I can't get any mail to my iphone. I deleted the aol account and tried to set it up again. I got "cannot get mail The user name or password for "imap.aol.com" is incorrect. I checked on my desktop and I could enter aol with my email and password.
I have been unable to set up the aol account on the iphone. I then deleted my gmail account and then tried to set that account up again. I got the same message "cannot get mail The user name or password for "imap.gmail.com" is incorrect. I now have no way to get emails on my phone as I no longer have any type of account. What to do next?
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer.com.Please reset your iphone. Go to Settings->General->reset->reset all settings(1st option). This will reset all settings on the iphone. Your data will be SAFE. After this, please remove all your email accounts and reconfigure them.
I did. I have set it up in the past and it worked. Only recently has it not worked. I get the message during the verifying stage.
I did as you suggested and then changed my password (I did it only a couple of weeks ago) and all of a sudden all is working.
Thanks. Have a great day!
