Re: Idiots Guide to SMTP

You will need to use Authenticated SMTP to send from a non PlusNet connection, follow one of the links from here http://www.plus.net/support/email/setup/index.shtml although you will need to adjust for however the N900 is setup.

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.

Re: Idiots Guide to SMTP

I have the same problem on my new Samsung Galaxy S2.  3G no problem.  Sending from home using my wi-fi no problem but when I try to use the wi-fi at the club it won't work although I can use the internet OK.  I was wondering if it was something to do with port settings.  PN have confirmed incoming on port 110 and outgoing on port 25.  This doesn't work. When I use my laptop at the club I don't have a problem.
