Mail.com account sync to iphone 3gs [Solved]

Glamanda - Latest answer on Feb 11, 2015 05:20PM
Hello,
Hoping someone can help.. I have a free email account with mail.com and unable to add it as an mail account to my iphone. Is it right that mail.com will not allow syncing with free accounts? Or can someone please give me the mail incoming server and outgoing server addresses?
Thanks,
Amanda

Mail.com is powered by AOL, so when adding the account. You go to setting, add account, then AOL. Type in information as normal, then save. It will add the account in minutes. I have two on mines>

I was having trouble getting my mail.com acct sync'd to my iphone, everytime I emailed mail.com they just sent me their "canned" response and FAQ. NO help!
The instructions to create your mail.com acct going through AOL worked great, don't need to know incoming or outgoing addresses.

thanks so much!

I have a premium account with mail.com. The incoming email is fine. I cannot get the Iphone to "send" on my mail.com account. I understand that mail.com is now owned by AOL...but AOL settings seem to not work. All worked well before AOL bought them out. How do I SEND email on a mail.com account on my Iphone? Thanks! Thanks ..what are the exact settings?

These settings work as of 5/21/10.

------------

Mail.com / AOL tend to use IMAP for security purposes. Here are the settings I was able to use.


IMAP ACCOUNT

Incoming
Server: pop.mail.com
Username: Full Email address

Outgoing
Server: smtp.mail.com
Port: 587
Username: Full email address

A quick thanks to all contributors - I had problems for weeks on replicating my mail.com account on the iPhone. I have now followed advice and set up my account on the iPhone through the pre-set AOL mail account. It all works fine (for now).

Thanks again!

The info here was the best. I wasted so much time looking at other videos and instructions. After reading this I set up my account in like 30 seconds. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

I had the same problem starting Jan 1:

I changed SMTP from mail.com to smtp.aol.com

POP3 unchanged mail.com (aol.com does not work)

I also tried setting up my mail.com account via the aol preset.
It works prefectly EXCEPT I can't send mail because my outgoing id is set to xxx@mail.com@AOL.COM! Supersilly!! And it seems I can't change it...

I've tried doing it manually, but I can't get the correct pop and smtp settings.... help, anyone?

Don't use the AOL setup. Set it manually and it works. See former comments on this subject.

what you need to do to RECEIVE MAIL:
When editing your outing going server enter your username and password(your username is your email address), this will allow you to send. It works!
