Create a "fake" email account that has an invalid username/password to a (real) SMTP server (Outlook requires that the SMTP server is real). And then set that as yourdefault account.
Now, whenever you accidentally forget to select the correct account, the default is selected and the message will try to send through the invalid account and pop up an error message. You can then go into the Outbox, select the right account, and re-send.

Just set up email account. worked first time for me.
from menu: <messages><3 email inbox><ok><options><email accounts><ok><ok> on first account (Account 1)
fill in email account details:
Account Name: enter a arbitrary name that is relevant to you.
SMTP server: enter smtp address of your email provider
SMTP port: leave default of 25, unless advised otherwise by your provider
Email retrieval server type: pop or IMAP4 generally pop will work but use config as provided by isp
pop3 server: typically same as SMTP server, unless otherwise specified
POP3 port: 110 is default
use ssl checkbox. I left unchecked, this would provide a higher level of transfer security but makes config more complicated
Keep on server checkbox, I checked this as my mail emailis my laptop, so I don't wantthis to take all the messages, this way both devices can get messages, assuming leave on server is enabled on other email client on Laptop/PC but set to delete after 7 days.
My address: enter email address in the form: email@example.com
user name: enter the configured email account user name. usually the name before the "@" in your email address
Password: enter password of the email account to allow access, note case senSaTive
Use SMTP authentication checkbox. i left this blank as this is not required by my isp, although some do require this.
Same as POP3/IMAP4 checkbox. only needed if SMTP authentication checkbox is set. if SMTP authentication is set then a name and password is required, generally the same as POP3 name/password entered earlier so just select - same, otherwise if isp setup requires differnt use fill the username / password fields.
ensure newly created account has tick in the box next to it to enable it.
to test create an email message and send. may need to add email address to a contact first.
To receive emails:
<messages><email inbox><options><download> this will download any emails on your mail server
all worked well for me
best of luck

The network provider will only allow outgoing mail to go via their servers, contact you network provider for settings.

It sounds like your charter account is configured to forward all of your email to gmail. If you cannot change this yourself, contact charter and ask them to remove the forwarding rule.

Hi. There's other way to recover your password to your email account. You can change your alternate email account if you can login to our email account which you forgot your password. It is better to create new email account with regards to your problem. One more thing, you can recover your password if you still know your answer to your security question to your email account.
