Telstra blocking sending emails on Mobile Phone



I have had an iPhone 4 and now a LG G2 Android.  On both phone, Telstra Mobile have blocked me sending emails with several POP accounts.  Gmail is OK. 


Receiving emails is OK.   Someone suggested using Gmail as the outgoing email server, but this did not work either.


How do you fix this?    I don't have a BigPond account, and use Optusnet email and several other POP 3 accounts.
