A dialog box titled Account Added then pops up and quickly disappears, replaced by the Accounts dialog box. Return to the the Home screen, select Mail then send an email from and to this device to verify that mail is working.
  9. If the verification failed, check for typos in both the Incoming and Outgoing sections in the New Account dialog box.
    If there are no typos, retype the password in both sections, and select Next again.
    If the error Cannot Connect Using SSL appears, select Yes to continue. Enabling SSL is important as it encrypts the connection between your desktop and the mail server. Set it up later in Change iOS 16-17 Email Settings.
