ipod touch receives but doesn't send

I can't figure out what is wrong here. I get my mail from IMAP server but sending always fails: settings on the apple device
Outgoing mail
SMTP     relay.plus.net
user name + mailbox
password
use SSL off
Authentication Password
Server port 587

Try without username and password.

Re: ipod touch receives but doesn't send

I really want it to work away from "home" otherwise what is the point as i can use my desktop for mail at home.... hence username and password.
I managed to get a mail through to someone on hotmail but the other one i tried  (@yahoo.com) just stuck in the outbox saying it couldn't reach the outgoing server....

Re: ipod touch receives but doesn't send

Well that's strange that one worked and another didn't. Maybe it was a temporary fault?
Also another thing to try is use your username and account password, rather than a particular mailbox.
That's RPM to you!!
