Does anyone have an Ipaq HX4700?

If so, have you worked out how to get Outlook to authenticate you to your outbound (smtp) server?

I can't do it, and there's no help on the HP site - apart from the news that there's an upgrade pack going to become available for the mobile Windows version 2003 that's installed - but not until spring of 2006.

I have an Ipaq 2210, I would have thought it would be the same to set up email.

On my 2210 I do it this way.-

Open Inbox.
New Account.

You then enter your email address etc.
Enter what you can in each box and click next.

In the last box you can enter any settings (including SMTP)that it didn't find.

Hope this helps.

I know how to set up email accounts - that's not the problem.

I have my own business domain name, and I collect POP3 email from my mailbox on my own server - that's no problem. My ISP is BT however, and they have fairly recently introduced a requirement that all outbound (smtp) mail is authenticated on the server. That's absolutely no problem with Outlook on a PC - you simply tell Outlook that you have a different username/password for outbound mail to the one that you use for inbound mail.

The mobile Windows 2003 version also has an option to select smtp authentication, as you say, but there's no way to enter a different login - Windows assumes that it should use the same login that you set for your POP3 inbound mail.
