Hello!

I hope this is the right forum for this...

Today I got a Vodafone 715, which seems to be quite nice. The phone has the option to send e-mails, so I configured
a mail server that I have somewhere (POP and SMTP), wrote a small test message and pressed 'send'.

Sadly, I am getting an error message: "Invalid recipient address". The address, however, is definitely correct. Also, the
connection to the server itself seems to work, because earlier I had given a wrong password and I got an authentication
error. A different message this time, after authentication had passed, so really, it seems to be the server. Yet, when I
send messages from my normal (PC based) mail client, they work just fine. It's just when I send them from the mobile
phone that it complains about the inavlid recipient address.

Does anyone know what could cause that, or has anyone experienced the same thing?

I'm a Vodafone pre-pay customer, in case that should make a difference.

Thank you very much...

johnr: Out going server should be smtp2.vodafone.net.nz also make sure your reply to address field is correct.


Thank you, that helped.

The problem for me now is that in order to receive e-mail from my own e-mail account, I need to use authentication (username and password). Of course, this is different than what I'd need to specify for the Vodafone SMTP server. In fact, to send e-mail, I shouldn't use authentication at all.

But  in the 'account' I create in the phone settings, where I specify my own POP server, but Vodafone's SMTP server, I can only say 'Use authentication' for both of them together. This means that once I enable authentication to be able to receive messages, it will now also attempt to use authentication for the Vodafone SMTP server. But for that one, I don't seem to have a username and password. Is there a default username and password I should specify for that one?

If possible, I would like to avoid having to go into my account settings and change the authentication setting every time I want to read or write e-mail.

Thank you very much...

Note that you will be paying casual data rates on prepay which will be an absurd amount of money, until 28th July, when the new $1 / 10 MB / day plan kicks in for prepay.

Thanks for the warning, Mauricio. Yes, I noticed that already: Doing an occasional balance check inbetween fiddling with e-mail makes for a rather eye popping experience! Smile

I assume that the new rates from July onwards mean that I don't pay any data rate per day if I don't use it, but if I do e-mail/web-browsing/etc. then on that day there will be a $1 charge, which covers up to 10 MB in volume, right? That's how I understood it.

Ok, I don't want this to go too far off the original question: Is there a default username/password I can use for the Vodafone SMTP server, so that I don't have to switch authentication on/off everytime I want to receive/send e-mail?

I can't seem to pair my 715.  Any tricks to get them to play nice?  The phone says it's paired, but my HP Pavilion stays busy for half a minute and then says pairing failed.
The manual says something about software, but there was no CD with the phone (bought new).
