    So I got the phone today. IT'S AWESOME. however, i've set up my gmail and school email accounts, seemingly without a hitch. I started getting emails right away. Then... i go to respond to the emails, through either account, and my email sending keeps failing! I sent it, then get a message a minute later saying they couldn't be sent. Any ideas why?? Thanks!

    What is the exact error message? Are you getting undeliverable responses from your mail server?

    It simply says 'unable to send email'

    Sometimes this happens on computers too if they are set up incorrectly. Make sure everything is correct.

    Are you using wifi? Try disconnecting and sending again.

    nope not using wifi. how can i check to see if they're set up correctly? i mean, i can recieve emails no problem which leads me to assume there's not a set up issue...

    Sounds like a configuration error. Check the server names/ports and try again.

    Your SMTP servers probably require authentication, which is probably not the default on the mail client.

    ok so when i verified the settings, the outgoing server settings could not be verified. says 'cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. your server is not responding. but it DOES verify incoming server settings. do the ports need to be the same for both?

    Can you change the smtp server? It sounds like you have the wrong SMTP server information and thus cannot send outgoing mail. You'll have to look up your e-mail accounts SMTP seetings

    it depends on the server...
    as far as google goes:
    Configure your client to match the settings below:
    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL: pop.gmail.com
    Use SSL: Yes
    Port: 995
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL: smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
    Use Authentication: Yes
    Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
    Port for SSL: 465
    Account Name: your full email address (including @gmail.com or @your_domain.com)
    Email Address: your email address (username@gmail.com or username@your_domain.com)
    Password: your Gmail password

    can't speak about your school.

    I know IMAP can use different ports. I think default is 63 but my server uses 64.

    Did you set them up manually or just put in your email address and password?

    put in email address and PW. asks for user name, password, STMP server (which for me, shows up as 'mix.wvu.edu'.), security type, and server port... incoming setup is fine, outgoing wont work

    Outgoing server for you is:
    exsmtp.systems.wvu.edu
    use TLS if you get the option.

    it keeps saying my server is not responding :( this is frustrating.

    i tried exsmtp.systems.wvu.edu which tells me it cannot connect to the mail server to verify info

    then i tried exsmtp.wvu.edu and it says authentification failed. please verify username/password which are both correct. AHH

    Have you ever done this from outside the school. Pay attention the the requirement of a CentralID username and password.
