Outgoing mail server


#1

What’s the outgoing mail server? Is it mail.domainname.com ?
Because I’m having problems with sending mail with outlook express 6.

Yup - mail.example.com, unless your provider blocks outgoing port 25 connections, in which case you will have to use their SMTP server, or connect to ours on port 587.

Make sure you have Outlook configured for SMTP authentication. This is not the default - you will have to go into the “account settings” or something for that account, and enable SMTP auth specifically.There are some kbase articles which may be of help.
