    I just switched from an original Droid to a Droid Pro. Since I use Roadrunner as my pop3 mail account, I can't use their SMTP server. I've been using Gmail's SMTP server in its place for a while without problems, but I can't seem to find the correct settings on the Droid Pro.

    This is what's there:
    SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
    username: name@gmail.com (on droid, I just used name and it worked, I tried both)
    Password: password

    Advanced settings:
    Port: 465
    Use secure connection: checked or unchecked
    Use secure password(TLS): choose from never, auto, always
    Authentication: choose from none, auto, mds
    Verify certificate: checked or unchecked

    I've tried every combination of these settings and can't figure it out. On the Droid, it worked by using SSL, checked require sign in, and used username and password. The Pro doesn't have these options.

    If anyone has this working, please specifically tell me your settings.
    Thanks.

    Im gonna try to help you out here.

    1. From home screen go to all apps.
    2. Go to Messaging app not Email
    3. Click menu, manage accounts then press add account button
    4. Click email icon not google
    5. Enter you email address and password and UNCHECK "automatically configure account checkbox" then click next.
    6. This will allow you to enter your settings under General settings, Incoming and Outgoing settings for either POP or IMAP.
