Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I receive e-mail on my iPhone from my RoadRunner e-mail account, but I cannot send e-mail from the iPhone (unless I am at home and the iPhone is picking up my the wireless signal from my router).
So when away from home, my iPhone downloads the e-mail from my RoadRunner e-mail account, but I cannot reply using the iPhone or originate and send new e-mail from the iPhone.
BTW, the same thing happens with MS Outlook on my laptop when travelling. When I connect to a hotel supplied Internet connection, Outlook will download my e-mails from RR, but I cannot use Outlook to reply or originate new e-mails.
Got any suggestions?
I can receive emailos but I am unable to send emails?
What error message do you get when you try to send?

SOURCE: Sending e-mail on iPhone
Setting up incoming pop email from Road Runner to iPhone is straightforward.
Setting up outgoing email is not.
In general, Road Runner requires that you be connected to their network through one of their cable modems in order to use their outgoing SMTP server. Since, an iPhone will never be connected this way, you need to find an alternate way.
There are at least three ways I know of:
1) Send your outgoing mail through Cingular or AT&T's smtp server. This works and is no extra charge, but it has the disadvantage that it only works through the slower EDGE network - not through WIFI.
2) I understand that Google offers free email, and through their free email, you can use their outgoing SMTP servers for your RR account.
3) You can sign up with an outgoing SMTP service like www.authsmtp.com. I use this method. It costs about $25 per year. Your outgoing email works through both EDGE and wifi, and it appears to the recipient as if it came directly from RR.
I recommend either option 2 or 3. The google way is more for a do-it-yourselfer. The authsmtp way is a paid service, so there are good instructions and support. I have several months left with authsmtp, but at some point I may switch to Google.
I did number 3 and its fantastic!!
