Sorry I don't haves better news, but K9 for now will work.

I have a friend who was having the "can not send email, but can receive emails" problems with both her phone Sprint Galaxy S phone and setting up Outlook to connect to her Charter email account. In doing the investigation for the Outlook setup I ran across this error message. “Server Response: ’571 imp09 smtp.charter.net You must connectfrom Charter IP space.”This lead me to believe that Charter does not allow people not using their internet service to connect to their SMTP server. To fix the issue on her computer I set it to use a different SMPT server (in her case Comcast since she uses Comcast here as her ISP) with her Comcast credentials for the Outgoing SMTP server and the incoming server and all other info set to the Charter account. Took a bit of time at first to get all settled, but now it works like a charm.
I then applied the same solution to her mobile account with ONLY substituting the Comcast SMTP info in the phone's configuration for the Outgoing server and now it works too. And yes your email still looks like it's coming from the Charter account and all replies will be sent to the Charter account, not the Comcast one.
For information sake I used the configuration info found here to set up her phone + my Comcast Outgoing server substitution.
Mobile Email Settings - Charter Communications
- Server Name: mobile.charter.net
- Port: 993
- Security Type: SSL
I hope this helps!
I have not tried making sure I always exit with the escape key instead of the menu key that someone suggested. I am going to try that tonight.
I'm pretty sure I figured this out. Setup your droid device with a Pop account and not SSL.
Incoming server = mail.charter.net
Security = none
Incoming Port = 110
Outgoing server = smtp.charter.net
Security = none
Outgoing Port = 25
This works perfectly for me.
