    I recently jailbreaked my touch using the jailbreakme.com method, and then installed all the iphone apps using repo.us.to

    I've also properly set up my GMail account (from the Google help pages) and everything works well except sending mail (?). I can check my incoming messages just fine, save drafts and have that be reflected on the actual gmail server, but for some reason sending messages from the touch just will not work. It tells me to check the outgoing server settings, but I did, and it's properly set up for smtp.gmail.com and server 587.

    Anyone else have this problem, or have an idea what I can do to fix this?

    I think u should sign up izymail.com, this allow u to use POP real easy then it should work

    The thing is I'm using Gmail's new IMAP, not POP.

    Are you using GMail as POP3 or IMAP? If the former, I suggest switching to IMAP, as it's more GMail like.

    Anyways, on to your question, are you connecting from a school or work network? On my school's network, I can't load email, nor can I send (ports, I presume being the trouble)

    If it really pains you, send from gmail.com itself.

    I'm currently using the IMAP feature. I'm connected on my home wireless, and I just noticed the sending mail feature wasn't working once I tried it out.

    I've used the Mail app in other places though, and like I said, everything else seems to be working fine. I just want to get to the bottom of this, as it would be really helpful if I could reply to my emails in class without using a computer.

    Check you firewall settings, or any programs like PeerGuardian if you have them. They could very well be blocking the parts of your connection you need to send mail. On my computer, PeerGuardian was blocking Mail.app even from connecting to setup my account. Uninstalled PG, and now it works like a charm.

    Nope, I don't have anything like PeerGuardian on my Mac. As for my firewall settings, I haven't really set it up, but this is how it looks:


    My router doesn't seem to be blocking anything either.

    Have you logged into your gmail via a computer and made the necessary changes to your account settings on your Gmail account?

    You mean enabling IMAP inside the Gmail settings? Yup, I've done that already.

    Do you think if I just uninstall the mail app, and re-install it, it would somehow fix things? Or is this clearly something wrong with my preferences or whatnot?
