To check emails via your cellphone, I recommend checking it using webmail
using the cellphone's internet browser.

Error: The recipient was rejected by the server.

1. You receive this message when one of the email addresses you sent was invalid.
The server receives this email and sees that the email address does not exist.
The email server then emails you the message "One of the recipients was rejected by the server".
You should then verifty with the recipient the correct email address and resend the email.
If you sent this email to multiple recipients all of the valid email was delivered.
You only need to resend to the rejected one.
Try replying to the person instead of typing out the person's email address.
(For new set ups: make sure the 'My server requires authentication' checkbox is checked. )
