Mail account says invalid password

I just got an iPhone 6 / 64gb, upgrading from an iPhone 5.  I backed up the 5 to my computer, and did a restore to my iPhone 6.  Everything came over and looked ok, but my primary email account isn’t working.  It does not collect mail, and when I attempt to send mail it says ‘cannot send mail  user name or password invalid’.
This is one of several accounts on the phone, the other 4 email accounts are collecting / sending correctly.
The password is unchanged.  I verified the password on my still working over wifi iPhone 5, as well as my iMac.  I’ve restarted the phone, tried deleting / re-adding the account to no avail.  I tried updating the password ( to the same value ) and restarting the phone, no change.
Any ideas?

What email account are you using?
Check your SMTP settings for your email address and make sure the correct primary account is selected.

  • Unable to add a mail account, with Invalid Password error message, yet can log into mail system OK through a browser. Mail technicians can't find the problem.

    When I try to add a newly-created Bigpond account to Thunderbird, I get an error message "User Name or Password Invalid", yet I can log in to this account OK through a browser. When adding the account, Thunderbird says "Configuration found in Mozilla ISP database". I have previously successfully added Bigpond, Yahoo, Outlook and Hotmail accounts to Thunderbird and they are working fine. The Bigpond Technical Support staff have looked into this and cannot see what is wrong but they say they do not support Thunderbird. Any ideas appreciated...

    Thanks. I had tried the auto and manual setups with the same result. IN addition, the Bigpond Support sent me the following which I also tried and got the same result.

    In looking at the Thunderbird error message, it seems to consistently refer to the User Name and Password. I know they are correct, as I can log in from a browser using them. Is there something in the validation rules that might be the problem? Also, you may be aware that Bigpond is migrating their old Webmail system across to the Outlook platform. Registering new e-mail accounts in Bigpond get created on the Outlook platform, whereas older accounts are still on the Bigpond Webmail system. Is this causing a problem somewhere in validation?

  • Having purchased onetoone, i cannot book it,keeps saying invalid password

    I have recently purchased the apple mac pro. At the same time I purchased the onetoone voucher which I was told I could book on line. Once home, I went onto the website to make arrangements,but found that I couldn't.It keeps saying invalid password. I have even changed my password,logged out and then logged back in to do it, but it still says the same. I am totally frustrated. I rang the apple store but was just put through to some automated service. After 25 minutes in a queue, I gave up. I wanted to save myself another trip to th Apple store, just to book the onetime. Can anyone advise me.....what am I doing wrong???

    You probably need to call Apple directly in the morning.  They can help you with a password reset issue.

  • MacBook suddenly saying invalid password for wireless

    I have a wireless network with an airport extreme and an airport express for streaming music.
    My computer has been connecting to my network without problems for the past two years, and I have not changed a thing.
    Suddenly my music stopped playing and iTunes said it could not find the airport express. At this point, I was still connected to the wireless and it was working fine. I tried restarting everything, but now when the computer tries to connect to the wireless, it says invalid password. It is not. My iPhone can connect to the wireless just fine, so I know it is the computer.
    When I take an ethernet cord and plug it in my computer it can miraculously connect to the wireless. When I unplug it, it stays connected until I turn my computer off, and then it's invalid password all over again.
    I've tried deleting the keychain and resetting the pram. I don't understand what caused this problem.

    Exact same problem. iPhone and ITouch connects but my macpro and Imac could not connect to my airport. My imac connected about 10 min ago but the macpro is still saying invalid password. Have you located a solution?

  • Email not being configured on BB, says invalid password, but the account works online

    I changed my email password and BB then asked to validate the same on the phone. I did. But it says invalid username/password and asked to contact the email provider. But it is the correct one (I signed in my account online just fine). I don't understand what the problem is. I even rebooted my phone twice. Does anyone have any clue what could be done? I tried the Gmail troublershooter, but there seems to be no way to communicate this problem. I really need to solve this as it is a Gmail id I use daily, especially for work.

  • Adding an e-mail account with no password

    I used to have my work e-mail address (not an enterprise account) linked to my blackberry. I have no idea how it happened. When I tried to set it up it asked for a password and I didn't have one for it. I closed the e-mail set-up thinking it had not worked.  However, despite the blackberry saying it could not set-up the account, lo and behold a few minutes later I got the e-mail account activation message and everything was working. This was before I downloaded the new OS.
    Fast forward to today: the e-mail account accidently was deleted. Now when I try to set it up I get more or less the same messages but it does not work magically as it did before.
    I have contacted our IT administrator to ask if there is ac password for my specific e-mail.  We use Microsoft Exchange Server.  He told me there are no other passwords than the one I use to access my e-mail through the internet.  However, I have tried that password and it does not work.
    Any help about this issue is appreciated.

    It will need the password. Have you by chance reset the password and re-tried?
    failing that, try loging into your BIS account here
    and then setting up your email once logged into BIS account.
    If you have forgotten your BIS login credentials. you can contact Rogers to have them reset it.
    hope that helps, lemme know!

  • Every three weeks I can't get e mail error says wrong password what is happening?

    WWhy can't I get e mail every so often - an error message says my password is wrong and I change it but does no good?

    I am assuming  you are referring to your address, since you didn't specify. There is a help page for setting up your client located here that includes a video link if you would find that more helpful.
    For the sake of example, we are going to pretend that we are setting up  fictional account "[email protected]" and the password for logging into that  account in webmail is "fakepassword" - Again, this is a fictitious account for the sake of an example.

  • Mail account with 2 passwords

    I have this requirement. Client uses exchange server. Two people will have the same email account with different passwords.
    To open the mail account, both of them together have to provide the password in 2 steps. Can 2 static passwords can be supported in this scenario or it has to be like 2 step validation with one static password and one dynamic code received through a phone.
    How can the 2 static passwords can be implemented.
