Well, my web host has just changed the rules for me.

On my harrier what should my outgoing smpt email server address be, such that i can send emails ?? The incoming pop3 address is my web host, but they advise they are not the outgoing host (I have been using the same pop3 address from incoming and outgoing mails and has worked fine up until today).

Any help would be great.

Andrew

You will have to use your own or perhaps the Xtra smtp server (only if you have an Xtra account).

There are a couple of commercial smtp servers around (www.smtp.com is one). I personally use myrealbox.com, but they don't accept any new accounts.

That's probably because it needs authentication. Is your pop account using the same username and password as the Xtra account? If yes, then you can check the box to tell Pocket Inbox to authenticate with the SMTP server using the same credentials (Outgoing e-mail server requires authentication in advanced settings).

Windows Mobile 2003 and older Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition versions do not have independent settings for pop and smtp servers. If you really need this separate, then check WebIS Mail.

most webhost allow you to use the smtp server on the webhost provided you log in. double check if this is possible. otherwise you could use vodafone's smtp, it's open.

Some ISPs block access to all SMTP servers apart from their own. This is a growing trend which is intended to reduce potential for spammers to exploit their networks.

I know that Xtra have implemented such a policy, but whether accessing the Internet via T3G is the same as accessing the Internet via Xtra, I don't know. I am surprised that using Xtra's SMTP server doesn't work when you authenticate using your Xtra account details. Have you tried using Xtra's SMTP server with no authentication at all?

If all else fails, you could always contact T3G's customer service and see if there is an SMTP server that they offer specially to their own users. After all, if they block access to SMTP servers outside of their own network, then they would have to offer something of their own.

Any connected Harrier can use smtp.xtra.co.nz as you are effectively using xtra/telecom as an ISP when you connect a Harrier.

Just so you know - accessing the internet via T3G is the same as accessing via Xtra. T3G uses the Xtra back bone. Xtra accept the IP range from T3G for POP3/SMTP.
