Welcome to Vodafone Community
Solved! Go to Solution.
Eircom have advised that their addresses may not function on handset clients. Having said that, I believe it is possible to set up.
It may be worth your while contacting eircom to verify their servers Joelad
I have checked the eircom website and the settings are as below:
Incoming server - webmail.eircom.net
Outgoing server - mail1.eircom.net
However they state that if you are not using an eircom.net connection you must use your internet providers own smpt server.
When I add in mail.Vodafone.ie I get the message:
"Cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. Your server is not responding."
I have tried with and without security, on ports 465 and 25. Still not working.
Anything else that I can try?
I've leave this thread open if any body has any suggestions
TLS (if available)
Untick Sign in
Give the Account a name and set your Name seen on outgoing emails. Set on demand/push or manual update options.
You can mess with the settings in K-9 (there's loads...) to configure until your hearts content.
I downloaded the K-9 App and followed your instructions but I am still getting the following message:
Cannot connect to server. Unable to connect to SMTP server.
I am sure that it is just me doing something silly, but it can be frustrating! Any suggestions?
I have k-9 downloaded and can receive e-mails from my eircom e-mail but it won't send any for me. I've tried mail1.eircom.net and mail.vodafone.ie with security none and security ssl/tts with wifi on and off and mixed permutations to no effect. Has anyone managed to send e-mail using the vodafone network and an eircom e-mail address
you could just access the eircom account thru the eircom page in your browser???
not what you want to do but set up a gmail accound and when on a pc set eircom account to forward the mails to gmail, or you could try and get gmail to retreve mails from eircom.
hi, I have eircom mail and it works fine. Try this:
change the outgoing server to mail2.eircom.net and where it says "login required", make sure its not ticked. once I did that, it worked again.
Sometimes that outgoing server name has to be changed depending if your on wifi or mobile network. its just how the eircom thing works. But just make sure the login required is not ticked.
hope this helps
