Outgoing Server: If asked for an outgoing email server you must contact your phone service provider.
Exceptions: Sprint customers and Verizon iPhone customers.
Sprint no longer provides email services and an outgoing email server. Verizon only provides email services to FiOS or DSL customers, contact Verizon if you are a FiOS or DSL customer.
For all other Sprint and Verizon customers: to set up your FIT email you must use the outgoing mail server of a public email service such as Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo.
