Email Client Issues
I've had my MT3G since August and have become very familiar with everything on/in it BUT the Email client. I'm having a similar problem that I've seen in this and other forums where my outgoing mail refuses to send or be deleted. I have tried using the K-9 email app but keep getting the 554 Service Unavailable error and the test email that I'm trying to send is still sitting in the out box.
The incoming settings for the POP3 as as such:
username: just myname (not my email address)
POP3 Server: mail.mycompany.org
the outgoing settings are:
SMTP Server: mail.mycompany.org
i don't have a security setting set because when i have messed with it in the past the app throws up an error saying that server is configured incorrectly. I've tried changing the POP3/STMP server to just mycompany.org and have also tried changing the port number to 537 (or something like that), i have also tried entering in y entire email address instead of just putting in y user name.
Any ideas? I'm willing to try anything at this point! It would be amazing to use my phone more efficiently at work

yeah it's just fruuuustrating!
I actually have tried the secure login with both my user name and password as well as my whole email and password. I get an error that says I need to go back and reconfigure my settings. This sucks because I LOVE my phone and this is really the only major issue that I have with it and there seems to be no solution...

It might be the port settings. The incoming setting may not "should always be 110". And the same for the outgoing. Port 25 is a wide open port. Verizon, for instance, recently changed their port settings for security reasons, and sent out notification to change settings on any mobile or third party access client used to access email. I changed my settings to their requirements (incoming 995, outgoing 587) and have had no problems. Check with the email ISP to see if they've changed access ports for security. They should have instructions somewhere for setting up mobile access.
The trash folder still doesn't empty, however. From what I've read, this is a known issue with the Android POP email client.
(Yes, I know that says "Verizon". I am on Tmo mobile with a MT3, but my home internet is Verizon DSL. I prefer my mobile to be GSM, not CDMA.)
