Hi, it will not download, Safari will not enable it.

Are you using a windows or mac computer ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'm using an IPAD

Is this email issue on a windows 7 computer ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Sorry, as first stated it's on an IPad. My mistake giving you Windows info from my laptop which isn't in use.

Ipad is not mentioned in the question.What is mentioned is a samsung phone which you successfully configured your email.

I dont think remote access works on Ipad but we can give it a try.Please go to app store in ipad and then search for Teamviewer.Its a free remote support tool download and install it then open it and let me know the user id and password ***** shows.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I do apologise, my issue is with my IPad although I have the same issue on my laptop which I have now switched on.

No problem i am not that well versed in ipad but with remote access i can check it so try to download and install team viewer and let me know the user id and password.

For windows you can use the above given remote support link but first lets check Ipad.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have downloaded it and it's asking for your password.

OK that is for screen sharing.Doesn't it shows your user id and password ***** the left of the team viewer screen.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'm so sorry to be so slow.
It is only coming up with user ID. 316 191 989.......no password.

It shows that team-viewer is not running on your ipad.Is it open or did you close it?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It's open.

There is a connection error sorry to say i cannot connect to the ipad.Could you please let me know the current email settings on ipad like incoming and outgoing address also port numbers.

Can you check the settings on the laptop too.

Did you change the settings on your laptop to see if the emails are working,if you have difficulty doing so let me know and i can remote access to your laptop and check it directly.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
on servers it has incoming as POP 3
Incoming mail (POP3) I have entered Imap.virginmedia.com and the same for outgoing mail (SMPT)
Server port numbers Outgoing mail SMPT 465......Incoming mail (POP3) 99
Still coming up with error message. Windows Live Mail Error ID 0x800CCC0F
