We have Telus email and we use it (pop) on our cell phone and our laptop with outlook. Everytime we go abroad, and are on hotel wifi, we cannot send emails anymore. We HAVE to login to telus Webmail (which is hell, excuse my language). I tried using different ports, on both, but nothing worked. Our only option was Webmail. In the end we decided to use our gmail for some correspondence just to avoid the hassle of webmail. We had it tested in a coffee shop here in Calgary and it worked. But not outside Canada, and it is not the first time. What are we doing wrong?
Hey @Jetje, if you're trying to send email via SMTP from a non-TELUS internet connection, you will need to enable SMTP authentication in order for it to work. Here are some instructions on how to ensure that your phone's settings are correct for this situation.
Thanks Dan, I just looked in my server settings and that "require authentication to send emails' is actually on. On both my (telus)email addresses. We fiddled around, also with the security type, quite a lot. It may or may not have worked but I am back now, and can't try it anymore. So eventually it looks like I did something wrong. But I am not savvy enough, and I think it is time to move away from telus emails anyways for a less complicated life :-). But still glad I asked it here, now knowing it is my problem.
