    I've had my Droid2 for a few months and I have never been able to get my outgoing mail through my ISP provider (zoominternet.net) to work. I can receive mail, but I can't send. Incoming mail is pop3, outgoing is SMTP. I tried using gmail as the outgoing server and it worked, but the problem with that is that replies go to my gmail account and I don't typically use that. I want to be able to send from my ISPs SMTP server so replies come back to my zoominternet mail account. Any ideas?

    Oh, and the only error I see is that it says" message not sent" and leaves the message in my outbox.

    You could forward it from your gmail account. I'm sure someone else can help it get set up right so that it works how you want but thats the only thing i know.

    Change outgoing port to 3535 or 587

    I have the same problem with my @live.com mail account. I do not use that very much so, I never have figured out what is wrong. I have spent a few minuets here tinkering with it and all I get is Unable to Connect. I do not know what else to do.

    There is a bug that I have seen with a lot of droids and the stock email app. Try something like k9 mail or touchdown as an app on the market.

    Same issue here with RoadRunner, very hit or miss, mostly miss. On 3G only it seems to never send. The verizon salesman uninstalled my Roadrunner account and re-installed with the same settings and it worked for a day or so.

    Roadrunner tech blames Motorola, Motorola blames RR.......

    Too bad there seems to not be a permanent solution to this.

    Only error message I get is "Authentication error sending" as a Verizon notification.

    I have Motorola Droid with K9 Mail which until this point I've loved. Now I can't send. Get a message that says unable to send mail. I've tried shutting off, pulling battery for 30 seconds but still won't work. Any ideas?

    Uninstall K-9 and reinstall. I dont recall any recent updates to K-9, but do you recall a recent update by chance? If so you might need to revert to an older version till the dev fixes it.

    Solved -Sending Authentication Error Droid 2 Global

    My wife has been receiving the same error since I gave her the Droid 2 Global a few days ago. I changed the Outgoing server Advance settings for the "Use secure password(TLS) to "Never" and the "Authentication" setting to "None". Works now. I guess "Auto" doesn't really mean auto.dancedroid

    Yeah, K9 works for me with the exact same settings I had in Droid's native mail app. I'm not really happy about that. I feel like my Droid phone should be able to send e-mail without having to download an additional app. It makes me feel like Android is sub par and buggy. Considering switching to an Iphone. :icon_eek: (preparing for backlash)

    Thanks for all the info.
