So I'm nearly at my wits end.
I am trying to set up my email on my ipad. My email address is telus.net
I can receive emails no problem but can't seem to get the outgoing server correct.
After hours of google searching the only answer I can find is to go:
for the host name, and to leave the user and password fields blank.
I've tried everything from mail.telus.net -> smtp.telus.net
and then putting in my username and password and also doing my full email address and password.
Emails still won't send. Has anyone had this problem, and what was your fix? I am on my home network, which is an eastlink service. I have tried to use the smtp.eastlink.ca outgoing server with no avail
The error that comes up when trying to send an email using smtp.telus.net is ---
" The recipient "%@" was rejected by the server because the user is unknown. "
This happens regardless who I try and send an email to.

You can thank the spammers and spoofers for creating this mess... and the ISPs for locking everything down to try to prevent the spammers and spoofers from doing their deeds on the ISPs servers.
I have multiple email addresses configured on my iOS devices - one that always works is a gmail.com address. Another one is my personal web domain which is hosted by GoDaddy. GoDaddy is unique in that they offer "relays" that you can use to connect to their SMTP server through any ISP and authenticate and send email. I am not sure what your ISP offers in the way of relays or similar. Maybe their website or their tech support can help you get it sorted out... it's one of those things that makes you crazy... and each ISP has their own way of dealing with spam, spoof and authentication.Curmudgeon and Former Member/Participant
