Cannot Get Mail Since The User Name Or Password Are Incorrect
Sep 5, 2010
I am trying to set up an account on my iPad, but just can't seem to get it to work. I already have other accounts set up and they work fine.
I enter all the correct information for using IMAP, etc. Then it tells me it cannot get mail since the user name or password are incorrect. They ARE correct. I have this account set up on my MacBook with no issues using all the same information.
So, using all the same set up and credentials I set this account up on my iPod Touch with no issues last night and it worked just fine. Today it isn't working the same. It is keeps telling me Secure Connection Failed.
Any ideas out there to help me out.
Information: MacBook 2.0 GHz (Unibody) - iMac Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz - Mac Mini Core 2 Duo Mac OS X (10.5.6)
General :: Cannot Send Mail / User And Password Is Incorrect
Apr 15, 2014
Recently I was advised by Microsoft to change the my password in my email account which is hotmail.co.uk. This I did and subsequently had to change the password on my IPad mail account in order to access mail on the IPad. Whilst I can download mail to my inbox I cannot now send emails. When I try to send I get the message " Cannot send Mail the user name or password for SMTP (email address)@URL... is incorrect. I have tried cancelling the account on my IPad and then setting up again with the new hotmail password but the status is the same. Mail can download but mail cannot be sent.
I am getting the above message for some reason. Things have been going along fine since I set the new iPad up. I had both exchange and the Gmail app getting mail and a few days ago turned off exchange mail since it just duplicated. Fine until this morning when I started getting this message.
I turned exchange email back on and my gmail shows up in that folder but not the Gmail. Any suggestions before I delete and redo the gmail one.
I get the message 'User Name or PW for @gmail.com' is incorrect on the iPad only. Laptop and desktop work perfectly. Same for my other email accounts, including Yahoo.I've logged in and out of gmail.com on both the iPad and laptop. Also, I went to the email pref on the iPad, turned it off, and back on, all to no avail.One thing I've changed is upgrade to Snow Leopard yesterday pm. But again, all of my other email accounts work as usual, and I can have access to gmail.com through the web site.
Unable To Send Email / User Name Or Password Incorrect
Nov 9, 2010
I have had this same issue on the iPhone for a few years and now have it on the iPad. I have setup my personal account and can successfully receive email. However, sending email is problematic as it always incurs the error:
Cannot Send Mail The user name or password for "SMTP:<my email address>@<ISP's SMTP server>" is incorrect.
The user name for my email account is my email address (email@example.com) and the SMTP server is of the normal form mail.isps_domainname.com.
The error message suggests that Apple's mail utility is joining the username with the SMTP address with the @ being the conjunction. If it is doing this, it is wrong as it is screwing up the user name. Is there anyway to stop the Mail utility from doing this?

I can't access my count in gmail. I restart because the told me that my name or password is wrong. I can't set up my gmail count again. So is it necessary configure the smtp? If yes, I cant access this option. The message that I have is: the user name or password for imap.gmail.com is incorrect.
IPad 2 :: Mail Cannot Be Picked Up - Username / Password Incorrect

We just bought a new ipad and it is working great but the mail application is not working. Everytime when I click on mail it gives me the message - the mail cannot be picked up - username or password is incorrect - When I click settings to change any of these settings...the mail menu closes down....
IPad 3 :: Yahoo Mail - Password Is Incorrect Message
Jun 25, 2012
I very often get messages on my iPad that says the yahoo mail password is incorrect - and when I go to Settings sure enough that's correct - but I can reset it and go right back to settings and it is changed again - I have never had a password problem using yahoo mail in a browser.
I contacted Apple - they had me do a reset, but that has not fixed the problem.
Adding Lycos Mail - "Cannot Get Mail-The Username Or Password For Pop.mail.lycos.com Is Incorrect"
Jun 26, 2011
I have two email accounts that I need to add to my Ipad.The first is a Gmail account which I had up and running in no time at all,quite easy to do actually. Unfortunately the same can't be said about my Lycos email account.I've tried several times to add my Lycos email account to my Ipad but with no success.I used the exact same method(Settings-Mail-Add Account)that I did when I added my Gmail account but like I said,no success.
I keep getting the same error message when I try to complete the process: "Cannot Get Mail-The username or password for pop.mail.lycos.com is incorrect."
This does not make any sense because I am entering the correct username and password. So having said all of that I was wondering if any other Lycos mail users out there have had the same problem in the past and how you fixed this problem? Or if anyone else knows how to rectify this issue? My Ipad is the 32g Wifi model.
I just bought a Ipad 3G 64Gb. In my home it can connect to my WPA wireless network fine. At job there is a WEP WiFi network wich I cant connect I'm sure the password is fine but always I get "Incorrect password" error. I tried with my laptop and Iphone 3G (IOS 4.1) with no problem, but with the brand new Ipad there is a issue I tried by looking information about this and it seems is a IOS bug
