I seem to remember that for sending email you do not set a password (the server will not accept one). Maybe it is sending the password for sending email as well? But then that was from our cable connection may be different if it is coming from outside of the Telstra network.

Unless you're using a TelstraClear APN I think you'll need to have Mail+ added to your account as this enables remote mail capabilities.
