    I have successfully set up my yahoo and gmail accounts on my droid 2. I am trying to set up my school's outlook account and for some odd reason it will let me receive push messages but it will not let me send anything giving me an "authentication error"

    Select the Menu
    Select EMail
    Select Add New Account
    Enter account information �current PipelineMTuser name@mtmail.mtsu.edu� example: (xyz2a@mtmail.mtsu.edu) and email password.
    Incoming mail server settings =
    port = 993
    Security Type = SSL
    Outgoing mail server settings =
    port = 587
    Security Type = TLS
    Select finish.
    Configuring other clients/phones
    Here are the settings you will need in order to configure your email program to check MTMail:

    Username/Login Name: Username@mtmail.mtsu.edu (all lowercase)
    Return Address: Username@mtmail.mtsu.edu
    For the incoming and outgoing mail server settings, additional security measures are required, noted in the field below. Most e-mail programs take care of setting the ports for you if you select the right security option in the account setup, though some programs require you to use the "Advanced" account setup to view the security options.

    Field You Enter Required Security
    Incoming Mail Server (POP) outlook.com Must connect with SSL (port 995)
    Incoming Mail Server (IMAP) outlook.com Must connect with SSL (port 993)
    Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) pod51004.outlook.com Requires authenication. Must connect using TLS

    These are the instructions as given by the school to have the email work but its still giving me issues. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
