: : E-mail & Spamming Inquiries : Email Troubleshooting
|Answer:|| I can not send out e-mails. Why?
a. The Outgoing (SMTP) server requires authentication. If you are using Outlook Express/Outlook, you should check the box 'My server requires authentication'. In Eudora it is 'Authentication allowed'.
b. Your SMTP (outgoing mail server) could be blocked.
- If you are behind a firewall, we may be unable to authenticate you. If you have a personal firewall, try lowering the security.
- Call your ISP and ask if they block people sending through remote SMTP's. Some are doing that, though relatively few.
- You can use your ISP's SMTP server. In your email client, put the SMTP server that you use to send out your ISP email, and your email will still appear with your domain name. Also see the error messages explanations.
 My password does not work. What am I to do?

You are on a an ISP that blocks their users using any SMTP server other than their own. Your solution is as follows:
To set up your ISP's SMTP servers for your outgoing email you must click on your account settings in the email client you are using (Outlook Express, Eudora, Netscape etc.)
In the SMTP (outgoing mail server) field you will enter whatever your dial up or direct access ISP's SMTP server is as your SMTP server. You must then enter your ISP's username and password for that mail server.
In Outlook Express it is at the bottom of that same tab. You must uncheck 'My server requires authentication' and click on 'settings' to enter your ISP's username and password.
Your email will still be from your own domain name, the only difference is in the way it is routed throughout the Internet. Instead of being sent through our servers it is processed through your ISP's servers. This allows your ISP to monitor its users.
