Advanced Outgoing SMTP and Incoming Settings

you may need to adjust your outgoing email settings.

2. Choose Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

3. From the Accounts menu, tap your email address.

10. Return to the main screen.

You're all set! All of your advanced settings should now be accurate.

Use ISP Outgoing Mail Server

If all of your settings are correct and you are still unable to send email with your iPhone, your Internet Service Provider may be blocking outgoing traffic on the standard SMTP (mail-sending) port. ISPs do this in an effort to cut down on spam.

In this case, you should contact your ISP for instructions on how to use their outgoing mail server instead.

The email will still be coming from your own email address. It will just route through their servers instead of Energy Grid’s servers.

Troubleshooting

Cannot send email

This may be due to your Internet Service Provider blocking the standard outgoing email port. See the Use ISP Outgoing Mail Server section above for help.
