    Ok, so I admit, not a saavy tech girl. I need some help trying to figure out what the OUTGOING SERVER SETTING is for my Droid X (along with the PORT setting and will I require a SSL?) so my MSN account will allow outgoing emails on the Droid. Verizon says contact MSN and we all know how impossible it is to get any help there.
    Anyone know what those settings are? For some reason, my outgoing emails are not getting out.
    Many thanks to all you smart peeps out there ;o)

    Welcome! I do not use MSN but if you look at the settings on your computer you should find the outgoing. I'm guessing it will be smtp@XXXXXXXXX

    Hope this is helpful

    Ok, well I did not locate where the outgoing server info was, so I am back to square one. I looked at every conceivable possibility on the control panel, and nothing lead me to that information. Any other suggestions?

    The settings will be in your email app settings not the control panel. I use Gmail on a Mac and the outgoing setting is : "smtp.gmail.com" try that and substitue msn.com.
