Hey John,
Lets go to Settings>>accounts>>sellect the email account and check that you have these settings
Outgoing Mail Server:
Port: 465 (this may not be automatically populated on selection of SSL, so you'll need to check this)
SSL Encryption: Enabled (but not STARTTLS)
Authentication: PLAIN
Username: your email address including the @ btinternet or @ part
Password: your btinternet password
If you do not please use these and let me know if you are able to send emails.

I can send but not receive. It says authentification failed

Are you able to get on a computer and go to this site and log in to your email
It sounds like you need to reset your password.
Try this link on your computer and let me know if you are able to access your email on the site with the same credentials.
