Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

[ Edited ]

I can receive emails on both devices.

Neither will send an email .

I have checked the settings following your guidance online and followed it till I am blue in the face but both devices produce messages saying that " couldn't connect to server (javax.net.ssl.SSLProtocolException:smileyfrustrated:SL handshake aborted - error 140770FC:smileyfrustrated:SL routines etc.

Is your webpage on this subject accurate?

Any advice please?

 

By the way I didn't put those stupid emoticons in my text - they have appeared where I put two upper case letter S

sending large emails

If I try to forward a video on email it refuses saying it cannot send larger than 15000k - is there a way to do it ?

Hi, 

 

there is a limit to the size of an email, but you can use something such as Sky drive or Google drive.

 

You can upload the content to sky drive, You can then send a link via email to the content you want to share. 

 

I use this method for all my large files.

 

Thanks

Yes, as I said in my original post I have followed the online guidance ( as given in your link).

Just tried it again to see if any joy. I am getting the same "couldn't finish " message followed by a very long description of the protocol exception.

In case it might be router issue, I have tried on wifi and on data connection and get the same refusal to connect.

Incoming emails can be received with no problem.

This is very frustrating.

PS the blank post from me above was sent with text from my tablet - so some sort of connection is being made.

Hi Tony Walls,

 

it seems a few people had problems setting up mail on the Nexus 7 the PC ADVISOR FORUM has some suggestions that seem to have worked.

Re: Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

Thanks for replying but I am no further forward. Some of the threads from your link assume that the Nexus has a 2G or 3G connection - mine is wifi only.

I would reiterate that this problem exists on my phone and on my tablet.

The set up for outgoing emails on both devices finishes with " validating smtp settings "   then   "can't safely connect to server" then  "couldn't open connection to server "  and a very large error message. Given that both devices are producing the same outcome it seems reasonable to assume that the advertised settings are somewhat unreliable.

I am reluctant to go through the strife of changing ISP but this together with BT's free football are pushing me in that direction.

Hi Tony Walls

 

Do you have an @talktalk.net email address?

 

What outgoing mail setting are you currently using? (please don't post any personal information)

Re: Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

Chris , yes I have a TT.net account.

I have been trying to use the settings exactly as in the online guide  - port 587 etc.

The settings sometimes default to security type "none" and ports 25 or 465 without any input from me.

Re: Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

Are you only sending while connected to your TalkTalk router or do you also connect to other networks?

Chris , through TT router or via data link through TT ( including the tablet which is occasionally tethered to the android phone)

Re: Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

Hi Tony,

 

I take it you can send via Webmail?

 

If you can please send me the email address/es you are trying from and the make and model of the devices along with the full error messages via Private Message.

 

If possible please also provide times and dates when you tried to send.

Ady

        just tried Gmail for the first time ( don't use it generally) it works.

 My phone is a ZTE Blade 3 and as per the subject of my post I use a Nexus 7 .

If I try to send an email via TT , I get " Authentication methods aren't supported by server".

I have already given some information about the error code that I get when trying to enter the settings for outgoing TT emails.

Here is the full error information which arises when I use the TT guide

 

couldn't finish

can't safely connect to server

(javax.net.ssl. SSLProtocolException:smileyfrustrated:SL handshake aborted:smileyindifferent:sl=0x12b2728:Failure in SSL library, usually a protocol error

error : 1408F10B:smileyfrustrated:SL routines:

SSL3-GET-Record: wrong version number(external/openssl/ssl/s3-pktc:3450x401b7cf5:0x00000000)

 

I have no record of my attempts to send emails. Most of the trials have been emails to myself to see if I can get a working service.

Thanks

  PS again - I see that I am getting emoticons sometimes when I enter " SS "  !!!!!!! - so there is a letter "s" replaced by an emoticon which I have not selected.

Hi Tony,

 

sorry I wasn't clear in what I was asking.

 

Have you been able to send mail using TalkTalk webmail?

Ady , I take it that you are meaning the AOL powered TT product.

In which case the answer is no I don't use it.

Thanks

Re: Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

Hi Tony,

 

Thanks for the update

 

Could you try webmail and let us know how you get on.

 

Could you also list the outgoing server setting that you have set on your phone and Nexus 7

 

Thanks

Re: Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

OK I tried webmail . That doesn't work.

Looked online and found this advice

"Email provided by ISPs such as TalkTalk and Virgin Media may stop you sending emails when you're not connected to the internet through your home broadband connection."

If that is correct , and why should it be , it's a poor state of affairs and in any case I can't connect even when I'm connected at home.

Re: Sending Emails from Android Phone and Nexus 7

Hi Tony,

 

that information is correct, however, if you can't send in Webmail that isn't your issue.

 

If you can't send in webmail there is a problem with your mail account itself and I need to raise a fault ticket for you.

 

To do that I need you to send me a private message containing your email address and password that you're having problems with. Please do not post this on the forum.
