Optus Email on Telstra Samsung Phone

Hi,

 

I have a Telstra Samsung Android Galaxy 9 on Telstra network and Optus NBN at home

 

To send and receive Optus email at home, its fine on the phone.  When I am on Telstra nwtowrk, I can receive  but not sent.

 

I know Telstra blocks port 25 for Optus email.  Is there another solution that works in BOTH places, so I dont have to re-do the Outgoing email server settings, as its very annoying each time.

 

Thanks

I tested using authentication on the outgoing mail server not so long ago and it worked for me using my Telstra connection.

Re: Optus Email on Telstra Samsung Phone

I was always told that it's the outgoing mail server settings that need to match Telstra's outgoing mail server settings.

Incoming should remain as Optus. 

 

POP3 Incoming sever settings: 

 

  • Host Name: mail.optusnet.com.au
  • Username: Your email @OPTUSNET.com.au
  • Password: Your Optus net email password. 
  • Server port: 110 or  Server port: 25

 

IMAP - Incoming mail server settings:

 

  • Host Name: mail.optusnet.com.au
  • Username: Your email @OPTUSNET.com.au
  • Password: Your Optus net email password.
  • Server port: 143 (no SSL)
  • Server port: 993 (with SSL)

 

Telstra outgoing server settings:

 

  • Outgoing server address: smtp.telstra.com.
  • Outgoing server port: 465 (recommended) or 587.
  • SMTP authentication: On.

Re: Optus Email on Telstra Samsung Phone

You would most likely have the problem in reverse when trying to send mail connected to Optus using Telstra outgoing mail server.
