The IP address and gateway address you put into your newton should NOT be the
same as the numbers in your router!
Your Newton needs a separate IP address. Think of it this way - if both your
Newton and your Router had the same address, how would anything determine
which computer they were talking to?
If your router supports DHCP for configuration, then use it. I don't think
your manual configuration is anywhere near correct.
If DHCP won't work (ie. SimpleMail complains as you say or you get a -60088
error) I think you should change your manual setup on the Newton as follows:
Local IP Address: 192.168.123.25 (anything but .254)
Gateway Router Address: 192.168.123.254 (this is your router's local IP, and
we need to use your router as a gateway to the internet)
