    It says it cant connect to the server.
    I've heard that you can link it to your gmail and reply to emails like that. But I'd want the receiver to see that it's been sent from my cs.ucl.ac.uk account and I have no idea how to do this.
    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    It's going to be one of two things probably.

    1) The settings you are entering on the phone are incorrect.
    2) Your SMTP server will not let you relay messages.

    I'd need a closer look to advise further im afraid.

    Hey I did Computer Science at UCL! Are they still running a UNIX mail server, that might be your problem because I think the default mail client only supports Exchange Active Sync.
