Hi.
Using Apple Mail on macbook pro. Im away from my fixed line broadband connection at the moment. I can receive mail fine, however I cannot SEND.  I'm connected to a public wireless network at a hotel and right now am connected to an xtra broadband connection.My home broadband is through IHUG.  my smtp settings are what it should be.  I have been on hold with vodafone for almost 50mins.......   
online help sucks
What I need to check is   SSL and Ports.
anyone???
cheersgoose

Do you have authentication set, and does Vodafone accept authentication when connecting from a network other than their own?

If you are connected to a public wireless network through xtra this is not a vodafone issue.

You will need to use the xtra out going server.

Oh, wait a minute.... You said Xtra?

Xtra, like many other ISPs, block access to port 25 on external networks, to prevent spam, bots, trojans, etc working through the network.

More information and how to opt out is available here http://www.xtra.co.nz/port25
