Windows Mobile 6.1 SMTP error – The Official Fix

I’m sure that many of you are well aware of the SMTP problem in Windows Mobile 6.1 whereby ANY SMTP error will render the account unusable. We reported this problem to Microsoft a few months ago and they’ve been working on a fix since. We released an unofficial patch a few weeks ago and most of you that used the patch have found it to be successful.

Today Microsoft finally released an official patch for the problem which can be downloaded from HERE.

Windows Mobile 6.1 POP and IMAP Send Mail Patch

This behavior is associated with a feature that is introduced in Windows Mobile 6.1. The feature allows for mobile operators to specify an alternate SMTP server name that is used if e-mail messages cannot be sent by using the user-specified SMTP server name. If the mobile operator does not specify an alternate SMTP server name and if the Windows Mobile 6.1-based device does not connect, the e-mail account is corrupted and cannot send e-mail messages.

I haven’t tried this myself yet but if you do install it please let us know how you get on!
