Hello,
I have a question or two to ask before we can begin.

Which program do you use to access your email (Outlook, Mac Mail, Entourage, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc)?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Problem is on my iPad. Using my Windows PC with Outlook I have no problems.

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the clarification, Tony.
On the iPad, from the home screen, tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, & Calendars, choose your account and tell me which values you have for the following items:
Incoming Server:
Incoming Port:
SSL enabled or disabled
Outgoing Server:
Outgoing Port
SSL enabled or disabled
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Incoming Server: mail.btinternet.com

incoming Port 993

SSLenabled

Outgoing Server SMTP mail.btinternet.com

Port/SSl not displayed in Advanced

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the update.
Verify what your username is. It must be your full email address and not just what comes before the @ sign.
Please, re-enter your email address and password.
Are you able to sync now?
