Cannot Get Mail - User Name Or Password Is Incorrect?

Sep 10, 2010

I keep receiving same error over and over again no matter what I try.

Cannot Get Mail

The user name or password for "" is incorrect.

Yet the information is correct since I'm able to connect to my e-mail using the safari browser and logging in the old fashioned way.

I have tried the reboot function.

Deleting and trying to recreate the account.

Resetting the WiFi connection and its settings.

Signed in and out of my account on Safari tried everything I can possibly think of.

Now every time I try to recreate the account it gives me this error and really not sure what to do.

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.

Gmail User Name Or Password Incorrect?

Apr 19, 2012

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.

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 ( and the SMTP server is of the normal form

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?

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 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 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.
