    Attempting to setup my work email on my Evo. The incoming settings are correct and it connects no problem. However I am having some problems with the outbound settings. We do no require login for the outgoing server. So I removed the check mark but then the next button is grayed out. I am receiving email but am currently unable to send any messages. Thoughts?

    Are you sure there isnt authentication required for outbound?

    Google "send mail from telnet" and use those instructions and see what you get (on your computer). I'd almost bet you get a "relay failed"

    100% certain. Was told I need TLS and port 587 for outbound settings no user name or password. Looked at our firewall rules and found I was being blocked. Opened up a large IP range which was verified to be used by Sprint.

    If I add the user name / password for the outbound settings I receive an error message of "Your outgoing server does not support authentication. Please verify your server settings."
