I can receive emails but other people cannot receive emails from my phone

Hi William
Setting up an Email account on a Computer or iPhone is divided into 2 parts. The incoming mail server (POP) & the Outgoing (SMTP) server. You need to fill in these details correctly.
Send an Email to yourself to test this out.
That way it's quicker to test and you avoid annoying your friends while getting this Problem sorted out.
Your problem seems to be that the mail is not Sending correctly.
Which means that the details you are entering in the "Outgoing" boxes is incorrect.
Now, I've had this same problem on my iPhone on several occasions. The problem can be that you are using your own ISP details as you would on a fixed location computer but your outgoing email goes to your mobile carrier first. For example....
My email settings from the computer might be .au
Most of the time this works on the iPhone as well but, when I'm out in the country away from home it sometimes gets stuck in the "send" box. (It doesn't get sent)
So I open up my email settings in Settings / Mail,Contacts, Calendars. & Choose the Account Name I am using to send email.
Then look at the OUTGOING Mail Server / SMTP
and I see the PRIMARY server which is "" in my case. Underneath is another heading called.
in here I enter the mail server that the mobile phone company uses... (my mobile carrier's email setting)
Enter details & turn this setting ON and if the first PRIMARY server can't be contacted then the secondary one can.
Some email accounts don't like SSL turned on.
I have SSL off & no user name or password in my settings, yours may be different depending on country & carrier, (I'm in Australia)
(Check your ISP's Email Setup requirements on their web site to get their preferred settings. Same for Mobile Phone Carrier.)
Sending via the Mobile carrier (who uses different settings) is what causes the problem. So...... by putting in this alternate route, it often solves the problem.
Now... it pays to note that sometimes these settings get so screwed up that just putting in the alternate settings fails to kick in. So...
I have found that, Deleting the Email account settings completely, does the trick....
Simply "Delete Email Account" and then re enter the full details again. (This has also worked on the computer as well)
Be sure to write down the old settings first or on the iPhone, press the top button and the bottom "thumb" button at the same time, will take a snapshot of the screen image and store it in the "Photos" App which allows you to refer to the settings later.
Hope this Helps

Cant get att internet set up on i 68

you need to get details from your mobile company to input manually. Phone mobile company for details requesting them to be sent to your email address and print off for reference. Press Internet services on phone then select input address and manually input mobile wap address as supplied by mobile network supplier.

HTC HD won't connect to my email server


Not sure if this helps or ot, as the original question was a little lacking on detail:-)

If you are using t-mobile (might apply to other operators as well, but I could only test on t-mobile) try the following:

Connections Tab
Set up my proxy server
Clear the tick box title "This network uses a proxy server to connect to the internet"

Worked for me.

Application and url gprs

hi there! thanks for using!

Just a little bit of information:

General packet radio service (GPRS) is a packet oriented mobile data service available to users of the 2G cellular communication systems global system for mobile communications (GSM), as well as in the 3G systems. In the 2G systems, GPRS provides data rates of 56-114 kbit/s.
GPRS data transfer is typically charged per megabyte of traffic transferred, while data communication via traditional circuit switching is billed per minute of connection time, independent of whether the user actually is using the capacity or is in an idle state. GPRS is a best-effort packet switched service, as opposed to circuit switching, where a certain quality of service (QoS) is guaranteed during the connection for non-mobile users.

The Nokia 3650 comes with all the software you need to connect to the Internet. Although the phone doesn't have a built-in web browser, it can access Internet content via the Wap browser (from the 'Services' menu). You can also set up the phone to access email via the messaging application. This page provides details of how to get access to email on the move with your 3650. For help with Wap, see the menu on the left


Problems connecting?
  • Ensure that your Network operator (e.g. Orange, o2, Vodafone) has 'data-enabled' your SIM card. If not, call their Customer Service people.

  • Problems with GPRS. If connecting with GPRS, you need to make sure your network operator has enabled GPRS on your account. For more on this, and other GPRS troubleshooting help, see our GPRS page
Problems sending emails
  • If you get an error such as "Problem sending message", you may be trying to send a message to one ISP's mailbox while connected to a different ISP. To prevent spamming, most ISPs require you to connect to their service (not someone else's) in order to send an email via their SMTP server. For instance, don't be surprised if you find that can't send mail from your BT Yahoo account (using the server address if you've logged on to Virgin Media.
Problems retrieving emails
  • If attempting to retrieve email gives you a "General: System error", make sure you have "Gateway IP address" set to (Tools | Settings | Connection | Access points)
    This message also appears if you are trying to connect to an email account over a WAP connection (e.g. trying to connect to BT Yahoo's mailbox while dialed up over o2's WAP service).
Problems logging in
  • If, when attempting to log in, you're constantly prompted for your password, even though you know you're typing in the right password, there are two possible causes. If you're already logged in (via a web browser or a PC program like Outlook, then you're often not allowed to log on via a second device. Make sure you're not already connected to your email provider on another machine. The other thing to check is that you're account hasn't been temporarily locked as you may have made repeated attempts to log on incorrectly. Many ISPs allow you to check your mail via a web service... it may be worth trying this to make sure your account is working properly and there are no problems at your ISP.
Problems with GPRS
  • Most mobile phone operators use different APNs (Access Point Nodes) for WAP-over-GPRS and email-over-GPRS. The upshot of this is that you can't connect to your email server over a GPRS WAP connection. Additionally, you may need to have your network operator enable access to the Internet/email GPRS service.

    Problems with o2 - If you experience a "GPRS: Invalid GPRS access point" error when attempting to connect to, say, Virgin Media, over o2 via their APN, this is likely to be for one of two reasons - either you have not entered the correct o2 Mobile Web APN settings, or o2 has not enabled "Mobile Web" on your account (in which case, contact o2).
Hope this will help you a lot! Cheers! don't forget to mark!! thanks!

Not connecting gprs

Only your service provider can give you the settings. Your Nokia N70, IS able to receive the settings via a msg. If they tried and it did'nt work, try again make sure you tell them precisely the make and model of phone. They might have sent you the wrong settings the first time.
If you get no joy, tell them that you will change service provider.
