Using email with Outlook and iPhone?

Is it possible? I tired setting it up in outlook, and if I do as a regular email account it does not work.

For iPhone, I need the incoming and outgoing mail server. Or do I set it up as something else?


It’s possible to use both Outlook and iPhone’s with your email. As for your incoming and outgoing mail server – you could use your server’s IP address, hostname, or any domain that runs on it.

If that doesn’t work – what error is it you’re getting when you try?

And what shows up in your mail logs, in /var/log/maillog or /var/log/mail.log?


My iphone worked! But here is the error with outlook

Log onto incoming mail server (IMAP) - Completed
Send test e-mail messege - Failed

Send test e-mail messege: The server responded: 450 4.2.0 <EMAIL_HERE>


I went into Advanced, changed the encryption type to “auto” and it worked!

Tyvm, I got it working on both my iphone and outlook :slight_smile:

Super, I’m glad that worked!

My iPhone stopped getting mail? I get this popup now

Cannot Get Mail
The mail server “ip_address_here” is not responding. Verify that you have enterd the correct account info in Mail Settings.

It was working perfectly, now it does not?

Is Outlook still working? It’s just your iPhone that’s not able to connect?

You could always try restarting Dovecot to see if that helps:

/etc/init.d/dovecot restart
