Email Set-up for Smart gprs

Hello all
I am new here. Has anybody set up his T68i email client to send and receive email using GPRS? My service provider is NOW Cable and e-mail is through Infocom. I tried setting it up but the Infocom servers refuse connection.
Appreciate your help

Regardless of the provider and bearer (csd or gprs) the T68 does not SMTP-authenticate and instead use POP-authenticate. If the SMTP server doesn't allow relaying (and most don't) you will not be able to send.

If you have manged to set your email up on CSD then it will work on GPRS (providing your GPRS connection is to the internet and not just the WAP Gateway - for instance, Vodafone U.K. has 2 seperate GPRS setups for internet and WAP).

Thanks for the replies arnold and Cophia. Is this it? I mean, if the T68i does not smtp-authenticate and the Infocom server does not allow relaying, then I can never use the phone's e-mail client to send and receive? Can you please clarify?

let me clarify... you can use the T68 to retrieve email from POP3 and IMAP servers. When sending, your ISP must not SMTP authenticate. If you're using Globe set smtp.globe.com.ph as your outgoing server to send mail.

You're using Smart so set outgoing server to smtp.smart.com.ph

Just set up my e-mail client similar to my Infocom settings in my PC, but with the exception of outgoing server, replacing smtp.info.com.ph with smtp.smart.com.ph as you advised. Didn't work either. "Server not found". Its so frustrating because no one in either Smart or Infocom can give me a straight forward answer when I ask them.

Server not found is caused by:

1. Wrong data account, or
2. Lack of DNS in the data account

You must be using the data account 'SmartPC' in your email account's 'connect using parameter'

The data account 'SmartPC' must have a DNS entry. It should be

SORRY!!! Smart-Infocom e-mail system thru GPRS and phone email client is not yet operational. Nobody can say how long it will take them to set-up the system.
Anybody getting any news from these people??
