Hello, everyone.

I have had my iPhone 4 for almost one year now and have had absolutely no problems whatsoever until now. Tonight all of the sudden when I was trying to send an email off of my iPhone a message popped up that said,

"Cannot Send Mail
The user name or password for 'SMTP:XXX@AOL.com@smtp.aol.com: is incorrect."


I have looked online on Mac Forums and what not and I really cannot find a resolution to my problem. Do any of you know what I could do? This is really irritating because I have never had any problems and use my email many times on a daily basis.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Any ideas or solutions?

It's pretty clear that you either changed your username or password. If not, your SMTP settings are incorrect.

Delete the account and re-add it.

I had this happen to a gmail account. I couldn't figure it out, but before I did figure it out, the problem went away. I wish I knew what happened. I did not change anything.

Some mail clients will assume an invalid user / password combination if errors occur at a certain stage in the connection routine. Usually you can just ignore it if it only happens occasionally (or once).
