email on ipad and iphone on
I have just migrated a couple email accounts from an old pc to a new pc for a friend
which have worked perfectly with thunderbird

one of the accounts he would like to see on his ipad and iphone

simples i thought

so went through all the settings and cant get it to work

his on / - uses ssl and ports 465/995

as we where setting it up - we had a message about smtp being set to O2
so we went to all advanced settings and set up
on done
the account verified

then we go to mail
and it starts to work - no mail - just a spinning circle and after a long while - comes up with pop error did not respond

same on iphone

tried all the settings -
tried imap - which it did not like

tried - at that said username or password unknown

searched the web and this seems like a common problem - and everything suggested we tried, but nothing we tried worked
any ideas please
Please let us know what the final solution was to any problem posted

I didn't think the iPad could use POP servers for e-mail.
