Driod will not send email from any email account but Gmail
I have mediacom and live for 2 of my email accounts. I have found some info regarding this, but it does not answer the questions to my problems. So, I am posting a new thread to, hopefully, get some answers.
The Gmail works fine, of course, on my Motorola Droid. However, when I try to send an email from the live (hotmail) or my mediacom account it just goes into the outbox and will not send. I hit "send outgoing messages" and nothing happens. My outgoing servers are set correctly and are able to communicate, however, the phone will not send anything out. It seems like it is a setting on the phone. Both accounts worked fine on my Blackberry Storm II.
mediacom outgoing server = mail.mediacombb.com
Any ideas?:byeBB: hopefully.
FINALLY figured out this issue!
Alright guys... I've been having pretty much the same issue for the past 24 hours since I got my Droid X. I was searching ALL over the internet tirelessly trying to figure out WHY THE HECK I could receive e-mails with my Droid X but could not send any. I tried every possible port and outgoing server combination (knew that my outgoing server info was entered correctly) and none of it would work. I kept getting Authentication Error Sending messages or just plain "was not sent" errors.
I finally decided to download K9 E-Mail and when I was doing the manual setup with K9 I figured out the issue with Droid X's standard e-mail service. The Droid X standard e-mail service does not work with e-mail providers that do NOT require login for sending outgoing messages. If you go into the K9 setup... it has a check box "Requires Login" in the Outgoing Server setup. I had to UN-check this "Requires Login" box... because if I left it checked and simply put in my username and password, it would not work. I assume this is because my e-mail provider does not require login for outgoing messages.
Droid X's standard e-mail service does not have this "Requires Login" checkbox... instead it ASSUMES that your e-mail provider requires login for outgoing messages (because it makes you put in a username and password in the outgoing server setup). This will not work, obviously, if your provider doesn't require login.
Really makes me angry that I spent so much time today fooling around with these e-mail settings just to find out that it was a stupid design flaw by Motorola. I hope they fix it soon.. because even though I can use K9 E-mail, I should not have to! I should be able to use the standard Droid X e-mail.
Hope this saves some people the headache that I had all day today.
