    When trying to send an E-mail from my I-pod touch, I get the following error message...

    "The user name or password for is incorrect."

    Sooooo, I looked up my password in the accounts section and made sure that my name and password is correct. STILL cannot send. I CAN receive, however.

    Any suggestions?

    Try changing the SMTP username to, where xxxx is your username.

    EDIT: I found this:

    Thanks for that, but in lieu of me posting my username, I put the xxxxx's in instead of my username.
    The error message DOES state my username.
    I had a good laugh at myself!



    I answered your missive before you added the other information.

    I cannot see where it asks me for the account type.

    Please bear with me...I'm not very good at this stuff. Thanks for trying to help. I just don't understand it, it's worked great for a couple of years. I had to change my password on my desktop computer a few weeks ago, and am trying to match it up with this pod. Is there another place that I must change my password other than the "mail,contacts,calendar" heading?
