Adding to my dramas of getting a tethered fone to work correctly and having spent the passed few hours looking at similar threads of problems.
With Eudora 7 I can send and recieve emails fine for my ISP account at Orcon using the settings of mail.orcon.net.nz when connected to the fone with the XT SIM and the same for a Vodafone SIM. I would prefer to use XT as Voda is like watching paint dry..
However on either carrier I can't get Outlook to work. With XT I have tried the usual suspects of send.xtra.co.nz or smtp.xtra.co.nz. By fudging my outgoing email address to something like email@example.com I can sent to Xtra addresses but non outside of Xtra.
I asked Orcon but they said.
"I am going to assume that this phone gains access to the Internet via a 3G connection supplied by either Vodafone or Telecom. If this is the case you will need o contact your service provider and ask them what the out going mail server for there 3g networks are.
Adjusting the outgoing mail server to the correct address for the network should resolve this issue."
I am coming to the conclusion that I will have to get a xtra email account setup to get this to work.
Surely a tethered fone is just a data connection and should just work to your ISP or am I being too simplistic??
Will I have this same problem if I get a data stick??
Thanx in advance..
