Having problem setting up email on my nexus 7

  mickyrod 28 Feb 13

58 year old guy needs help in setting up my nexus!

I have a supanet account and I am trying to set up email on my new nexus. I can put in the incoming mail info ok. But when I put in the outgoing info I get this message "Couldn't open connection to server"

Help please!!!!!

thanks muddypaws. I have a feeling it might have something to do with the smtp port. On my PC i have it set at 25 and it all works ok. However if I try to put 25 in on the nexus it says Authentication methods aren't supported by server!

I am totaly out of ideas.

I have spent the last three hours going round in circles and still have no email.

Pending a solution I have put Tiscali web mail into my favoutites and work from that, but am using gmail more since I got the N7

Have you tried Port 587 for smtp, it seems to be an alternative from some other threads that I have read.

mickyrod - is your broadband with supanet as well? If not who is your broadband with?

I had a similar problem with a Kyros android tablet and g mail. It was solved by putting an 'm' in place of the smtp i.e m.google.com for the server address inG mail. It may be worth trying something similar for supanet
