    I have a motorola hint phone and am unable to send email through my embarq email account. I can receive email, but can't send it. When I used another email account (my business account) I was able to send email through that one, but not through the embarq account.

    Yes, I do have smtp enabled. I have everything exactly like my son does on his phone (different phone though) and it still won't send anything. Just says "connection failure".

    Try changing the port number for sending email form 25 to 587. Can you send email now?
