Troubleshooting outgoing SMTP on Galaxy Tab

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have trouble with my boss's Galaxy Tab regarding outgoing mail.
The Tab is running latest firmware and have about 8 email accounts setup, the default account is an Exchange account (that works), and 7 POP3 accounts. Of the 7 POP accounts, one of them have problems sending emails out.

The user just get's a "Connection Error" and nothing more useful. I know the servername is correct (tested on PC), and I have tried both with standard port 25 without SSL/TLS, and also with SSL and TLS on port 465 and port 587.
I also tried SMTP without SSL/TLS on port 587, but no luck. Authentication is of course enabled. The account is also setup on a Outlook 2010 client with TLS on port 587 and works perfect there. The user is connected to his home network, and the ISP is not blocking outgoing SMTP connections.

Is there any way to troubleshoot the Tab? A general error message is not very helpful, i would love to see something more if thats possible.
