Re: E-mail setting for THREE network

Maybe I didnt explain as well as I should have done.

 

I have a BT Yahoo account, all set up on the Galaxy S3 I have, via the Three Network. I can receive mail no worries, but it refuses to send them. It just simply says sending failed. I assume this is something to do with the outgoing configuration. I was hoping to find out if I need to change the config or something like that.

I understand now what you are trying  to do. Did your read what Andy_N said about account validation, and the restrictions placed by other ISPs?

 

Does it work if you connect via Wifi to your home hub?

Re: E-mail setting for THREE network

that is the standard settings for setting up outgoing mail on your mobile - I am on O2 but should be the same

Hi again.

 

It seems that you are trying to send btinternet emails vie the three network, so you almost certainly need to use the three smtp mail servers in order to send emails via that network, notwithstanding what I said earlier. Receiving is independent and normally unaffected whichever network/ISP you use, but in order to prevent abuse etc, sending is different.

Re: E-mail setting for THREE network

I don't use a 3 connection myself, so can't check for sure, but a quick Google suggests that 3 might be preventing connections on standard SMTP ports unless you use their own SMTP service...

Re: E-mail setting for THREE network

I can send emails from my btinternet email address using my S2 mobile on O2 using the BT mail server settings and not anything from O2 - unless Three are different

 

edit  from IanC comments looks like 3 may be different

Re: E-mail setting for THREE network

Just tried it on the Wi-Fi at home and no joy. I am guessing Three will have to tell me a setting to change. Will await there reply! Not soon I think...

 

Cheers All

Re: E-mail setting for THREE network

Try this. In mail preferences go to the outgoing server and edit the server. Put in smtp-mbb.three.co.uk.
use port 26 or 587. Require sign in and enter your user name etc.

 

3 block port 25, see this link
