Email problem sending on Ipad after password change

Email problem sending on Ipad after password change

My Comcast email was hacked so I was advised by Comcast to change my password.  I did that on my Dell PC at the Comcast.net site and on then my Ipad.  Now I can receive email on my Ipad, but cannot send.  I have checked all setting in my Ipad and they look correct.  I even delete the email account from my Ipad and created it again with the new password.  Still not able to send email from my Ipad.  Everything works on my PC.  Any suggestions?

Re: Email problem sending on Ipad after password change

In iOS, you need to set the password in two places------for the incoming server, and then again for the outgoing smtp server. Did you do that? If not, to change it for the smtp server;


go to "Settings" on the home screen, then scroll down to" Mail, Contacts, Calendars", click on the account, and then on the next screen tap the "account" again. Scroll down to "SMTP" and tap that. Then tap "smtp.comcast.net". On the next screen you will see the password. Change it and then tap "Done" in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
