I have several mail accounts on my sprint EVO (Android 2.2) phone. Gmail, personal cable account all work fine sending and receiving.
My Business e-mail syncs with an Exchange server 2007.  Receiving copies of my e-mail works fine (others people have the same issue, it is not just me) but I cannot send mail.
Incomming I am using POP, no security and it is fine.
Outgoing I have login required, user name and smtp.(domain name), security = none. Authentification fails but it lets me continue.
If I select no login required it continues with no error but sending mail failes wiht "unable to send mail".
Do I need login required and SSL?  How do I make this work?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

if your business email is Exchange, why are you configuring it as POP and SMTP instead of ActiveSync?

Active sync never worked in either direction, do I need a certificate to be installed?

It depends, if your company has a workable Outlook Web Access then ActiveSync should work no problem.  I would lean more towards troubleshooting why ActiveSync isn't working than trying to get POP/SMTP working.

What message are you getting when you try to setup ActiveSync?

So active sync has to be setup on exchange 2007 (I think it is) but this too fails - If I remember it may have been a certificate issue even though I do not require them.
I just tried it now and it keeps saying incorrect user name and password but it only asks for the e-mail address and password which i know are correct.

if your ActiveSync setup on the phone does not ask for a domain name, you will have to type your username as "username@domainname" or "domainname\username".  I would give that a shot.

Actually, I got it working - thank you....
Question - this is new to me (mobile active sync), if I did calendar, will it mix cal events with my personal or will it create a seperate calendar?

the calendar will be exactly as your Outlook calendar is now - and anything you put in phone calendar will populate to Outlook and vice versa.  

I believe Evo supports multiple calendars, so depending on your current phone config, you will now have all appointments in your Exchange/Outlook calendar or you have both your Exchange/Outlook calendar and a personal.
