Help Email Via Wifi


Android Enthusiast
Aug 29, 2010
I got my email setup (finally!) & can now send & receive on both my POP3 addresses.

When I'm at home I normally switch on wifi so I'm using my Broadband allowance rather than my mobile contract data allowance.

However if I do this I can receive email but not send.

My mobile contract is with Orange & my broadband is with Sky.

Is the basic reason cos I'm not connected through Sky servers so it won't allow me to send?

The interesting thing is that I just traded in my Blackberry for the Desire & that would allow me to send & receive even though I have the same setup.

The BB had "UMA Technology" whatever that means.

Any thoughts? :thinking:
