I'm on wifi - the thing is, I'm receiving emails OK, but when I try to send it says there's connection error.

 

I'm not very tech savvy, so I'm finding this really hard (and I'm not a guy either). 

 

 


OK - there's your problem if you want to send emails via wifi then you need to open an o2 email account (free) and follow the settings below:

 

If you require emails to be sent with 3g and wifi then you need to have an o2 email account and use these settings:

 

USERNAME: you@demon.co.uk

PASSWORD: your password

 

POP SERVER mail.demon.co.uk

SECURITY: none

SERVER PORT: 110

 

USERNAME: you@o2.co.uk

PASSWORD: your password

 

SMTP SERVER: smtp.o2.co.uk

SECURITY: yes

SERVER PORT: 25

 

Hope this helps

Thank you, that is really helpful. I'll let you know if it works.

 

Can I just ask one more question - how do I open an 02 account? I've been with demon all my internet life and the rest is a mystery.

 

Cheers, walkout

Edit your email settings to the following...

POP3 settings (Incoming email)

Username: Primary email address
Password: Email account password
Server: mail.demon.co.uk
Port: 110 or 995
Encryption Type: STARTTLS or SSL
Authentication: Normal Password

IMAP settings (Incoming email)

Username: Primary email address
Password: Email account password
Server: mail.demon.co.uk
Port: 143 or 993
Encryption Type: STARTTLS or SSL
Authentication: Normal Password

SMTP settings (Outgoing email)

Username: Primary email address
Password: Email account password
Server: smtp.demon.co.uk
Port: 25 or 587
Encryption Type: STARTTLS or SSL
Authentication: Normal Password

If you've done this and it's still not working, then go into the SMTP settings, (outgoing mail), and make sure that the host name is correct, and active and also that you have selected any option to use your authentication data. If it doesn't give you the option to use the same details for sending mail that you do to receive mail, then you will need to manually add your username/password combination, after which you should be able to send emails.

I have a Samsung as well and the settings from lanh look like the ones I use (although mine are set-up for hotmail and gmail). I do not see any reason for you to have to set up an O2 account, those settings should do the job without anything like that.

One problem I did have was that my phone tried to download all of the (many) emails that were sitting in my hotmail inbox when I set up the account on my phone - not good! I set up a gmail account to use on my phone and have my mail diverted there from hotmail, that way I only get the new messages without having to delete the emails from hotmail but still have the hotmail account to use as before.
Sorry, I haven't been quite the same since that house fell on my sister.

Not working yet, but I'm not sure what you mean by normal password. What password is this?

Walkout, I mean the password to your email account.

So, if the username/password combination you use to retrieve your incoming mail is someone@demon.co.uk/password, you would enter those details in both the incoming and the outgoing settings, (making sure both are activated and that authentication for the SMTP server was switched on if there is an option to do so - if there's no option, then simply entering the details will switch it on automatically).
Cheers,
