Default Verizon Broadband and Outlook

Anybody have any experience with the broadband computer cards. I am trying
to get my email setup with using Verizon Wireless. Roadrunner will not let
me send email via their SMTP server so I am trying to get SMTP.vzwmail.net
to work. So far they can not get my password to allow me access even though
I am talking to the correct people I think. I just want to be able to send
and receive email using either Outlook or Outlook express. Is there another
program that would work better together?
Thanks for any help

I use multiple SMTP servers all the time, via a VZW connection,
so it isn't VZW blocking you.

It is quite probably somewhere in your configuration of the accounts.

Using Outlook, right? (others will be similar)

What port are you using? (25 or 587)? (Under advanced tab)

On the outgoing server tab, My outgoing server (SMTP) requires
authentication needs to be checked.

Click log on using and then fill in your user/password.
Be sure to check the remember password also.

Services like gmail require that you enable SMTP before you can use it.
Could Roadrunner require this step also? Check their website.

Bottom line, with a bit of tweaking, it should work just fine.

Tried it this morning. Nothing doing, it would not let me send any email. It
does however allow it to log onto the email server according to Outlook but
doesn't accept the "verizon" password like it should. Puzzled
They "Verizon" people keep playing with it and then tell me to wait another
24 hours. The problem is that I can see, is that pretty soon my 15 day trial
will be gone and I still will not be able to send email from on the road and
be stuck with this card and $60 a month for next two years. Now I think I
would be able to do through a web site mail but have not tried this.

Outlook 2003 and smtp.vzwmail.net have always worked fine for me.

What you describe sounds like a purely authentication problem.

Roadrunner=AOL so they are a home type ISP. I have never known them to
have authenticated SMTP.

Unfortunately roadrunner=aol and I have never heard of them offering
authenticated SMTP so I would agree on not going down that road.

I use my mail server but I have set it access via VZWs SMTP for others
and it does work. Have you experimented with the few permutations
involving SMTP authentication in Outlook such as "use same settings" or
"log on using and enter the credentials in the 2 boxes? Have you double
checked everything to make sure you didn't "fat finger" some entry?

This doesn't really help the original poster, but FWIW, AOL's mail, while
once 100% proprietary, since mid-2003 can now be accessed as plain ol'
IMAP/SMTP which DOES use authentication. It also allows access from
other servers, so I can send from my AOL account using the smtp.aol.com
server from my phone, and not a carrier-specific SMTP-setting.

Whether or not AOL mail is in any way related to RoadRunner's mail
system, I can't tell you, but my guess is that whatever SMTP settings
work at home when connected to RoadRunner should also work through Verizon.

If not, the problem is RoadRunner blocking use of it's SMTP server by
people not connected to RR. Authenticated SMTP usually solves that.

Instead of use same settings, I had to qualify it (ie name@domain.sufix )
for it to work. Not sure if it required for the card or not, but I do it by
default on my aircard, and it works. (best I can figger is that if you have
someone else's software installed, it will always try to force their domain
name in, unless you override it and specify it explicitly).. Also works fine
when using WiFI (same thing, domain defaults to whatever the hotspot is
using, for those just fully qualify it too)

Just got off the phone and Roadrunner will not let any mail be sent from
their smtp server unless you are on their system. So I come back to Verizon
in trying to get their system to work. Tried all different configurations
and still nothing. Verizon just simply will not accept the password they
setup for me. "verizon"

Not sure what you mean.. I put username in as both the name and domain (ie
10 digit phone number@vzw3g.com password = vzw ) Why are you using the
password verizon?

Today it actually works. Yesterday I spoke with a lady at tier 3 support and
she assured me that after 48 hours it would work and she was correct. Why it
takes 48 hours for the Verizon computer system to have a phone number be
attached to a password, who knows but it does. Thanks for all the
suggestions
