post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Trying to setup my email, shaw support won't help and have spent 3hours with apple support thoroughly......

Any thoughts? Ask me anything, if it's tried, i will reply with, example, I have been doing recreation of my email account. Gmail works fine.... But shaw doesn't....


I have chosen no ssl, with ssl. Shaw doesn't do ssl... Etc..

Any thoughts???

I was able to get mine working finally. I used shawmail.vc.shawcable.net for both the incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server. It will come back with the SSL question. Say yes for it to try setting it up without SSL. I had do to that twice and it finally connected. I am now able to send and receive shaw mail on my IPAD. I live in Vancouver so my setting as vc. If you are in another area you will have to change that. For example Edmonton would be .ed. I found it quite painful to set up and tried quite a few options but this finally worked. One other thing I set mine up through Settings, Mail, Contacts, Calendars. It didn't seem to want to work through the Mail icon. Hope it works for you too.

Just tried it today, got pop.shaw.ca for incoming, and outgoing, shawmail.cg.shawcable.net (could not use it for incoming...) and had to use 110 incoming as it defaulted other... and 25 outgoing... it was very picky, but had to be re setup like 5 times just to allow it to work after going through the SSL question twice... boooh
