    Hi

    I've looked but I cant find one...

    I'd love to have an app that looks at your data connection and automatically sets an outgoing mail server.

    For example, I'm in my office connected to the company wi-fi and I have just received an email to my private mail on my pre. The mail account is set up to use the talktalk mail server, but as I'm on company wi-fi the send fails.

    It would be great to have something that sets the outgoing mail server based on wi-fi SID, and of course if no wi-fi a different server;

    EG;

    HomeWifiSID = talktalk.net
    CompanyWiFi = mail.mycomapny.com
    No Wifi = o2.co.uk

    Thanks,

    Rob

    That does sound like a good idea, would require a small patch to the existing e-mail program. I wonder how we'd do it? Maybe just try all 3 (user configurable) send servers until one finds success.

    Or have your network admin unblock talktalk or disconnect from company wifi to send personal email?

    hmm so try maybe switching the outgoing mail server for the talktalk account on the phone to o2 or your company mail server.

    Until / if someone creates a patch to solve the issues. Could hound talktalk as well if they are blocking your company.

    I guess an easy patch would be to flag email accounts to send only via data connection instead of wifi.

    talktalk are not blocking my company. Its standard in the uk for isps to only allow the use of their mail servers when connected to their networks, which im not unless im at home.

    yes a flag to use data only would work.

    i know how to solve the problem, an app would be better
