I have set up an iPhone to access a slingshot email account. Receive works ok when at home on Wifi/Slingshot broadband and when on 3G.

I have configured the iPhone so email can be sent via 3G (vodafone) but it fails when at home on Wifi. 

Is there any way to configure SMTP so it works on Wifi/Slingshot and 3G/Vodafone.

You can have 2 smtp servers on the iphone so add both one for slingshot and the other vodafone smtp2.vodafone.net.nz

If the first one fails as I understand the iphone will try the second

I just encounter the same issue myself... 2 days ago. I setup slingshots SMTP server and used SMTP Auth to log in that way I can send emails from any provider I use my slingshot username and password to log in and send make sure you use SSL

That's the settings I have which works fine when not connected via Slingshot i.e. 3G or other wifi. It appears you can't use ssl when coming from a Slingshot IP address
