    SMTP setting for road runner e-mail

    I am having trouble getting outbound e-mail working for my road runner e-mail account. I am able to receive e-mail, but I can't get the device to accept my SMTP settings. The settings are:

    SMTP server: smtp-server.cinci.rr.com
    Port: 587

    Whether or not I check "Require Sign In" and enter my username/pw, the result is the same.

    A google search seems to indicate that this has been an issue for iPhone and Pre users in the past, but none of the proposed fixes for those devices seem to work.

    Are there any road runner users that have overcome this issue yet?

    I have the same problem. No outbound mail capability. Anyone have ideas or do we need to wait on a software fix?

    Seems like RR has spam problems so you MUST be on a road runner IP address to send email from a RR account.

    Quote from the AT&T forums:
    In order to use RR email, you MUST be connected to a RR IP address. That's just how they work. POP accounts are notorious for having problems with SPAMing, and one way to prevent this is by relay blocking (relaying messages from one POP server to another.)

    If you connect with WiFi to a RR router, your email will work. Any other IP address will not allow you to send email.

    That was my primary reason for me going with a .Mac account; no problems sending/receiving email from anywhere.

    Guess I'll need to do the forwarding to Gmail to reply until some other work around...

    Thanks for the quick info.

    I had to set the outbound mail port to 25 and it started working.

    I just changed mine and it wouldn't finish the connection. What was the port number originally? Should have written it down befoe I changed it.
