Currently I have a shared hosting account, and my domain name has a few emails, a few i use webmaiil only and one use with my iPod Touch, I get this error: Cannot Send Mail "The connection to the outgoing server "mail.catchthem.com" failed." the thing is as of today, (yesterday seemed to be working fine) i cannot send ANY email to outside addresses, they just sit in a temp folder called Outbox. However if i send ANY emails to email accounts within my domain they work. (btw i can receive email to the account fine for some reason) Ive tried resetting it (iPod) -different wireless network -different ipodtouch with different email account to no avail. I havent changed any of the mail settings or ipod settings for that matter. I can send/receive email via my web interface for all my accounts and including the one for the iPod. the settings i have in the iPod touch as this: ============ Name: Catch Them Address: firstname.lastname@example.org (alias to actual domain to protect privacy) Descript: email@example.com Incoming Mail Server Host Name: mail.catchthem.com Username: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: ******* Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) Host Name: mail.catchthem.com:465 (it automatically put the :465) Username: _blank_ Password: _blank_ ========== and it was working fine for the past 2 months i had it originally set up, and with trying a friends iPhone & iPod touch and a different email address (from my domain), produces the same scenario; cant send to outside emails only to ones "@catchthem.com" so im wondering if its an SMTP error on my end/shared hosting spot. also i have a .MAC & GMail account on this ipod and they both send/receive fine. and i can send/receive email from my own domain via the webmail features of cPanel (SquirrelMail & Roundcube), but not via the Touch. I have since contacted the hosting company, and they do report im getting the same error each time trying to send out mail, due to not authenticating the SMTP? but even when i did that still said "cannot send"....the thing is they were blank since setting up the mail on this ipod touch. hm........... thanks!
