The point of the support communities is not to post a survey, but state a specfic problem that you have encountered, and ask help in its resolution. Otherwise, you are creating a vague lightning rod that is sure to attract anyone ever having a negative experience with Apple Mail, and no solution will derive from it.

Apple mail on a new iPad 64 using OS11 is unable to set up communication with GoDaddy pop servers. Mail can be sent, but not received. Tech support at GoDaddy has told me they no longer support those systems and the fix is to go to Microsoft exchange mail, which I have no use for.

ouch! Trying to set up apple mail on an iPad 64 using ios11 to access app mail server on the GoDaddy system. The AppleMail will not log on to the server to receive mail, even though it can send using the server. GoDaddy tells me they no longer support those old mail systems, in favor of Microsoft Exchange mail servers, which I don't need. How do I get my iPad to access the server using Applemail?

No ouch intended. I don't own an iPad capable of running iOS 11, and all of my email accounts are IMAP, not POP. Won't be able to help on your issue.


Sounds like you need a different email ISP too, because if there was no driving business reason for Outlook, I wouldn't touch it with a stick either. 😉

If GoDaddy is dropping support for POP mail accounts, then that’s not an issue with whatever email client your using. It’s an issue with your unwillingness to either move to whatever protocol GoDaddy supports or find an alternate hosting company and move your domains there.


You cannot lay blame at the feet of the email client if the source of the issue is unsupported protocols on the server side.


I use 1and1 for my domain hosting and they support IMAP for my personal domain emails (they also support ecpxchange if one prefers) and have zero issues with iOS mail and those accounts. Never have had an issue either. Exchange mail accounts also work fine with iOS mail when I’ve set them up.
