My Asus Nexus tablet - had it since August 2012 - has the "option" to set up my home email client on it. My ISP is Clear.net.nz. I discovered after set up that I could not send any emails using that client. Clear (Telstraclear) advised me after raising a query with them that they "block" my ability to send any emails because they do not wish to clog up their servers with spam. That is their policy with any android devices and there is no way around that.
Has anyone else run into this? I have a gmail account so can use my device to send emails anyway. Other mobile devices - non android driven - are acceptable for send and receive features of one's own email client.
Would the policy of Clear change now that Vodafone own them? Have I just by my own bad luck got the wrong ISP - depite that have been with them all along (via Paradise then to Clear). Or should I have bought a device that is non android?
What comments and/or other experiences or advice have others got for me in this scenario?
