Here are the current email settings for Tiscali users. Tiscali has been taken over by TalkTalk but users are still advised to use the old ‘legacy’ settings listed below.
Please bear in mind that there are 2 main types of email client setup, one which uses Pop3 and the other which uses IMAP. In short, IMAP “synchronises” your PC or phone with the Tiscali server and keeps emails on both while POP3 downloads all emails to your PC or phone. If you are setting this up on an iPhone, I’d recommend using the IMAP service. You can even use your PC on IMAP as well as your phone so everything syncs nicely.
Tiscali email settings for Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, iPhone and iPad
Anyway, here are the current Tiscali email settings. I’ve included FTP and Webspace to make it a definitive list, but these aren’t needed to setup your email:
|Incoming email (POP3)||pop.tiscali.co.uk|
|Incoming email (IMAP)||imap.tiscali.co.uk|
|Outgoing email (SMTP)||smtp.tiscali.co.uk|

hi i’ve been trying to set up my tiscali webmail on my ipad without success – it now says ‘the smtp server “smtp.tiscali.co.uk” doesn’t support password authentication. Please check your account settings and try again’. I’m not sure what this means? I’m using imap for incoming mail (should i also on my iphone?)
Hi. You should first try removing authentication. From the top of my head it’s in Settings > Mail, Contacts, and Calendars
Find the right account and change authentication settings there to test, I think it’s under ‘Advanced’.
