    Sometimes ISP's require you to use their SMTP severs to send e-mail's.

    Whoa whoa Gmail is the best dude....

    Heres what to do. 1.1.3 Changed the way Gmail works on the Ipod touch so go into settings-mail and delete your gmail account (on the ipod) then recreate it and you dont have to enter smtp etc just your username/password and it works 100% flawlessly

    I've done that, still have problems. Yahoo! was just as simple setup as GMail, but GMail isn't working. Yahoo! works fine, so I use that email, no problem on my end :)
