    Hi

    Is anybody else having outgoing server issues on mobile me from say monday (GMT). I can receive but not send as the phone says the server has timed out and cant connect. I've tried deleting the account on my phone but now it says it cant verify the new account due to not connecting to the server. Great!

    Anyone else having issues? I thought id done well to escape these early MM problems but its looks as if i couldn't run from it indefinitely!

    cheers

    Just tried an mine seems fine, I am using the old server name (smtp.mac.com)

    If you are using smtp.me.com it might be worth trying the mac one just to see if that works

    It seems to be an issue with MM. I sometimes will get the same error and the only solution that has worked for me is to delete the account from my iPhone and re-enter my information.

    MM contact issues...new problem!

    Theres also another problem ive noticed. Contact syncing.

    Last weekend my 1st gen iphone (not hacked or jailbroken) had a problem where i had been using shure headphones and mic adapter (as i have since i bought it) and i'd made a few calls via this while listening to the ipod. When i took off the headphones whenever i made or received a call it was muted. The other caller couldn't hear me and i couldn't here them.

    Anyway, after a few turn on/turn offs i then restored the phone from an earlier backup. Still no joy. I finally found out that it was an issue with the headphone jack, so all is ok on this front the audio.

    The main problem: I noticed a few days ago that my contacts have reverted to an old version as all my recent phone calls and texts were now just listed as the number, not the contact name. It looks as if the phone is now not recognising the link between text/call details and the contacts i have.

    Ive tried resyncing via itunes, i've gone into prefs and made sure my contacts are the right ones, which they are and it still wont update my contacts. Ive checked my address book on my macbook and thats the up to date version and also my contacts on MobileMe are the right ones. It just wont update?!!

    I also just imported the SIM contacts but thats just taken an even older version (no email details etc). This was a bad decision! Is there a way of deleting all my contacts and starting again?
