  • At the beginning of May 2019, I stopped getting EarthLink email on my iPhone. I get a message that my IMAP password is incorrect. I can't even find where these parameters are set up anymore on the phone. Settings -> mail doesn't offer the option to add an additional email account anymore.

  • About a week ago, my iPhone stopped retrieving EarthLink mail. I have triple checked all settings and account information and they are all correct. The iPhone simply refuses and says that my information and or password is incorrect. I can assure you all my information is perfectly accurate. I have no idea what to do from this point.
