iPhone mail client troubleshooting

I have added a DreamHost email account to my iPhone but it won’t connect.

Your iPhone detects all settings and connects automatically to your mailbox. Sometimes, however, the connection may not be successful the first time it attempts.

Sometimes, it may take several taps to activate the Connect button before it connects correctly.

This behavior is caused by a known problem in the iPhone’s mail program.

If you have sync problems, the Advanced section can be modified as follows:

To allow IMAP clients to communicate with DreamHost servers, you must change the IMAP Prefix to INBOX (all capitals).

Most desktop email clients function normally, but instead of showing the Inbox as a whole, they show the folders in subfolders.

To send messages, tap Sent Mailbox in the MAILBOX BEHAVIORS Section. Next, tap the folder that you want to use for sending mail (in the ON the SERVER section).

You will see a paper airplane beside the current selection.

The message “Cannot Verify Server Identity” appears

After you connect, you will see the following message if you enter a hostname other than imap.dreamhost.com

To ensure that the hostname you have entered connects to imap.dreamhost.com, please review the steps. This will fix the problem.

Emails are bounced with a ‘rejected by the server because it does not allow relaying‘ error.

Double-check your outgoing connections settings if you get a “relaying” error. Also, make sure you are using .dreamhost.com for your hostname and your username and password.

Push and Fetch settings
DreamHost emails accounts do not support Push. Use Fetch or Manual.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get more information?

If you have trouble or suspect you may have mis-set something, please refer to the Email Client Configuration section above or contact DreamHost support.

How do I manually select POP3 and IMAP on my iPhone?

The iOS mail client has recently been updated to automatically detect whether the server supports IMAP or POP3. You can manually make the selection by entering an incorrect email address on the Settings page of your iPhone.

You can choose which protocol you want to use, and the settings won't be auto-detected. Make sure to change your email address to [your correct address]@[yourdomain].
