    Sending email via oulook using pearl as a modem

    Advertisement



    I have succesfully set up my BB pearl 8100 as a modem for my laptop. I have been through 5 customer service tech's at TMO and BB. NO one seems to know what the outgoing e-mail address is. I use microsoft outlook on my laptop. If i need to e-mail a file, I should be able to attach my BB to my laptop as a modem, connect to the internet, create an e-mail in outlook, attach a file and send.....Right? Wrong..... I recieve an e-mail from system admin telling me "no transport provider was available for delivery to this recipient". I think all I need is the outgoing e-mail SMTP address for t-mobile or Blackberry. And by the way, mymail.t-mobile.com does not work. Thanks in advance!!!!

    WOW......I have checked out another Blackberry forum and someone asked this very same question back on July 23rd 2007. No one responded with an answer. I guess it's impossible. I hope not.
    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is no need to use any special email address if you are tethered and on the internet your outlook will work just as if you are connected anywhere else. Just use your regular account and you should be fine. If you added any accounts to outlook delete them.

    Re: Sending email via oulook using pearl as a modem

    Maybe I didnt explain well. I can recieve all the e-mails I want, but without the correct outgoing SMTP server address, you cannot send e-mail. I deal with this even in hotels when I am hooked up to their internet provider, I have to call down to the front desk and ask what their outgoing mail address is. my current is "SMTP-server.houston.rr.com" if i were using an SBC Global connection it would be "mail.sbcglobal.net" I hope this clears up my question. Thanks

    ahh....roadrunner...my condolences....

    Just kidding. However I use verizon and make NO adjustments to ANY email settings when tethered, which may be why you are having such difficulties finding an answer to your issue from RIM or TMO...you may want to set up an alternative email account with someone like gmail for use on the road.

    use this:

    cwmx.com

    as the outgoing server, it's att's mail relay but should work for your purposes. t-mo should have their own address to provide for you as well. no authentication or ssl.

    Thanks steva11. but it did not work, I spoke with a co worker today that uses sprint, and no one can figure it out for him either. It seems Blackberry does not even know their own outgoing e-mail server address. I am bummed, this really should be a simple question. Maybe it's the 8th wonder of the world???

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ its possible but unfortunately, won't be on my pc until tomorrow. Let me clarify, you want to receive and send your tmo.blackberry email account using outlook right?

    Re: Sending email via oulook using pearl as a modem

    Yes, I already recieve and send on my BB. I am useing my BB on the road as a modem, when i need to send an e-mail that requires an attachment, I want to hook up to my BB from my laptop (already successful) open outlook, and send an e-mail. All I need is the outgoing e-mail carrier's address. It is unique to all ISP's. i would think it would be TMO.blackbeery.net, but I am pretty sure I tried that one, sometimes "mail" or "server" is in the address line, but if you dont have it perfect, it will not work. Thanks for any help, Blackberry cant even figure it out or they do not understand the question. I hope I am clear on what I am needing.
