Yesterday all my e-mail accounts connected to my iPhone5 were working fine. Today I am receiving the "Cannot Get Mail, the connection to the server failed". I tried re-setting my wifi connection but that didn't help. Any suggestions? (I also cannot retrieve e-mail from my iTouch which also was working fine yesterday)
I have this problem also. Worked fine for a couple of weeks and suddenly yesterday would not get Hotmail. "Cannot connect to server" is all I get. I tried deleting the account, then turning the phone off for a minute, then adding the account. It went through the "verification" process fine, but then said it couldn't connect to server. Very frustrating.
MSN has been having Hotmail problems for a couple days. I can access it through the MSN mobile browser and signing into Hotmail, but the MAIL button gives me the server error as well. I've tried deleting and reestablishing. I am hoping the problem will remedy when MSN gets their issues resolved. See the status update here. https://status.live.com/detail/hotmail
