  • I have an I-phone 6S that has lost the ability to receive e-mails from my COX e-mail provider. Following the instructions above, I'm requested to go to "settings' and open my "mail, contacts & calendars". These are three separate categories and none of them have the next directional question of "Add Account". My computer is receiving my e-mails but they are not being forwarded to my phone. I need help determining if I have all of my correct setting open, or to determine if my computer has for some reason "dropped" my I-phone account.

  • on iPhone 6 Sunday: "The mail server "mail.optonline.net" is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account in Mail Settings." I have no e-mails since Sunday, but do have Messages OK. My Optimum PC emails are coming through OK. I did the process and above was advised the email password was not correct. I used the new password I have for the Optimum email address. Should that be the Verizon email, or is there another for the iPhone? Why would I lose my email suddenly? I have used it for years.
