I was travelling last week in Europe and was at a hotel that had free wifi. I was able to get my mail as normal on either the iphone or the ipad (both running ios 5x). I remember seeing a message about allowing or denying some sort of incoming connections on both devices at one point, and I hit deny. Things seemed to continue ok, but now back home in the UK, if I try to get mail from either device, I am presented with a welcome to Mail window and I am forced to set up a new mail account. But then it won't verify the info and tells me that it can't connect using ssl and if I want to try connecting without it. If I say yes, it never finishes verifying and if I decline, then the process stops completely. Both devices are behaving exactly the same way and both were fine before. I use a regular pop account with ntlworld, and my desktop computer still works fine for getting mail. I have no other mail accounts, such as gmail, etc. I have tried rebooting each device with no effect, and tried to sync the devices by connecting to my computer and itunes. Nothing seems to work. Can anyone advise on what I may have done wrong and how to fix the problem? Thanks for any advice.
