Apologies in advance for a rather long post, but a very important one.
3 iOS devices using native Mail app
1 Windows (eM Client)
ISP: AOL (Yahoo)
Issue: About once or twice a week, eM Client will not connect to AOL and I get the red triangle/exclamation point next to the mailbox. I then try to use Mail on the iOS devices and they also give an connection error. If I close all mail apps just walk away from all the devices and return (in say 15 minutes) all is OK. Annoying because of Sod’s Law: only happens when I’m expecting an important message
Background: 1. I had the same experience using Thunderbird which is one of the reasons I switched to eM Client. At first I had no issues, thought this issue was solved, but obviously it is not. 2. Recently I did not have access to my Windows/eM Client computer for about a month. During that time I only had the iOS devices and never had a problem.
I have always blamed AOL/Yahoo for this so I am considering switching to a different ISP. Perhaps it could it be that eM Client connects to the server in a way to gums up the works. When I was using Thunderbird someone on that forum blamed Apple and said they gum up the works.
So my question: Who is gumming up the works? AOL/Yahoo? eM Client? Perhaps there are different methods to opening connections to the servers that makes a difference?
I am willing to change providers (hate AOL) but it’s very important to know before going through the HUGE effort to do that, just to find out the issue was eM Client all along. (And I really want to keep eM Client!)
