Hi Liam,


I've looked into this for you and this is what I found out....


You should use the SMTP server details for your email provider, as you would when using your home broadband for instance. That way you can always use the same settings whether at home or on the move, and there’s an added bonus that your emails are less likely to be marked as spam as you’re not sending your mail through an open mail relay.


Your email provider should be able to give you the details you need, but you’ll probably need to get the following:


-       Server

-       Port number

-       Your email username

-       Your email password


Hope that helps!

I've switched from Tmobile to ee and my Iphone now will not send emails over the 3G network.  Does anyone know what the smtp server is for ee when sending talktalk emails over 3G?  I have got the sending emails working ok over wifi but it wont send over 3G.


All help appreciated.
