I have been trying to figure out how to set up my iphone to access email from my private godaddy hosted domain as well as my timne warner/roadrunner email accounts. It works when I am physicly synching to itues, but cannot receive emails while on the road, nor can I send them. I am probably just doing something wrong and apple or at&t act like they never imagined domeone would attempt sucha thing. Please do not suggest alternate free emails like hotmail. Thanks for the help ahead of time.

Are you using pop.secureserver.net as the POP3 server and smtpout.secureserver.net as the SMTP server?

 Um....no. Should I be? Can you explain? I was attempting to use server settings in the same way that I would when setting up the accounts in outlook express.

It's a little different on the go with an iPhone. You should be able to access it using the following settings

POP3
Server: pop.secureserver.net
username: your full email address
password: that email account password

SMTP
server: smtpout.secureserver.net
username: your full email address
password: that email account password

Let me know if this helps

Still not working...
Is this a hosted Exchange Email or just a standard POP3? Also if it's the hosted exchange, did you purchase the exchange + mobile plan?

If it's the POP3, did you turn off the SSL?

Neither are hosted exchange. I beleive SSL is off by default. Will double check.

Thanx. Been trying to get this figured out for over a year. I feel like an idiot now. :-) All it takes is one little thing to be incorrect though and it's enough to send you chasing after obscure solutions when it is really easy. Guess i need to go back to K.I.S.S. sometimes. Thanks again.
