How do I send an e-mail from my computer using Secure SMTP server?
You can send an email from a regular email program (also called a mail client) that runs on your own computer. These are programs like Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, Mozilla Mail, Eudora, etc. In order to be able to send an email, you should configure your mail client correctly. Firstly make sure you have a registered SMTP account.
You will need the following settings to set up your mail client:
- Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server. An outgoing mail server name, also called an SMTP server or SMTP relay. In order to send emails through our smtp service you should set Outgoing Mail Server to:
- SMTP User Name and SMTP Password.
Note: Secure Password Authentication can be used at logon, then the authenticated data, such as user name and password will be encrypted and securely transmitted to the server.
- Return email address (email 'FROM' address). You can select any email address from your SMTP accounts. This is the address that people will see when they receive messages from you and is the address that they will reply to.
- Port Number. If your Internet Service Provider blocks the default TCP/IP mail port (port 25), use an alternate port, No SSL: 25, 80, 8080, 5000. SSL: 2525, 574, 4000, 5001.
- You can enable TLS/SSL encryption in the mail client, then all connections with the Secure SMTP server will be encrypted.
Note: Enabling TLS/SSL connection is not a requirement but a highly recommended option for the safe and secure transmission of data.
