Does anyone understand "server doesn't support authentication "?
Thanks

Use your providers webmail instead.

Also consider switching to a proper email provider who provides a modern, working service - Outlook.com and Gmail are two free options.

happens on xxx@clear.net.nz email addresses. The following applies if this is the case. If not you need to recheck your settings

AFAIK they don't support SSL and authentication (ie supplying a user name and password to send mail).
Instead clear/telstra/voda will only send mail if you are on a vodafone internet connection using the clear/voda outgoing mail server.

The work around is to set up a gmail account and use that to send mail on behalf of the clear account. or use the webmail page http://clearnet.co.nz/index.html

Thanks. I remembered the Web mail (eventually ) the other problem however is trying to send a Drive Spreadsheet (I. e attachments ) as the Explorer on android has limited options.

You can install a better browser on Android, like Firefox or Chrome.

Save the spreadsheet locally from the "Drive" cloud to your tablet, open your webmail via the browser, attach the spreadsheet, send. Done in numerous times on Android tablets :)
