Send .Mac email from a Windows Mobile smartphone Phones
I've always been able to check my .Mac email on my smartphone using the IMAP4 server mail.mac.com, but sending had never worked: smtp.mac.com either rejected all mail recipients when authentication wasn't used, or rejected my login when it was.

It turns out that the solution is simple: in the account set-up, you need to ensure that 'Outgoing server requires authentication' is activated, and in 'Outgoing server settings' you need to select 'Use different user name for outgoing server' and re-enter the exact same details as for the incoming server (making sure you don't included the '@mac.com' on your account name).

kirkmc adds: I haven't tested this.

Send .Mac email from a Windows Mobile smartphone

Windows Mobile 5 has the option to automatically get all the correct settings based on your email address and password. That's how I set up my .Mac account on my Q.

Both Windows Mobile 5 and 6 have automatic setup for .Mac mail, and while in going mail works, the outgoing never did. I didn't even realize this until i checked the outbox in my .mac account on my phone one day.

This hint worked perfectly on my DASH and on my friends Q.
Now we can send outgoing mail.

Just an update on this, since I've now upgraded. Exactly the same problems exists in Windoze Mobile 6, so the solution is exactly the same!

Hint is the way to go with the AT&T Tilt/HTC Tytn II/Kaiser device as well.
