Configuring your email program to send and receive email is a necessary step
to properly use your domain's email address. You need to use an email client
program that supports the Post Office Protocol (POP3) and Simple Mail Transport
Protocol (SMTP) standards. While these are standards, the configuration settings

of common email programs below.
Note: You now may use your
Internet Service Provider (ISP) as your SMTP Server for your outgoing email.
Please check the
SMTP Reference Table below or ask your ISP for the name of the SMTP server
that you can use to relay your outgoing mail.
*** Caution Norton Anti-Virus users with Email

In Norton Anti-Virus Options, please disable Email Protection temporarily while
you reconfigure your software. When the configuration changes are made, then
re-enable your Norton Anti-Virus Email Protection.
You may now use your domain's mail server for outgoing mail
rather than your ISP's if you configure your email client correctly. One of the
two choices below should work.

for you to send out through our server.
If you are not able to use "POP Before SMTP" you may use
SMTP Authentication by configuring your email client. Check the box for "My
outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"
In the example below from Outlook 2003 you would check the
box "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication:
