I'm having trouble with my company not allowing my personal ISP to email me at work. It means my wife can't email me from her iPhone. Is it possible to use the Verizon Wireless outgoing SMTP servers for my outgoing email?
Hi bginsberg. I know how important it is to keep in touch with your wife. That sounds like a great idea to get around your work firewalls, but Verizon Wireless doesn't have an outgoing SMTP server anymore. http://bit.ly/QgXOOm But many email providers offer a free email account that you can use as an SMTP service if you need. I would suggest to contact your ISP/Email provider for availability of their SMTP email service.

I've replaced my SMTP server with an online alternative. There are heaps to choose from (sendgrid, smtp.com, turbosmtp etc) but I like SMTP2Go for quick sign up and good service. Plus, the free version of the account should be enough for your wife to send messages.
