    Does anyone know what SMTP server we are supposed to use for sending
    email via GPRS? Any message I send via smtp.fido.ca is rejected with
    "Invalid recipient", even mail to my own fido account. I can
    successfully send email to other SMTP servers I have access to - it's
    just more awkward because of the security restrictions I have to go
    through to access them from outside, which is why I thought it would be
    better to use smtp.fido.ca.

    Nope.
    "Message could not be sent"

    Does it need a username/password?

    My setetings are:

    SMTP Server: gprs.fido.ca
    Port: 25
    SMTP Authenticate: NO

    Note that one of the fido SMTO servers that end up delivering the mail
    has a bad DNS entry in one of the servers, so from time to time, emnails
    sent from Fido are considered spam because of the failure to reverse
    translate the IP of the Fido server. However, this is a problem at the
    internet level. You do not see this from the handset at all. I.E. you
    handset confirms the mesage has been sent.

    Same as my settings, but gprs.fido.ca doesn't work for me.

    But substituting my own SMTP server works, with the correct password
    and username.

    I'm on the west coast, so maybe it doesn't work for us out here.
    Wouldn't be the first time Fido has had strange and pointless regional
    differences.

    Can you let me know which IP/Hostname you think is broken?

    aegis.fido.ca

    If you make a search for that string in can.internet.highspeed, you'll
    find a detailed message about it
