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.

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

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
