Outgoing Email problems

I got the new 4S phone, set up email, and am able to receive email fine.  I can send email to others on the same domain name, but when I send it outside the domain, I get an error message "Cannot Send Mail - A copy has been placed in your Outbox.  The receipient "" was rejected by the server."  I'm not on any wifi system, only through verizon.  Any ideas?

Re: Outgoing Email problems

The problem may be with relaying.  If your "from" address in an email is from a different domain than the domain that receives your email (e.g. using to send emails and you have one that is "from" then the server may reject your email; they do that to block spam that uses a server's address.


If you check the settings for the outgoing Mail Server, primary server, be sure to enter the user name and password.  These may be labeled as "optional", but enter them still.
