I have an old Freeserve POP3 account email@example.com which I cannot get working on my iPhone. I have entered all of the correct settings as from my Outlook express account details and it will not work at all!
All I get is unable to connect to pop.freeserve.co.uk I have tried most of the freeserve incoming addresses and non of them work! I have even tried 2 other iPhones and non of them work either! But if I put the same account details in on a PC or Mac it all works fine!!!
I've had problems accessing Freeserve with my iphone. It works fine on Wi-Fi but it just won't connect with 3G although I managed with my original handset (which I had to exchange because it was faulty).
You're not alone with this, I had nothing but problems with my freeserve account, sometimes it would not download mail for 2 days. After 6 months I got so fed up of trying alernative ways and it still not working that I created a new e-mail address with another provider.
