Everytime I try and open my mail app, it says "Cannot get mail. No password provided for " " Please go to mail account settings and enter a password,


And if I ignore that and try and send an email it says, "the connection to the outgoing server "apple.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" failed. Additional outgoing mail servers can be configured in settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendars."



This is all on my ipod touch.

I went in on my laptop and changed the password of my email account but that didnt help

iPod touch, Windows Vista

    - You can try resetting the iPod but I doubt it will work but it does not delete anything.

    Reset iPod touch:  Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home

    button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - I would delete the account on the iPod and recreate it.
