I'm trying to take advantage of Gmail's external smtp service. No matter what I try I get errors. Sometimes it says I have the wrong password other times I don't get an explanation of the error. I know my password is correct.

Settings:

smtpauth.earthlink.net
username@earthlink.net
password
port 587 (or 25)
encryption none (or ssl, or tls)

The settings do not matter. It seems the Pre will not send mail out of another smtp server if your incoming imap is set to gmail's servers.
