Emails Not Downloading
Posted on 2012-04-04
I use Microsoft Outlook 2007 as my email client with my email hosted via my web host on Gmail. I had been using a Blackberry and was able to receive/send emails from this mobile device. I had the mail server set to keep all emails. This has been in place for over 4 years and working fine. I got the same emails on both my workstation and my BB.
Last month I switched from a BB to an iPhone 4S. Still have my web host/email server and through Gmail using Outlook 2007.
However, now some of my emails go only to my iPhone and not Outlook and some go to Outlook and not to the iPhone.
I have checked and re-checked my iPhone mail settings and they are set to the pop and smtp servers correctly.
On my workstation using Outlook, I have the pop and smtp servers using POP3 Server Port XXX and Outgoing Server Port YYY - customized not the default ports.
In the iPhone Advanced Settings it only allows one Port Setting which I have set to XXX. It does not tell me if it is Incoming or Outgoing - still only allowing one port input. Originally this setting was set to a default port setting which I changed to XXX.
By the way this email problem was occurring when the default port setting was used as well as the XXX port setting now.
Why is this occurring and how can I correct it?
Why does the iPhone only have 1 port setting? Outlook allows setting an incoming and outgoing port.
