Not sure if this is the correct forum, so go easy!

I have an IPAD2 wifi version and have been trying to set up email (service provider is slingshot). Can receive email, but wont send. error message is " was rejected by the server.

I have gone through google for solutions and tried many things, but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas? Also does anyone know the email settings for slingshot? I have tried using what it says on the mail setting on Imac, but doesnt seem to work.

What smtp server address are you using and what network are you connected to when the mail is rejected from sending?
