OK! Under Advanced/Incoming settings, "Use SSL" was not on. Go figure. Well i'm glad that un pleasant experience is over. Can I go and enjoy my new phone now!?!!
Thank you all for the help. If you're ever in the London area, send me an email and I'll buy you a Starbucks. (no, I'm not rich). 😃
Have you tried deleting the email account from the phone & re adding it again to see if it works?
yes, I spent hours on the phone with Rogers and no luck. I know it's got something to do with the outgoing server settings, but what are they suppose to be?
Did you add this one manualy? (enter in the pop/smtp address)
Or via one of the pre-set ones.
ANd is your internet through rogers, or someone else.
I know, SOMETIMES, if you say try to send something via your emails SMTP server, and your not on the internet by that same provider, it wont work. Not sure if rogers servers are that way.
I did at first do it automatically but then later changed some of the manual settings. Rogers also verified the settings but I think we're missing something somewhere. Yes, I am with Rogers.
Let me guess this straight. So you can SEND emails via WiFi BUT when connected on Rogers network you get told its the wrong password?
Which network does it do that on? EDGE, 3G OR LTE? Also which email are you using? Gmail, Hotmail or Rogers mail?
I think ive seen this problem before, what mail server settings are you using for outgoing mail server (smtp)
The problem is when your on cellular, you need to use roger's smtp server and when you are on wi-fi, you need to use your rogers@home e-mail server settings. now, the server is probaly rejecting the login maybe u need to add the login credentials to the rogers @home outgoing mail server, please get back to us and let us know what settings you tried so we can furhter assist
ok, with cellular data turned off and connected to my wireless network at home (rogers) I get username/password error. Right now I have several smtp servers setup but the primary is: smtp.rogerswirelessdata.com user name *****@rogers.com
password:****** Use SSL OFF. Authentication PASSWORD. Server port 25. Server button is on.
