Anyone know how to setup the outgoing mail server for WIND?
I setup my Shaw email on my Google Ion, and it didn't like any combination of Shaw SMTP server information. So, I randomly put smtp.windmobile.ca and it seemed to work. However, when I send an email it doesn't.
I don't think they have one. I think you need to use SMTP authorization with your email provider's server, if your email provider has that setup. May also need to use the SMTP submission port, because I'm not sure if port 25 is blocked.
It's my understanding that Shaw does not allow the use of it's outgoing smtp server unless you are on Shaw's network. My advice would be to sign up for a gmail account and use Google's outgoing server.
I have never heard of an ISP allowing people to send out mail using their outbound SMTP servers unless you're one of their customers on their internal network. This is a huge NO-NO since spammers would be all over that in a second.
Only way to send out mail is to install a server client on your home PC and use that, or like others mentioned, use gmail or another free service.
I know Rogers uses Yahoo mail to host their email service and on my blackberry I simply use the "Setup email" program for my @rogers.com account and everything works fine, maybe Shaw uses a similiar approach.
Sorry I just noticed this was for wind, what you need though for outgoing for shaw is winds. outgoing server name,
Shaw Email setup
User= name used in home email to acees email
Pop server = Pop.shaw.ca
Security type =none
Smtp server = Mail.1xbell.ca
Port = 25
Security type = none
Does NOT require sign in
The above works on bell, but NOT VIA WIRELESS, it wont send out shaw on a wireless network!
- POP3 server: pop3.live.com
- Port: 995
- Security type: SSL (if available)
- SMTP server: smtp.live.com
- Port: 25
- Security type: TLS (if available)
These both work.
Shaw is apparently allowing their servers for outgoing mail now. I remember reading something about how you may have to log into your webmail and enable the mobile beta feature.
Click on Preferences (right side of screen - it’s a text link beside Feedback)
Click on the ‘tab’ that says ‘Mobile Access’
Set it to Enabled (click the radio button beside it)
You may need to change your password to meet their new security requirements.
Press Save. It will say “Preferences saved” in a small yellow box at the top of the page if it’s successful. https://wmbeta.shaw.ca/doc/offnet-de...tructions.html
You can't use port 25. This wouldn't be secure anyway.
Just about EVERY email service provider will provide an encrypted outgoing mail port (i.e. SSL/TLS), typically on port 465, sometimes (rarely, since it isn't correct use of the port) on port 587.
Yes the Shaw works, just make sure you have a password that will pass before you start the process, the process has a bug and would not let me save changes, so if your pass word does not meet their requirements change it before you set up your mobile. So it works wifi, and outgoing via cell data, this is both new as Shaw never worked these ways before.
There's a good reason why I gave up on using ISP e-mail a full decade ago... I knew that my online identity would stay with me a long longer than I would stay with any one provider. If you're still using an @shaw.ca address you may want to try and migrate away from it.
