Friend has an iphone and we cannot get her sympatico mail to work properly here in Nova Scotia.
Incoming seems to be ok but when I set the outgoing to be smtp1.ns.sympatico.ca it keeps coming up with the message to try without SSl. As far as I know the sympatico outgoing here in NS do not use SSL. This is an older sympatico email account and just tried mirroring what is in her Outlook on her iPhone. Anyone have any insight?
I had similar problems. After I changed to the mail.1xbell.ca server my outgoing mail works on the cellular network but strangely does not work when I'm connected thru Wi-Fi.
That's because when you're on Wifi no longer on the same network and don't have an IP address in a block that is allowed to relay mail through that server. While you're on Wifi you'll need to use another SMTP (mail server) that allows you to connect and relay mail through.
Thanks for the info, I was on the phone with Bell for hours about that problem and they never came u with an answer! Do you know of any STMP servers that allow connection thru Wi-Fi?
It's not that the server is not allowing connections through wifi, but the server isn't allowing connections from anyone outside of its network. Do what Boukie said and try the MSN Sympatico mail server (the server you use for your Sympatico mail on your computer). Because that server requires authentication to use, it should allow for off network use.
When wifi-connected, you might consider firing up your www browser and then connect to Sympatico's email server. I'm sure they have a "web mail" option for email. This will overcome problems associated with smtp, relaying etc. since you will be directly connected.
