    Sorry for what may seem to be stupid questions but I'm new to this phone, came from a Crackberry...

    What does push mean?

    I'm also trying to send email w/ my work account, I can get the mail but can't send. I get the Authentication Send error and I've tried ever setting I can change, been at this for a few hours... Getting a little frustrated. I've had it work on other phones...

    I've got gmail working just fine....

    Thanks for any help...

    If your company has a tech department, you should ask them for the email server settings.

    Oh and push means it "pushes" the emails from the server to your phone.

    What protocol are you using (pop, imap, exchange)? You're settings on your phone should be the same as on your computer.

    Both appear to be the same. In your OP you asked about push. Did you modify any setting for push. I've not used or seen an X so I can't provide concrete guidance, sorry.

    I have a Droid and use the corporate email client for exchange and K9 for my gmail.

    An possible option would be to forward all of your work email to your Gmail which will get to your X. That may, however, not be in accordance with your works security policies and procedures so you should check with your IT/security folks first.

    Great! I like K9. There are lots of setting that change the view and selection for mutli.

    Hope you enjoy the phone!

    There seems to be a setting that needs to be changed on the stock app but there is no place to do it...

    I was able to get K-9 working after I changed a setting, no signin required...and security set to none....

    guess the stock app is too strick or idiot proof???

    First, If you arent using corporate sync, then I suggest K9 as the stock email client even in IMAP mode will not delete your messages from the server. K9 will.

    As to your mail issues, are you sure your mail server doesnt require auth? Without it, its saying that nayone can connect to your mail server and send mail through it. Your laptop might have some other settings from the IT department that identifies it when it conencts to your corporate servers.

    Your best bet here is to use google as the conduit... Gsynit and google sync are the two most common...

    I have read this entire thread as I am having identical problem. I use Road Runner pop acct and my sent mail is piling up in the Outbox with an orange triangle icon with an exclamation point in it. There is nothing I can find to do to make it send. i have compared he settings with those on my laptop and are identical as far as I can tell as there are a couple of items not included on each. The Phone will not send Pop amil but will send Google mail but that acct was only set up at purchase Thursday cause they said i had to have it.

    I have not tried this K9 App as I really want to learn to use the basic Apps of the Droid -- it is my first Droid. Been with Verizon/Alltel forever with a basic flip phone.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Just download K-9 and set up manually so you have more options when setting things up...you'll then get all the options you have on your pc/laptop.

    thanks for prompt reply but as I said -- I want to learn the Droid Apps first btu of course if the Droid can't handle Pop email that's not too cool. Real frustrated been trying to figure this out several hours. And sending replies is difficult and not intuitive -- seems to be several different arrows or buttons to hit, but then it doesn't leave the Outbox. Why should you have to use a third party App to do basic email? If I have to I of course will cause no way I'm changing all my RR accts to Gmail.

    Are you sure this isnt an issue with port 25 being blocked? just to be sure try port 587. if thats not the problem you should look to dump the stock client. its not that good anyways.
