In the OUTGOING MAIL (SMTP) SERVER field,
we highly recommend using the outgoing or SMTP server of your Internet
Service Provider (ISP). The reason is because you should experience
faster performance from your own ISP. In some cases, you will not be
able to use your ISPs SMTP server for sending out emails.
If you are using our SMTP servers
please be sure to set your outgoing mail server to "mail.yourdomain.com"
from within your email program. Also, please be aware that in order
to send email though our servers you must have successfully checked your
account within the past 60 minutes. Once you have checked your mail, you
will be able to send mail for the next 60 minutes. We have our server
setup this way so that spammers cannot access our smtp servers so
easily. Otherwise spammers could relay their bulk mail through your
account and send out millions of emails. Not only is spamming illegal in
some states, but it also degrades the server performance.
Click OK. This completes the
basic setup - you should now be able to send and receive email in
