Can't use SMTP with an iPad; Bell says not supported :(

I can't get the same settings that work with my Outlook to work with my iPad and I also tried what I found here - »Bell Canada Internet FAQ

I tried smtphm.sympatico.ca with two different suggested ports, with SSL, with outgoing password, I can't get my SMTP outgoing to work. It's either immediately denying me or it's sticking at Veryfying...

Is there anyone here who's obtaining their email with their iPad?

Thank you in advance!

You can also just setup as a Hotmail account. It works perfectly and can push not just fetch email. Simply choose Hotmail as the account type and enter your bell.net or sympatico.ca address then password and it should setup for you. It will even give you the option of calendar and contacts....

Just an option. Hope it helps!

Try using IMAP instead of POP.

I have my account on ehosting.ca working. The only problem I had was making sure that I selected POP instead of IMAP and accept the certificate violation. I'm using SSL and I had to specify the port at eHosting.

I didn't try to use the Bell SMTP.

If it's SMTP you need (ie -> being able to *send* mail) then try this:

67.69.240.69

Port 25, no authentication, no SSL.

Been working for me for quite a while.

It's aliased to these host-names:

relais.bellnexxia.net
relay.bellnexxia.net
smtp.bellnet.ca
smtp.bellnexxia.net
smtp1.bellnexxia.net
smtp2.bellnexxia.net
smtp3.bellnexxia.net
smtp10.bellnet.ca
smtp10.on.aibn.com
smtp10.on.aira.com

For which email address are you trying to get it to work?

If it's not a Bell address (like @sympathico or so), try to see if you can use the smtp server of the (email) hosting with an alternative port (so: other then 25).

A lot of hosting providers support port 587 nowadays.

Yup. Host Name is pophm.sympatico.ca. User name is e-mail address.Password is account password. I'm using smtphm.sympatico.ca for outgoing mail. SSL is on. Authentication password is set to Password. Server port is 995.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I couldn't get any of them to work and then I realized that Hotmail was hosting Sympatico's emails so I chose that option and it worked perfectly.

I couldn't get 67.69.240.69, it wasn't accessible to me.

I couldn't use imap, I didn't see the option.

Glad my suggestion worked... it is the easiest way to get Bell mail going on any IOS device.
Cheers!

Keep in mind these servers have access lists preventing anyone but bell internet/bell mobility customers from using them. They are also the business internet smtp servers.
