I have looked everywhere on your site and cannot find them. I am unable to send email from home at the moment.

Nice work Bowtronix!

Pretty fast off the mark there, I've marked your post as the correct solution so someone else can find it if they need to.

 

 

BethHarris: You can also see the SMTP settings on the Mobile Broadband info page found here.

I tried to use   smtp.vodafone.net.au   didn't work.

 

However, I changed my outgoing SMTP server from my android phone to    mail.vodafone.net.au   and all is OK.

I noticed your response to the subject title above 13/3/2011.

 

I have tried the exact smtp for Outlook 2010 using the pocket wifi and is has requested a password prior to verifying the outgoing mail server? Where would i find out what this password is?

 

Cheers

Hi spryan0907,

 

It sounds like your outlook was previously used with a mail server that required a password. 

 

Vodafone's mail server does not require a password, so all that you need to do is turn off this function. If you are using outlook, the tick box for this will be in: settings>more settings>outoing>require authorization

 

If you are using a different version of Outlook (Express etc.) let me know and I can help you with this.

 

Cheers,

 

-Bruno.
