I am in Tampa tampabay.rr.com smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com and adding authentication and the full email and pw works for me.
My server is stmp-server.hvc.rr.com and use port 25 with no required sign in. I'm in the Hudson Valley which is what I think the hvc means??? But it is the same as my thunderbird outgoing server and works fine....
This worked for me, good luck !
use the following settings:
SMTP Server: smtp.live.com
Security Type: TLS
Require Check-in: add check-mark
Then enter your Hotmail User Name and password and hit "next"
You should be able to send email from your RR account now
Outgoing setting smtp-server.hvc.rr.com (obviously hvc is me..) I do have gmail set up to automatically sync and use my RR account as the default. And I have all sent set up to show my RR email id. Not sure if that has anything to do with my not having a problem. I set them both up at the same time, so not sure if I would have had a problem....But since both accounts are set up the same, maybe my outgoing mail is really going through the gmail server??? Sorry..sounds like I'm thinking while I'm writing....I know I already posted a reply to this, but started thinking about how my gmail is set up to look like it's the same as my RR email....

ugg, this issue (SMTP thru RR over wi-fi) is killing me. I'm still struggling with this issue and I've noticed the solution seems to vary for each user/rr location/phone type. Thanks to this forum, I may actually not have to throw my phone against the concrete and stomp it into 1000 pieces.
pop-server.rochester.rr.com port is 110
smtp-server.rochester.rr.com port is 587 or whatever your rr area may be...... mine is rochester
most important.............. you email add must be in lower case
no secure connection
no verify cet. on pop or smtp
i tried for hours to get this to work i was using upper case for my email add. switched it to lower and has been working for days
I am also having the same problems with outgoing messages. I can't get any to go through and incoming has worked sporatically for me since I bought my Fascinate (droid). I was a bberry user for the last 4 yrs and now am wondering if I made a mistake switching. My emails are my #1 priority for a smartphone.
Yeah I chatted to my IT group at work about their experience with Android phones and email and it hasn't been good. I sooooo want to move from the iphone and ATT but can't risk loss of email.
I have Road Runner and cannot send emails even though push is checked. What is the smtp settings for cfl.rr.com? I keep getting an ! warning.
Open Outlook and then Accounts and then Change to see the exact settings.
As far as email itself; Maildroid solved every single problem I had with email and I too, use a RR connection.
smtp.ca.rr.com is mine - being in California.
I'll assume yours is smtp.fl.rr.com
