Go into settings and at outgoing settings at the bottom where you put your username you must enter your entire rr email address, i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org, that solved the problem for me.Good luck
OK, so the SMTP settings mentioned in the beginning of the post seem to work fine so long as the phone is not connected to the Road Runner network. For example, I can send email over 3G and when I'm Wi-fi connected in a Starbucks, but as soon as I come home and connect up to my RR-based Wi-fi network, sending of emails stops working.
Can anyone confirm that you can send email over a Wi-fi connection to the RR network with the same SMTP setting that are used to send when not connected to a RR network?
This all worked without a hitch on my HTC Eris, kind of funny that a newer, better phone seems to have such issues.
Just recieved my droid yesterday
I've read & followed ALL the tips here, but my RR/email still doesnt work.
after using "duke6619" settings.....I receieve the following msg....
"You outgoing server does not support authentication. Please verify your outgoing server settings".
So I think some tech has closed another door in this maze 2 challenge some1 else 2 open it.
Go to to your browser type in only...no http or www...webmail.roadrunner.com in the cinti ohio internet, at least. Log into ur email acct from this page. In my pc, I set it up so emails were forwarded to my gmail acct.
If it worked before, maybe delete it and enter it this way. Then u can check email on browser or on gmail.
Hope ths is not redundant and helps some.
In outgling server settings take the checkmark off sign in.

My problem was that I couldn't send e-mail via my roadrunner account. I was able to receive mail via my roadrunner email account with no problem. Every time I tried to send any roadrunner mail I kept getting "Authentication error sending". I could set it up so that it worked using gmail to send replys to email I received on my roadrunner email account but that's not really a fix just a workaround and I really prefer to reply on the same email account that the email was received on. Also using another mail application on the phone is just another workaround.
Now, my only issue is how do you get multiple accounts to show up on the email screen on the phone? I can get other accounts to show up by switching them to the default account. I wonder is that the only way to get the other accounts to list? Do they have to be set to default to use the account?
