Iphone email updating
Check with your email provider for settings and availability.
One of the major benefits of the i Phone is that it can keep you in touch with almost anyone from almost anywhere.
Close other email programs and sign out of webmail sites that you have open.
To check if your email is a POP3 account, go to Settings If your email provider requires your account to use port 25, then you can only send email when you’re connected to your email provider’s network.
While you're in Settings, check your Wi-Fi and make sure you're connected to a network you know (or not connected at all and using mobile data).
If you're connected to a random network, such as the ubiquitous "public network" (caused by a bug in nearby Windows laptops), that never works.
For example, 'apps gone free' would say 'your new apps gone free are ready' at about 6 PM every evening and my BBC news app would put messages on the screen and make the BBC news sound when a new piece of news came out, that no longer happens on my i Phone 6, although I believe I still have the same settings as on the i Phone 5s. I believe that is where you will find the "fetch new mail" option, although it may say something else.
When you set up your email account on your device, i OS automatically uses the correct account settings for many email providers.
To make sure that your account settings are correct, compare the settings in the Mail app to the settings for your email account: If you have a POP3 email account, then you can only check email on one device at a time.
Or fetch them all, which avoids the problem as well.
i OS backups made in i Cloud and i Tunes back up your mail settings, but not your emails. If Mail asks you to enter a password for your email account, make sure that your password is correct.
