It has been a few days now that I cant access my mail box on my Iphone. Everytime I log in, it says that either my password, username, or settings could not be identified....

Do you know how I can set it up again ?


Many thanks,

It may be related to your interent settings so try this:

Receive Settings via SMS

Internet Settings
Text "settings" to 2020

Input Settings Manually

Internet Settings
Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS
APN - Access Point Name:
Proxy Server Address:
Proxy Port:8080
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

Also see if it will work with anither account. If it does then it must just be a problem with your email!

Hope this helps!

I'm not sure but I had that problem when connected to WIFI. It was OK on 3G. It turned out my phone was connecting to a BTFON hotspot. Once I hit forget this network and connected to my home network again I didn't have that problem.

One thing I discovered when setting up my mailboxes on my iPhone was that the password should be entered with NO capitals even if you have capitals in your password
