Thank you. I can’t believe no one else knew this.
Thank you so much! The problem has been driving me crazy for weeks. I went to the Apple store, my phone provider, my email provider, none of them can fix it. I searched and found this article, it just solved my problem in a minute! So relieved. Thanks.
After visiting several other sites and trying many of their “solutions” which were not solutions at all, I was thrilled to find yours. Your step-by-step instructions were very easy to follow and best of all, it worked! Thank you!
