Both of my parents have SII's, and I'm trying to set up hosted email through their web hosting service, host gator. The email accounts themselves work fine, I have them set up on email clients on desktops and the send and receive normally.
Both phones refuse to establish connections for the default email client on the SII, they won't log in at all. So I downloaded and used K-9 Mail.
K-9 Mail will RECEIVE mail normally (on both phones), but it cannot establish a connection on the outbound in order to send a mail. I've checked the network sync settings, re-checked passwords, security types, several times.
Now, I have an EVO 4G myself and I use K-9. I configured their hostgator emails on my phone through K-9 with the exact same settings and everything works fine, sending and receiving emails normally.
What else should I be checking here? This issue is consistent across two different SII's ... however, I have no problems with my EVO 4G.
Any help would be fantastic. Thanks!
UPDATE: After playing around with the settings, I figured out I was using the wrong port despite the instructions I was given by our hosting provider. I apologize for wasting anyone's time. Live long and prosper.
