At various times over the last few months I have hunted for this answer but have given up for the vast numbers of similar issues out there. The answer to this question is NOT to do everything from gmail like most of the answers I have found!
I have never been able to send mail on my Android. When connected to the wi-fi it is ok because my ISP accepts it but it fails when out of the house. I currently receive my main emails using IMAP with Outlook being the main client. As I don't use gmail all that often, mail is forwarded from the account to my main account so it only leaves me with the sending when out of the house issue.
I have been given an outgoing address by my ISP but it doesn't work. I have tried using gmail's smtp server with a view that if anyone responds it should be forwarded to my main account but of the settings I have found, my phone says that it fails.
There must be people out there that receive "normal" mail on their phones and send using the gmail accounts? If so, what settings should I be using because nothing seems to work so far!
