    Those outgoing server settings only work if you are sending email while connected to a wireless network using Shaw’s Internet service. If you need to send email on the road using your cellular service, you need to use your provider’s outgoing email server settings.

    For Roger’s customers, it’s:
    smtp server: smtp.rogerswirelessdata.com
    security type: none
    server port: 25
    login required: no

    It took me some searching to find those settings.

      Thank you!! That was the last thing I needed and it worked… Thx!

    • Roy Baxter

      mate you are a superstar being try to set this up for two months , rogers all the way , not shaw , yee haaa cowboy !!!!

      well done Delz

    • Catprints

      Yes, it took me a while to figure this out, however, it only works while using the Rogers network.  If you are using a wireless network, as we do when on holidays, outgoing messages sit in the outbox.  Any suggestions?

  • Anonymous

    Dido that outgoing settings won’t work unless your on wifi.

  • WhiteHotLoveTiger

    Does anyone here actually use their ISP’s email service? I would have assumed that most people in this crowd use a web based email provider like google or yahoo, if they don’t host their own.

  • Smacgregor

    this didnt work for me – and i tried jaydelz’s way also…”unable to open connection to server’

  • Tdbdaisy

    Does anyone know the outgoing settings if your phone is with MTS, but your email address is with Shaw?

  • Mergatroid

    The instructions for Shaw email did not work on my Samsung Galaxy S phone. The incoming works, but when I set up the outgoing it tells me my login creds are wrong. I have set this email address up on about 100 computers and devices over the last 20 years so I know they are correct. My account works fine in my last smart phone, and four computers currently in use by me, but the outgoing setup will just not work on this phone.

    message any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks

    • Mookiebud

      Luke,

      I get a similar msg. Still trying to figure it out. Have you had any success? Shaw’s instructions don’t seem to work properly. Thanks

    • Heyitsmerookie

      I have the same issues. Please post a link to some correct instructions!!

    • Lukeb

      No i haven’t had any real success yet, my grandpa just wanted me to move his contacts over though, so I exported them to windows, then uploaded them to the tablet. I was trying the shaw instructions when i got the message and they’re the best i came across

  • None

    no … username and password continue to fail [after a couple of dozen frustrating attempts]  on the Outgoing server settings screen … I’m done, screw it.

    • Camofool

      leaving it blank for email and password works, menaing it completes the check BUT IT STILL WON’T SEND. Will get email on PC or Tablet instead.

      • Camofool

        Now it’s down to “cannot connect” using no email or passwords under the outgoing settings. Tried everything just won’t work!

        • Lorddrakos01

          I have a working solution that I posted yesterday awaiting AIC approval.

      • None

        thank you *that* works :)

  • Themartinis

    The incoming works but the outgoing does not! Help!

  • Themartinis

    This does not work unless you sign up for “beta” shawmail first – under preferences, enable mobile devices, and then it works!
    Shaw and WIND told me it would never work, but it did! YaY!

  • Likwid

    Awesome!! Worked great, thank you!

  • Purple77

    trying to add my shaw account to my Galaxy Nexus and I can do incoming but outgoing doesn’t work? It even shut my phone down???

  • Realhard

    Bullshi shaw and android phone

    Telus and iPhones rule

    • JF_SEBASTIAN

      Iphones are for little 6 year old girls and “special” people.
      Telus internet sucks. Found Shaw to be more reliable.

  • Slacosse

    didn’t work for me. Galaxy SII. Bell. credentials failed, security or something.  Then the next time it was “too many connections”. Try again, and again, same result. not working. On ICS.

  • Joshzeegerman

    The above works you just have to change one thing. on the outgoing, uncheck Require Sign In, then it works

  • Paulsandhu2

    i am having the same trouble with my galaxy s2x phone. wither says creds are wrongs or too many connections form your host

  • aging nurse

    Doesn’t work for me on my Google phone. I receive email, but can’t send.

  • Lori

  • jamk

    Better then the instructions from shaw! thanks!

  • Boonie

    Great instructions.  I’m using a loaner phone while mine is in repair and couldn’t recall how to set up my shaw email.  Thanks for posting this.  :o)

  • Garry

    everything is correct except for step 11. Select Require sign-in checkbox. Had to leave it unchecked to work. But it works so thanks!

    • Shelley

      that’s exactly what i had to do too!!! THANKS for the help :)

  • Deen

    These settings work but i had to leave step 11 unchecked thought this might be helpful since it took me a few hours of playing around.

  • Joyce

    Help still getting the notice unable to connect to server on outgoing set up

  • Patches

    I have the new Samsung Galaxy Note II. I also use the “new” Shaw Webmail 2.0 Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync Server: This
    setup is recommended for users who currently have Webmail 2.0 who would
    like to synch their emails, Webmail Contacts, Calendars and Reminders
    with their Android device
    Click here and there is a .pdf document for the new Samsung phones that is up to date.

    I find that Shaw’s wireless router is a problem too in that it will not deliver all of your emails even if you have properly configured / set up your Shaw email account on your Telus phone. Try shutting off your WiFi on your Telus phone while at home and I think you will find that you will then receive all of your emails instead of just some of them. Not a good solution though since you want to utilize your so called “free” WiFi at home, but ………
