Troubleshooting - email
If you are using an ISP based email and find you cannot send you may wish to try the below settings:
Smtp for outbound ISP pop3/imap4 email: smtp2.vodafone.net.nz
This is required for those members wishing to collect or send their personal ISP email while connected to the Black+White network. It is often referred to as the 'outgoing mail server'.
However if you have a vodefone.co.nz email address you may need to use smtp.vodafone.net.nz
