    My email provider, Cogeco does not support wireless outgoing mail. To set up email on my Z10, I have used the pop settings from cogeco, but have to use the smtp settings from Bell, my wireless carrier. The issue is that Bell's smtp server(mail.1xbell.ca) will not send over wifi. So if your connected to wifi and need to email, you must drop the wifi, send, then reconnect. I have tried to use gmail as an smtp server, as this will send fine, but I cannot seem to make it work. any suggestions.

    I had a long talk to cogeco about this and they didn't seem to really care that I was having an issue. The response I got was switch the smtp server to cogeco when on wifi at my home and change it to the wireless carrier smtp when I leave the house. That ain't gonna happen. So I am migrating my emails from cogeco to gmail and I will dump cogeco email. Someone on the supportforums at blackberry suggested that you could setup multiple SMTP servers in Pre-OS10, but they don't exist in OS10. I haven't been able to confirm this.

    I agree with you, had the same chat with Cogeco last night. There answer was to turn off Wi fi when I need to send emails.
    The funny part of all this is that my previous blackberry curve never had this issue. Both Bell and Blackberry have told me it is a Cogeco issue. Cogeco doesn't seem too concerned. Not being a real tech guy, sounds like a simple patch from Cogeco for new Blackberry's would solve the problem.

    Hi, FYI this has been a problem with iPhones and Bell and cogeco sending email over wifi for ever. Cogeco and Bell just don't care.
    My friend has iPhone, Rogers & cogeco email and she can send and receive on wifi no problem.
    Its clearly a Bell / Cogeco issue and neither seems interested in resolving it. Maybe if more Blackberry users complain too we might all get somewhere.

    I have same issue. Z10 on Rogers carrier with my primary email acct being @cogeco.ca

    I can only use Cogeco's server (smtp.cogeco.ca) to send email when I'm connected via WiFi to my home network (internet service provider is Cogeco). If I'm not connected to home network, I must use Rogers server (smtp.rogerswirelessdata.com) to send email from the Z10. There is no option for multiple outgoing mail servers in the email account settings on the Z10.

    Also, a new wrinkle has occurred (too often): Cannot send email from @cogeco.ca account via Rogers outgoing server even when WiFi is disconnected (for example, if I'm away from home using data connection only). The work-around required deleting my @cogeco.ca account from Z10 and then re-installing it...all of which is a pain-in-the-a$$

    As a strong BlackBerry supporter, I find this frustrating and disappointing. I've spoken with Rogers...been quickly passed off to Cogeco. Spoken to Cogeco...passed off to Rogers. I was even in touch with BlackBerry via direct message on Twitter and guess what? I was told to have Rogers contact BlackBerry regarding the matter. My pessimistic half tells me the chances of Rogers actually bothering to do this are less-than-slim.

    If anyone can add some insight to help with this inconvenience, I would be grateful.

    Get yourself a gmail account and use the gmail smtp settings.. also forward the gmail email to your cogeco account thus creating a junk account that you can use for useless email sign ups

    Hi create an account in outlook.com and forward your cogeco emails to that account. Once forwarding is done log into your outlook.com account and do as below:

    1. Go to options and click email accounts
    2. Select send account only
    3. Put your cogeco accounts details

    Now coming to handset do below steps:
    1. Go into settings and then account
    2. Open advance and select Microsoft active sync
    3. Type your outlook.com in username
    4. Type your cogeco email address in email address space
    5. Put your outlook.com password where prompted
    6. Put s.outlook.com as server address

    And you are done now u can receive and send emails as u want

    BB Z10 100-1 |

    Cogeco actually supports IMAP on BB10 now. I will post configuration when I get a chance.


    Username the same as your email address.
    Server Address: imap.cogeco.ca
    Port: 993
    Encryption: SSL

    SMTP Username same as your email
    Server Address: smtp.cogeco.ca
    Port: 465
    Encryption: SSL
