I used good old fashioned trial and error and sorted it!!!!!!!!!!
Tiscali settings iPad
Name: Your own name choice
Email: your tiscali user email@example.com
Then click next and choose imap option NOT POP3!!
Then change settings to tiscali.
Incoming mail server
Host name; iMap.tiscali.co.uk
Username;your user firstname.lastname@example.org
Password; your own password
Outgoing mail server
Username; leave blank
Password; leave blank
Host name; smtp.tiscali.co.uk
Use Ssl ; off
Server port: 25
hope this works for you!!!!!!!!!
For primary server
Mail contacts and calendars
Under accounts click on your new provider/account you have just set up.
Under IMAP click on account name you have just set up.
Under outgoing mail server click on you new provider you have set up under SMTP......
You will see the primary server at the top of this list.
Hope this helps.
After trying for the longest time to set my partners Tiscali account up on both the original iPad and the latest iPad 4th generation version, I had failed miserably .
However, I have just followed our very clear and concise instructions, and like magic, he can now access his Tiscali/Talktalk account on both iPads .
Thank you so much, this information works like a dream.
I am new to forums but saw your response my problem to others, whcih seesm to work for them, but unfortunately will not work for me, so i am hoping you can help me
I am trying to set up my tiscali.co.uk email account on a new ipad mini
despite following your instrcutiosn step by step i cannot get it to accept a server that will work
first it fails and says cannot connenct using ssl, try without? whcih i do, but still no joy
despite what i save, it still me that the PRIMARY SERVER is not configgured,
then lists all the other servers i have tried (under smtp.servers) such as smtp.tsicali.co.uk
and smtp.talktalk.net, even imap.talktalk.net,nothing seems to work
any suggestions please??
Just a final note to add to this. After much searching around I have now come up with a way of making Tiscali emails send from any Internet connection. See the two links below. It's a bit of a faff having to create an O2 account, but once it is created, you set this as your primary server in the iPad email settings for Tiscali and that's it. All emails send and receive from your normal Tiscali account, but simply use the O2 server as a third party. Works for me... Pity it took 10 months to find the answer....!
