Sending SMTP mail through Wifi hotspot

by Rouke Starter Poster
Message 1 of 5 (1,971 Views)

Hi,

 

Does anyone know how I can send (SMTP) messages using my Paradise email account through my Android phone (with a Spark account) set-up as a WiFi hotspot? What is the correct SMTP server host name? I have tried 'send.xtra.co.nz'  and 'smtp.officemail.co.nz' with 'server TCP/IP port' set to 25 and 465, but get error messages like:

 

13:43:22.786: --- 28 Nov 2014, 13:43:22.786 ---

Hi Rouke,

 

The issue is most likely that you need to have the email address verified for use on Saprk's network as they have had endless issues with spam.

Thanks Lon,

 

But what is considered the outgoing SMTP server? Paradise or Spark? In other words, do I need to specify SMTP.paradise.net.nz or send.xtra.co.nz or smtp.officemail.co.nz?

 

I have tried many options, using SMTP.paradise.net.nz , but if I want to try a Spark outgoing SMTP server, I guess I need to set up an account with them, otherwise they have nothing to verify the email address against?

 

Regards,

 

Rouke

do your settings work on mobile data? if so then xtra is the problem so you should be talking to them as they block port 25 (?) for email if a non xtra server is been used (in this case pardise/VF).

 

You need to get the xtra account holder to ask for port 25 to be unblocked

Yes

 

The general rule is you use the smtp server of the internet service provider (ISP) you are connecting to

 

So

 

-If you are connected to Xtra, you use their outgoing server address.

 

 

-If you are on a cafe, hotel, friend, relative or airport wifi, you use their ISP smtp server. 

 

-If you're on mobile data or using a mobile data wifi hotspot, you use smtp2.vodafone.net.nz

Ruth.
