I am presently using two e-mail addresses on two Windows & one Mac laptops. No problem. However, when I try to load a bluewin.ch e-mail address on either an IPhone, an IPad, or an Android smartphone, it will not allow me in & gives me an "Unable to connect to the server" msg. I have spent hours on the internet trying to find answers. I have been to a Swisscom shop in Geneva trying to find answers. All they could say was "change your password." I refuse to believe that changing a password is the answer, but I did that; to no avail. WHY WILL BLUEWIN NOT CONNECT TO A SMARTPHONE OR IPAD? High level of frustration here!!! Merci
I refuse to believe that!!! Bluewin is hiding something, because changing the password DID NOT WORK for me. My Mother-in-Law is almost 80 years old, & she HATES change; so changing her password is a NO-GO. What the hell is wrong with Swisscom that they can't solve this issue???? I have had to change several smartphones, have not been able to link her to her e-mails with an IPad, and now everyone seems to throw up their hands & say, "Changing the password is the answer." Ain't no-way!!!!!!!!!!! Swisscom, SOLVE THE PROBLEM!!!!
Please check that your settings are up-to-date
The e-mail parameters should be as follows
Incoming mail server
IMAP4: imaps.bluewin.ch (Port 993)
Outgoing mail server
SMTP: smtpauths.bluewin.ch (Port 465)
Authentication method: password, plain, normal or SPA deactivated
Thank you for checking and letting us know.
Alternatively, the swisscom bluewin webmail is a simple solution, running on all platforms and always up-to-date
