Hello,

I'm trying to configure Remote Notification to send a message to my SprintPCS cell phone. I use AOL as my email service. Could you tell me how to set this up? I keep getting multiple errors when I try a test message.

I guess I'm not sure what to put in for the Mail Server Settings, or which boxes to check.

Thanks,

SilkRod


A quick google turned up these settings for AOL:
Sender name: Your name
Sender email: Your aol email

Recipient username: your phone number
Recipient hostname: messaging.sprintpcs.com

hostname: smtp.aol.com
port: 587
do not check "Use SSL"
check "Use authentication"
username: Your aol username
password: your aol password

With the exception of post 587 vs 25, that's exactly the way I had the settings....but still getting the error messages. I don't need some type of mail service on my server....do I?

No, you don't need a mail service on your server. You could try to find the smtp info for your ISP, if you tell us who that is we can likely find the mail server settings for you.

smwoodward, why don't you try your scenario where you got lots of messages telling you anti-virus is disabled, and watch what happens in Remote Notification? I think you'll see the answer to your questions about the WHS event behavior.

I don't know exactly what behavior you experienced. My experience with WHS notifying me of antivirus is that it only re-issues the event when either the client or server are restarted. You said you were installing lots of apps after reloading the OS -- I'm guessing you were rebooting the client periodically after installing drivers or apps, which would cause WHS to issue a new notification, hence you'd get the new mail. In this case, it's not the same notification refreshing, it's a new notification for the same problem being issued and then closed.

My ISP is AOL. As I stated earlier, I believe I have all the settings in correctly just as you stated in your previous posting.

Ok, I wasn't sure if you had AOL as an ISP or AOL strictly for mail. Sorry, I don't use AOL and have no way to troubleshoot... hopefully someone else can chime in!

I'm sorry, correction....AOL is not my ISP, Verizon DSL is my ISP. I use AOL strictly for email only.

Bingo, this is what I was hoping to hear. :) Try this:

Sender name: Your name
Sender email: Your Verizon email

Recipient username: your phone number
Recipient hostname: messaging.sprintpcs.com

hostname: outgoing.verizon.net
port: 25
do not check "Use SSL"
check "Use authentication"
username: Your verizon username
password: your verizon password

But, my email service is AOL, not Verizon. Verizon DSL is just my ISP. I guess I'll just wait on getting this to work. I'm moving in a few weeks and my ISP is going to change to Verizon FIOS. Maybe I'll have better luck then.

To the best of my knowledge, all ISPs provide you with a default user account that includes an email address. You don't have to regularly use the email address to utilize your ISP's SMTP server...

Yes, you are correct, but I have no idea what that email address might be. As stated, I'll just wait until I switch to FIOS in a few weeks. However, I don't see why I need to use Verizon's SMTP server. I have Windows Live Messaging setup to recieve and send emails via AOL's SMTP server with no problem.

Then you should be able to use those same settings in Remote Notification. If that's not working, there should be an exception popping up, share that screenshot of the error and I'll see what's up.

Thanks, but how can I do a screenshot of the error message?

Do you not get an error dialog pop up when you attempt to send a sample notification? If so, then press "Printscreen" on your keyboard, paste that into Paint, save as jpg, and upload here via the attachment mechanism.

OK, a screen shot of the error message is attached. Again, Thanks for all your help and patience.

I'm no SMTP expert, but that looks like you probably have everything configured correctly, but the AOL SMTP server is rejecting you for some reason. I did read some posts that their SMTP server sometimes rejects sending mails.

I'd suggest trying to find your Verizon SMTP server login and email account; you don't have to actually use that account, just send the emails via it.

Sorry I can't help more...
