    I am developing and embedded application that needs to send emails through a GPRS (cell phone) connection to an ordinary SMTP server.

    of all, I experienced "strange behavior" of different provider, it seems that each cell phone provider has its own SMTP server for free email accounts, and the servers of the other providers seem to be "banned out" if you try to contact them by connecting throuhg a different cell phone provider. This happens at least in Italy but I had some experience in the US with cingular, at it seems to happen there too. Does anybody have a clear view of what happens?

    Second, it seems that the body text of the outgoing emails is truncated to no more of around 3,000 ascii chars. Does anybody know it this is related to any limitation of the smnt servers/protocol?

    Thanks for the help.
