    I've been setting up my HTC Magic to receive and send email from two email accounts with no luck so far.
    I have tried the email app included with the phone and k9 mail. I go through the whole setup process, input my incomings mail settings the app checks the settings correctly but problems start with the smtp server. I type the server address exactly as instructed but when the app checks the information it returns the following errors:
    On my yahoo account: "AUTH PLAIN failed (530 Access Denied: Intl [es] not allowed in this server" I don't know what this means but this same configuration works on my desktop and laptop

    On my internet provider's account (telefonica): "Cannot connect to server (Unable to open connection to SMTP server)" As above, this account works fine on both desktop and laptop.

    Currently the only way i can send an email from the phone is from my gmail account.

    Any ideas on what could be wrong/minconfigured?

    I've started to think that either Vodafone or Google are blocking those SMTP connections but can't be true, right?
