It depends how you are accessing your email. If you are using a web based email such as gmail, I am guessing that a firewall is not your problem. If you are using an application such as Thunderbird and accessing a pop account, you may need to open up some ports in the firewall. Here are some common port numbers for email.
Account Name: Whatever you choose SMTP Server: smtp.live.com
Secure Connection: TLS
Incoming Server Type:
POP3 Server: pop3.live.com
POP3 port: 995
login: not ticked (you can apply it)
Secure connection: SSL
limit: 500 (you can change it) IMAP4 Incoming Mail : this is
greyed out and set as new Retrieving option: Subject only (you
can change it) Keep on server: ticked (you can change it) My
email address: your email account Username: your complete email
address Password: your email account password POP before
SMTP: NOT ticked SMTP authentication: TICKED Same as
POP3/IMAP4: ticked User name: this is greyed out and blank Password:
this is greyed out and blank
It would help if you mentioned your provider, ie "live.co.uk" "gmail.com" etc. Enter everything as normal (email & password) & change these options. I know only these 3 so far,
Account type -POP3-, Incoming -pop3.live.com-, Outgoing -smtp.live.com-
Account type -IMAP4-, Incoming -imap.mail.yahoo.com-, Outgoing -smtp.mail.yahoo.com-
Account type -IMAP4-, Incoming _imap.gmail.com-, Outgoing -smtp.gmail.com
These should be the only changes you need to make, always check the secure connection. If you still have problems setting up change your username to your full email address, you'll find it between your email and password. Hope this helps as it took me months to figure out the simple switch of "co.uk" to "com" or deleting the "4" from "imap4" in the incoming sever. Hope these tips help!

I'm not sure if this is of any help to anyone but these are the steps I used to set up email on my Monte. I'm using an old hotmail account that didn't support IMAP or SMTP properly. 1.Set Up a GMail account eg. firstname.lastname@example.org 2.Set GMail to allow IMAP via the settings link the the top right hand corner. (under Forwarding and POP/IMAP) 3.Under accounts and import set up the send mail as to send mail as email@example.com. Set this to default send adress 4.In the same tab under check mail using pop3 set up the pop3 to recieve from someone@ hotmail.co.uk 5.Under Email Accounts on the Monte set up email with the following charecteristics: Account Name: Hotmail SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com SMTP Port: 465 Secure Connection: SSL Incoming Server Type: IMAP4 IMAP4 Server: imap.gmail.com IMAP Port: 993 APOP login: greyed out Secure Connection: SSL Download Limit: 500 IMAP4 incoming email: New Retrieving option: Whole Message Keep on server: checked My email adress: someone@ hotmail.co.uk (This is the adress the phone puts in the from line of an email) Username: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: gmail password Pop before smtp: greyed out SMTP auth: checked Same as POP3/IMAP4: checked Username: greyed out Passowrd: greyed out This should allow you to recieve new messages from the time you set up the gmail account on your phone and to send emails with all the appearences of coming from your hotmail account while actually coming from google's smtp server. Really do check that the GMail is set up properly, make sure it recieves emails adressed to your hotmail and that it sends in your hotmail account's name.
account name: GMAIL SMTP server: SMTP.gmail.com SMTP Port: 465 Secure Connection: SSL Incoming Server Type: Pop3 Pop3 Server: pop.gmail.com Pop3 Port: 995 APOP login : not checked Secure Connection: SSL Download limit: you can configure this your own (mine 500) Retrieving option: i chose subject only Keep on server : checked My address : is your email add User name: this your user name, sample, email@example.com Password : your password Pop before SMTP: checked SMTP Auth: checked Same as POP3/IMAP4: checked press save... now exit your email setup wizard, go to your messages menu, select and press settings... select email, then, select profiles( this profile will lead you to you browser profile) select the profile which connects you to your internet, sample, vodafone gprs, web2(mobily), jawalnet (STC)..cellone.. after you have done this, select your email and press download and check.

Some tech info to help problem solve. POP3 is the technology involved with receiving email, SMTP is involved with sending. (Lots of people saying they could receive but not send, but their SMTP settings weren't correct)
