you just sent me. I deleted the email and then went through the steps again as follows:

1. selected mail.

2. selected Yahoo!

3. Mack Anderson

4. [email protected]

5. provided my password

6. the description self-populated with [email protected]

7. the settings were confirmed

 

I then went to settings and turned the push off and then checked the email account and as I said, there was only the last email that you sent in there.

Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Ok..

It may take a few minutes for it to check, and download the mail.. But it should have done so already..

try this.


  • Tap Settings on your iPhone's Home screen.
  • Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  • Tap Show __ Recent Messages under Mail.
  • Make sure 25 Recent Messages is selected.
Now, it should show the 25 most recent messages..

allow it a minute or two to try and download the mail. and let me know if its working any better.

Customer reply replied 6 years ago

still the same result. I have your last email and one more that came in at the same time and nothing else. I followed the same steps you gave me orginally when I first set up the email account on my iPhone last week. I have even turned the phone off and restarted it and it still does the same thing. The iPad does this also.

 

Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Hmm.. did you see the section for show 25 messages ?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago

Yes, and it is checked and shows up in the window next to the word Show.

In the Outgoing Mail Server in the SMTP window it has Yahoo! SMTP Server. When you click on the arrow the next screen shows for the PrimaryServer Yahoo! SMTP Server and it is On. Under other SMTP Servers it has AT&T SMTP and it is Off.

Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Your yahoo account.. is it through sbc , at&t ..or just regular yahoo?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I set it up when I first got DSL from AT&T, but the instructions were to set it up as sbcglobal instead of at&t so I don't really know. Should I turn on the AT&T server also?
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Lets try that..

turn off yahoo.. turn on at&t

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
It will not let me turn it off or delete the Yahoo! Server as the Primary Server
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Hmm.. ok..

Lets try this.. Lets try a workaround method. ( i never have liked yahoos pop servers or push features)

Do you have gmail?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago

No, I have never set anything up on gmail

 

Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Hmm.. We could try this.. ( it has worked well for me before)

we can create a free gmail account

Then in about two steps, we can have the gmail account collect your yahoo mail.

then, use the gmail accounts ( not the yahoo accounts with the iphone)

All the yahoo mail will collect in gmail, and then be viewable on the iphone ipad..

is this something youd be willing to try?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
yes,let's try it
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Ok, go to gmail.com create a free gmail account.

once your logged in and looking at the inbox..

delete your yahoo account from the ipod, iphone

let me know when your at that point!
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Okay, I've got the account on the iPhone and haved deleted the SBCglobal account
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago

Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
There could be a few that work. try this one

pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
when i put that in it says now that it can not validate my email address and password XXXXX the sbcglobal account.
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Ok. did you make sure to put in the correct and full sbc email address, and password XXXXX the sbc account?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
yes, in the first step of step one, it verified both and then said the pop server was wrong
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
ok, but now its saying the email address and password XXXXX wrong?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
yes, I just deleted the request and started over and it verified the email and password XXXXX now is saying the pop server is wrong
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
are we using the first pop server this time.. or the second?

Try both pop servers.. if neither work, let me know.
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
neither one works
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Apologies for the delay.. Didnt see your reply.

try this

pop.att.yahoo.com

does it also ask you for a port and have a ssl box?

Let me know what those are currently set to as well.. thanks!
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
i put the pop.att.yahoo.com and it still says that gmail could not identify the pop server.

the port number it shows is 110 and when you click on edit right next to the port number, you can change the port number and their is a ssl box that you can check, but it is not checked.
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
Please check the ssl box..

It needs to be checked. and we may need to try all three servers again..

( i assumed the box was checked automatically, apologies for that)
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I just tried them all and nothing worked, still getting the same error message.
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 years ago
I really do not like Sbc and At&t.. Nor yahoo..

Question.. Maybe.. We can do this in reverse.

Use the link below.

http://help.yahoo.com/tutorials/cg/mail/cg_access5.html

And set your yahoo mail to forward to gmail.. ( and also, if gmail is having issues picking up yahoo mail, its no wonder you have been having issues suddenly with your ipad, ipod)

Once your mail is forwarded to gmail.. Then when the ipod checks your gmail, it will actually be checking you yahoo mail.. Make sense?

RPAustin, TX

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
