The most common e-mail issue is the inability to send e-mails and MTA or relay issues. This is caused by not having your email account set-up properly. To fix the way your e-mail account(s) are set-up please read the following information and instructions.

SMTP Authentication
SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) is used for the transmission of e-mail on the Internet. Previously, the only method for validating whether a user should be allowed to send e-mail was to check the IP address of the computer connecting, or check e-mail headers for certain names or domains. This is increasingly causing a problem with virus and spam propagation. The SMTP protocol has now been extended to support username and password authentication, just like POP or IMAP has used all along.

SMTP Authentication requires an email client that supports SMTP Authentication protocols. Fortunately, it is now becoming a common and necessary feature and most major e-mail clients like Eudora, Outlook Express, Netscape 6, Microsoft Outlook and Pegasus support it. If your version doesn't support it, a link to the LATEST FREE versions of these programs is available under configuration information for that product.

The following sections describe how to configure popular mail clients for SMTP authentication. If you use a mailer different from these, look for options similar to those shown here and call our support if more assistance is needed.
