I understand you can receive emails but you cannot send any. The error you are getting is due to your login. It sounds like a setting issue which should be easy to fix. What type of Ipad do you have?

Apple

Great! I see now. On your Ipad, what program do you use to access your email?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I’m not sure what you mean by the program I use to access my email.I am a 79 yr old not very techy
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

I'm sorry! Let me ask in a different way. On your ipad, how do you access your email? Do you open an icon called email?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

I asked that just to make sure you weren't using another icon that could change my direction of troubleshooting. Okay, good. We're in a good spot now. I will have to have you verify some settings now so let's do this!

Can I have you open "Settings." If you don't have Settings, swipe right and type in the search box "Settings" and open the result.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I am open to settings
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

In the Settings app, navigate to Mail, Contacts, Calendars

Tap the account name to view the account.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

On the main screen for your email account, tap on the email address near the top of the screen next to Account to access the account’s settings.

Verizon is what is on top of my emails
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

Is that the account you send from your ipad?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

I wasn't sure if you also have a Verizon email address too.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Now I am getting confused Idon’t have a separate Verizon e-mail address
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

Okay. I was confused too when you said the email area you read said Verizon. No worries.

Were you able to get to a screen that looks like this?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok I see attached now what?
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

Are you seeing that on your ipad now?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
What does the $42 payment cover if I keep seeing a $39 fee to have you troubleshoot
I have it on my iPad and iphone
Tech Support Specialist: Cabletech, Computer Support Specialist replied 5 months ago

The secure connect is not what we need. It's offered by the site but because it is an ipad, it's hard to connect to your ipad to share the screens. If you had this issue on a laptop for example, it would allow me to remote into your computer and take over so I can move around a bit quicker.

Just to recap, I had you go to settings. Then navigate to Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Tap the account name to view the account. Then tap on the email address which should be your MSN email address.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

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
