well, i was just configuring the email client on my wife's new verizon ipad2, and when i went to the verizon website, to find the address of their SMTP server, i learned that verizon wireless doesn't offer an SMTP server anymore. they discontinued it... it turns out that my isp - optonline - will allow mail from a device on the verizon network to go out over their SMTP server, but not all isps' will allow that. if you are buying a verizon ipad, and want to use the ipad email client, you might want to check into this. only other option would be webmail, or third-party SMTP service. i have an att iphone, and send all my email from that device over the att SMTP server.
