    Hi

    Got my 6600 connecting via GPRS to net fine now, but can't get access to
    Email. I've created a Vodafone Mail account and I think I've got the
    properties right... Can anyone help setting up email account on 6600. Or
    offer another free mail server that I can use from this phone.

    Settings

    Access Point : Vodafone WAP (works ok for net connect)
    Email Addr : my vodafone email addr
    Outgoing server: smtp.vodafone.net
    User Name : my vodafone mail user id
    Password: correct vodafone mail password
    Incomming Server : pop.vodafone.net
    Mailbox type : POP3
    Security : Off
    APOP Secure : Off


    Many thanks
    Martin

    the Vodafone WAP access point won't work, that is only a WAP access
    point. You need to create a full access point. To do this, follow
    this:

    1. Go to Tools, Settings, Connection, Access Points
    2. Press Options, select New access point, Use existing settings
    3. Select Vodafone WAP in the list.
    4. Change the Connection name to: Vodafone Internet
    5. Change the Access point name to: internet
    6. Change the User name to: web
    7. Change the Password to: web

    Leave all other settings the same. Now go to your email settings, and
    set it to use the "Vodafone Internet" Access point, and you should be
    away. Oh one more piece of advice, set the Outgoing server to
    212.183.156.230

    All the Best,

    Mario

    Firstly make sure you are using the web GPRS and not the WAP GPRS as the WAP
    GPRS will not work with emails using the popular protocols (SMTP,POP,IMAP).

    The outgoing server means the computer that the emails you are sending go to
    before they get delivered to the recipient, ie. If I send an email to
    [email protected] it first goes to the outgoing mail server (in my case
    smtpauth.dsl.pipex.com). Your phone needs the address for this mail server
    as otherwise it will have nowhere to send it. Based on your email address I
    assume you are trying to check a freeserve email account? If this is the
    case then you will need to find out from freeserve what your outgoing mail
    server (commonly referred to as SMTP server) is called. It is also possible
    that your email is web based only and you can only access your account using
    a web page.
    Post the name of your email provider and method of accessing it (DO NOT
    INCLUDE usernames/passwords) and I/someone else might be able to help.

    It is best practice to use the name of the outgoing server and not the IP,
    the reason being that if the IP of the mail server changes you will no
    longer be able to send emails.

    You have to use the SMTP server for whichever network you're on. So
    for instance on O2, you use smtp.o2.co.uk, and for vodafone you use
    212.183.156.230

    If they are the settings that you use on your pc then, unless there's a
    fault with the phone, it must be your gprs setup.
    Here are my settings for the same phone and network that I have used with
    pop,imap and smtp protocols.

    Connection name: Internet
    Data bearer: GPRS
    Access Point Name: Internet
    Username: web
    Prompt password: no
    Password: web
    Authentication: Normal
    Homepage: http://wap:1999/vodafone.wml

    Advanced Settings:
    Phone IP Address: Automatic
    Prim. and sec. name servers 0.0.0.0
    Proxy server address: 212.183.137.012
    Proxy Port number: 8799

    You could also try and connect to an alternate mail server to make sure your
    isp is somehow blocking access from the vodafone connection.

    Another thing to check is that you can send/receive email with your ISP's
    servers when you are not connected via their network, ie. do you need to
    dial into freeserve in order to access your freeserver email or can you do
    it from a friends pc on, say, demon?
    I have to use an authenticating smtp server in order to send emails when not
    connected to my own ISP although I can use POP/IMAP from any connection.

    If this still doesn't work then give vodafone a call and make sure you have
    the right bits enabled at their end to enable web gprs as well as wap gprs.

    Good luck
