Question and Answer

  • 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.
