    If you are using WiFi with a standard ISP then it is most likely that they have blocked port 25. This is standard practice to prevent spam. You will need to use your server's alternate port or send through your ISPs mail servers.

    After doing a ton of searching on my own... HERE IS THE SOLUTION:

    Setting up a Verizon Wireless SMTP account

    Yes...yes.... Aplause...yes...I know

    I am now able to send all of my other POP email accounts directly. Enjoy!

    Ok...I knew that but let me check this.. It's comcast and I'm getting the cannot connect to outgoing server message...

    On the setup page 2 it asks for name, username and password- there I put in Comcast info,

    On page 3 it asks for account type (pop3) and name (comcast)

    On page 4 incoming mail is mail.comcast.net:995 , outgoing mail is smpt.vzwmail.net, domain is left blank...

    hit options, then next, click outgoing mail requires authentication, click use seperate settings, then click outgoing server settings are

    "Server Name smtp.vzwmail.net
    Username
    10-digit mobile number@vzwmail.net (e.g. 9995551212@vzwmail.net)
    Password
    My Account password "

    obviously I put in my relevant info. Save password, don't click require ssl for outgoing mail.

    Still not working...thoughts?

    Use Comcast's outgoing mail server. Don't try to relay your mail off of Verizon's mail server. That is your problem.

    smtp.comcast.net use that as outgoing.

    Are you specifying authentication for the outgoing mail server? Do not specify authentication for outbound mail.

    Just use smtp.comcast.net:465

    Didn't work. I appreciate the help, but the funny thing is through this site and verizon technical assistance I have, in 24 hours, received 3 completely different answers... Does anyone know a site with some screenshots?

    Use mobiPush - Free Mobile eMail Delivery. Basically turns your POP email into an exchange server. And it's FREE.... Works great!

    yup!

    works great. realtime push of emails.

    I set it up on my wife's and father's phones... I still use wirelesssync to push contacts and calendar items, but disabled email. mobipush works great!

    Wish I could have got it working. I'd try and contact comcast and see if they have a solution.

    You couldn't get Mobipush to work? You realize you use ActiveSync and not POP email when you're setting it up on your phone right?

    Call VZW CS and tell them you can't access their SMTP server. They will reset your account. I had to do the same thing last week. Outbound SMTP access just quit out of the blue. Something likely changed on their end and they told no one. Troglodytes!!

    From their forums:

    mobiPush does not currently support HTML eMails. Though this is a feature we plan on supporting in the future.

    I completely baffles me that in 2008 companies think that non-html emails are acceptable. Why is the technology so behind??? I know the answer, it is Microsoft, but geeeze!!

    Sorry for the rant. It just gets to me

    You pay for the service. If you use Verizon Wireless Sync then no extra charge. If you use someone elses Exchange Server. Which I highly recommend then yes.
