Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I set up an email account in my iphone for my work account, which is on an exchange server. I can read and receive emails perfectly fine, but when I attempt to send one, I receive an error message saying 'outgoing server unable to connect to xxx.xxxxxxxxx.net'. (x's are my outgoing server's information). I am using the same information my IT guy gave me, and it works on his iPhone. I have no idea what to do.
Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > (select your email account) SMTP > (Click on Primary server) > Make sure your Username and password are entered here.
try that. ;)

I had the same problem. I had to add /exchange to the end of my server name (mail.server.com/exchange) then it worked perfectly. You also need to make sure that your smtp port on the exchange server matches the iphone's smtp port and that your firewall won't block it.

I was having the same problem with the yahoo small business account. You have to set it up as IMAP, not POP, to see all the folders. However, I have not been able to find that info on the yahoo site. So, if you don't care about seeing all your storage folders, you have to set it up as a "other account." Do NOT select "YahooMail" as your service. Set it up as a POP account, turn ON SSL for outgoing mail, smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com at port 465, but turn it OFF for incoming mail using pop.bizmail.yahoo.com. Again, you won't see your storage folders with this as it has to be set up as IMAP.

I wanted to use my AOL account on my iPhone. I've the same problem as the other users - I can't send e-mail with my iPhone via my AOL account. The handset has limited settings to alter - how can I use the phone?! I don't have access to I.T. experts - that's why I chose the iPhone for my mobile AOL mail. This is a serious problem in my opinion. Apple appear to have misrepresented the iPhone as being both easy to use and suitable for AOL mail users.

Under settings for your outgoing mailserver SMTP choose "MD5 Challenge-Response" approvel instead of "Password"

I have an email account that makes me change my password periodically. I not only had to change the password in the main email settings screen but I also had to change it in the SMTP settings screen. That should fix it.

I had the same problem with AOL iphone. I am a Mac User. I went to my account settings in Entourage (Outlook), accessed the account, clicked Advanced Options and checked the SSL box and changed the SMTP Authentication Box from Receiving Mail Server to User a/c and Password. You need to check the box allowing Mac Keychain to access always. I was asked for one confirmation on the computer when I sent a test message and since then it sends automatically as before and I can now send from the phone when not in wireless range.

It's been my experience that this is an Exchange server issue with the way the iPhone sends Windows users information. If you can access the Exchange server -- When I had this issue I tried changing the SMTP connectors Authentication settings from Windows Authentication to Clear Text Passwords and was done with this problem.

Try to turn off the Wifi connection and just send the email under EDGE. It is the only thing that has worked for me. But this is pretty stupid work around.

/exchange worked for me too!! Finally an answer, thanks!!

My experience is that this is an Exchange server issue with the way the SMTP connector authenticates the iPhone users credentials. Try changing the SMTP connectors authentication from "Windows Authentication" to "Password sent in clear text" (make sure to stop and start the SMTP connector) -- no changes are necessary on the iPhone.

This seems to be harder to get working on the latest phone. On the 4S I setup two accounts - both of them are normal pop3/smtp setups. I had to turn off SSL for both but one account I had to have NO USERNAME and NO PASSWORD which displays a "optional" greyed out in the user and password fields of the SMTP setup. The other account which happened to be a Comcast account FYI needed the username and password as well as SSL off. Both were set to port 587. Any other setups including the default one and the imported on (from my old 3GS backup failed to send mail from either account). This does seem like a frustrating setup and way too touchy for anyone but an advanced user. Not being able to send mail from a new phone is a big deal.

I have had the same problems with sending emails from the Iphone.
"Recipient rejected by server"
Check your settings and make sure that the username and password information is filled for both incoming and outgoing mails. Once the account has been verified you should be able to send emails with no problems. Worked for me any way
