iPhone users SSL email issues

FatGalah recently updated the SSL certificate on our server. This seems to have caused some random issues for a small proportion of clients who use iPhones and iPads to send/receive emails.


Clients have reported issues such as:

  • Not being able to send or receive emails on iPhone or iPad despite being able to send/receive on PC desktop
  • Receiving the error messages 'Cannot Verify Server Identity'
  • Receiving a message saying SSL certificate 'Not Trusted'

We've tracked down the problem, which requires users to update their mail settings on their iOS devices.

Follow these steps to update your mail settings.
