ATT Aircard Disasterous with Outlook Express SMTP

By llgllc1 ·
Hey All,

I'm new here, thanks for having me, looks like a great wealth of information and networking possibilities. I would greatly appreciate anyone who can solve my seemingly small, but tremendously irritating problem.

I have an account via secureserver at GoDaddy, to which I ordinarily log-in via my local isp provider. Being unemployed, my cable has been offed, and I am left to the devices of my AT&T Aircard.

Now, I cannot for the life of me get the correct settings for my outgoing mail server. I have an IMAP account and cannot locate an answer to my query anywhere. When I seek the isp I am connecting to via my 3G Watcher, I see that it is ISP.CINGULAR, but none of the cingular SMTP settings out there that I've found seem to work.

1000 Internets to anyone who can help this tech-inept solve his problem. Thanks.

You really need to look at the ISP's Web Site

That supports this Air Card for their settings. Or speak to them direct.

You may need to establish a Mail Account with them first before this service works.

Unfortunately here only they can be of assistance to you.

A couple of things to try:

First of all, can you ping the outbound (SMTP) mail server and the incoming mail server (POP) by either name or IP address?

The most common mistake is that the outbound server requires authentication, and your pop client is not giving it the correct id/password, or the correct type of response.

What email client are you using?

Remember that your outbound and your inbound can be different. Thus you can use AT&Ts SMTP server for sending email and use godaddy POP for getting email. It's just mail.

Email Client

I'm using,as my email is hosted through GoDaddy. But it's an IMAP account, which as far as I can tell means it syncs up my webmail, Outlook and blackberry, such that any email sent from one will show up in the sent folder of another.

Because of this, can I use POP3? Or am I misunderstanding the question?

When you set up the account in Outlook

choose IMAP.

You may need to create a new account, rather than adjust settings.
