a message, and receive that same message in your new account,
then congratulations! - you've successfully setup your first
email account on our servers. You can configure as
many email accounts as your like in Outlook Express using
the same above process.
problems with sending mail:
Due the the mass amount of abuse from a few problem souls,
an increasing number of ISP's are disabling ability to "send
mail" through someone else's SMTP server. If
you receive an error message when attempting
to use our "Outgoing SMTP" server, it probably
means your ISP has denied access to (what is otherwise known)
as 'third party relaying." To solve this problem,
simply go back to your account properties, and select the
"server settings" tab. Then, there
are two things you must do:
1. Change the
"SMTP Outgoing Mail Server"
settings to the same ones as you're using on your ISP's
email account. To do this, have a look at "Step
8" just a few above this one. In this case, select
the properties of your ISP mail account, then go to properties,
and select "Servers."
Copy those "SMTP Outgoing Mail
Server" settings to your new account, or write
them down and enter them in manually.
the "My Server Requires Authentication"
DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE!
You can now receive mail from your domain account, while
sending mail will be accomplished through your ISP's SMTP
servers. This will in no way affect the performance
or look of your email messages coming from your domain.
DO NOT send large volumes of mailings
through our SMTP Relay server. It's really provided as a
courtesy to our users, and not something to be used for
mass mailing list purposes. If you're sending large emails,
or are running a mailing list, PLEASE use your ISP's mail
server for this purpose. They are better setup for this
sort of heavy duty usage, and you won't clog our SMTP server,
which also needs to provide resources to other users.
