[icon-discuss] Re: using my default email address with the braille plus

Hi Jenny:

I just tried putting in the smtp server address with the port number and got an 
error 
message to the effect that there's no address associated with the host.

When I set up the account on the PC, There's a prompt where you have to 
indicate if the 
server requires authentication, but it appears to be for both outgoing and 
incoming mail. It 
doesn't seem to specify that it's just for the outgoing mail server. BTW, when 
I use the 
Sprint outgoing server address, I don't have to put in port numbers either. The 
Sprint 
address is associated with the wireless card that I sometimes use on my PC.
