So you’ve made the leap and purchased the New iPad and now you’re ready to play with it. First you need to configure your POP email account in order to send/receive email. After copying your configuration from Outlook or your Smartphone, you are now ready. All goes well and you are receiving all emails without a hitch. Now you try to send a test message and that’s when you are faced with the dreaded message, “Server Rejects Email Recipients“. You don’t need to panic.
First ensure that when you add your email account under Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendars and you select Other, all information is complete. Once you have inputted all the information that is requires and you are on the New Account screen, make sure that the Tab that is selected is POP and not IMAP. Selecting the incorrect tab can give you the Server Rejects Email Recipient error.
To get around this error, under Outgoing Mail Server settings, be sure to enter your user name and password even-though on the iPad the settings might say “Optional”. I’ve had a few situations where I’ve left the user name and password to optional blank and have received the error. Once I’ve inputted the login information then the error message goes away.
Hope this works for you.
