    If your SIM card plan doesn't include data you cannot send e-mails, browse the web, etc.

    If it does include data ask your provider for the APN settings. You can set this up in Settings; Mobile Networks; Access Point Names.

    If the same SIM can send e-mails using a Softbank phone, then I would believe you need to setup the X10 as mentioned above. Also, maybe Softbank allows their branded phone to send e-mails but not others?
