Setting up your Texas.Net email account on your iPhone

Texas.Net was one of the first dial-up Internet providers in San Antonio.  Many folks have switched to high speed Internet but love their original texas.net email address.  If you are one of those folks, and would like to have your email on your smart phone, here is how to set it up.  I recently spent many hours working with a friend to get this to work and thought I would share with others who might want to do the same.

For your incoming server, use pop.texas.net but make sure you select port 110.  We had to first select no when it tried to connect using SSL.  Texas.net does not support SSL connections.

Enter your username (only the first part of your email address before the @ sign).

Disable SSL

For outgoing server, do not use mail.texas.net, instead, use cwmx.com with port 25
Disable ssl for this server as well
That’s it, this should get you up and running.
