    Anyone know how to use AT&T as your SMTP server (server address and authentication). Also, if you use authentication, can you pass mail to it when connected to some other ISP via the WiFi connection?

    I recommend you check out this thread on another site:

    http://www.everythingiphone.com/forum/iphone-software/e-mail-issue-3087-2.html

    It provides info on AT&T's outgoing servers. The down side is, they will only work via EDGE, not Wi-Fi (unless you're on AT&T Wi-Fi, or a wireless network connected to AT&T broadband).

    Another option is to try your ISP-provided SMTP server, using your username and password from the ISP. (Also try with no username and password.)

    I currently have this working with the following settings:
    Outgoing server: (my ISP's SMTP server)
    username and password used
    Incoming SSL
    Outgoing SSL

    This works when I am on my home Wi-Fi (via my ISP), and from EDGE, and should therefore work (and be secure) from any network I am on. This is probably the ideal setup.
