Thanks Ross x 2
Yes I know of those instructions. I did have them printed out. But went into the telstra Clear site the other day to check them and they were gone! Yes - they were, I was not (not) seeing things they really were gone!
Anyway, Telstra Clear has just sent me the instructions to setup my email on android. That is in reply to my request to do that.
I set up my email client using Port 25 on SMTP. That accepts and I receive advice that my email is set up. But, when I then attempt to send an email from the account that I have set up on my adndoid tablet (Nexus 7) to another email address that I also hold on Telstra Clear and/or to another email address (my son's and daughter's) those emails do not send. and on rechecking the outgoing server settings fields that I originally used in my setup and that were accepted I find that the Port 25 has changed to Port 587. When this issue first of all happened I told Telstra Clear of it and was told that port 587 is the blocking port placed there to stop me and any other android emailers from sending spam via their servers!
PS - I do not use a phone for my android email client (my Telstra Clear email address/details). I am using a wifi capable only Nexus 7 Tablet.
Still a puzzle to me that on a recheck of my email client settings the Port 25 I have set (as is in the Wizard that I have used for the setup) changes to 587 later (after I have received a confirmation of my email being set up).
Anyway, as I now have the setup instructions from Telstra (as advised above) I shall remove my email account that I have set up. Then I shall recommence all over again being meticulous to follow the instructions I have just received. Then it is all fingers and toes crossed!
