I had my iPhone 5 stolen yesterday. Sorry for the irrelevant detail but I am grumpy, and what adds insult to injury is that I may have to wait weeks to get a replacement. So, I am using my museum-piece original iPhone running iOS 3.1.3. It is very slow but it works as a phone and I can _receive_ email. Could be worse.

I have been to the Apple page at


I just can't seem to send an email on my iCloud email account. I think I have ried every combination of the above. I am overlooking something?


Thanks for helping me out.
