Because of the iPhone’s sleek and straightforward interface, sending and receiving emails is a breeze. You can use any email service, whether it’s a free one like Gmail, Yahoo, or Windows Live, or a commercial one like SBCglobal email login, Roadrunner email, or Bellsouth email.
If you use SBCGlobal email and wish to access it on your iPhone, you may certainly do so. If you’ve been using the email on your iPhone but haven’t been able to get it to work properly, you’ll need to figure out what problem(s) are preventing you from accessing your SBCGlobal email on your iPhone.
Let’s look at some of the most typical issues people have when using their iPhone to access SBCGlobal email.
Problem 1: SSL connection is not possible.
If you’re having this issue, you’ve probably seen an error message on your screen. When you try to set up your email on the iPhone using SSL settings, you’ll get this problem. Here’s how you can resolve the issue:
- Because this issue arises during the email setup process, you must select ‘No’ whenever the option to use ‘SSL’ is presented. After that, press the ‘Save’ button.
- Now you must choose the email account you wish to set up and then select ‘SMTP’ from the drop-down menu.
- Select ‘Primary Server’ from the drop-down menu.
- Switch the server port by turning on ‘SSL settings’ and then tapping ‘Server Port’.
- To turn on the server, touch ‘OFF’ after selecting ‘AT&T SMTP Server.’ After that, simply tap ‘Done.’
Select ‘Account Info’, then ‘Advanced Option.’
- Select ‘Incoming use of the SSL settings’ from the drop-down menu.
- After that, tap ‘Account Info’ and then ‘Done.’
Problem 2: Changing the Apple iPhone’s port settings
When selecting a port number for the iPhone during setup, you must take into account a variety of factors, including the phone’s firewall and service providers. These factors will determine whether or not the port settings you chose allow you to send and receive emails.
The following steps will show you how to alter the port settings on your Apple iPhone:
- Go to your iPhone’s ‘Settings’.
- Now go to ‘Contacts, Calendars, and Emails.’
- By tapping on the same, you may change your email account.
- Select the ‘SMTP’ option, then the ‘SMTP Server’ that you want to alter.
- Tap the relevant server port field, then type a value in the SMTP port field, such as ’25’, ’80’, or ‘3535’. If the SSL settings are already enabled, you can also enter ‘465’.
If the aforementioned procedures help you resolve the issues you’re having with SBCGlobal email on your iPhone, that’s fantastic; but, if you’re still having issues, you’ll need to contact SBCGlobal customer care. They will be able to assist you in the most complete manner possible.
