I was getting the same "Authentication failed" problem after I upgraded the ROM, wiping all the email settings I've had for months.
What I'd forgotten (if I ever knew) was that the PASSWORD you use when setting up the account on your phone is a different one from the familiar (memorable) one which you use to log in on the orange website.
To find out what your "other" password is:
- log in to your orange email on a computer
- Go to "my settings"
- Click "Receive my POP password by SMS"
You'll get an obscure password that you don't recognise. THAT'S the one to use when setting up orange email on your phone!
Also, remember to un-tick "Login required" in your Outgoing Server Settings.
