When sending and receiving e-mail make sure to use the mail server: mail.server.com and the username is in the format of firstname.lastname@example.org. Where ‘server.com’ is the actual domain for your web site and where ‘username’ is the actual username for that e-mail account. Finally when sending e-mail you must make sure to select the option ‘My outgoing server requires authentication’ within Outlook/Outlook Express.

You may receive an error similar to:
The connection to the server has failed. Account ‘mail.server.com’, Server ‘mail.server.com’, Protocol SMTP, Port 25, Secure(SSL) No, Socket Error 10060, Error Number 0x800CCC0E
The reason you are getting this error is that some Internet Service Providers (ISP’s), including AT&T WorldNet, MindSpring, MSN, Prodigy Internet, Sprynet, EarthLink, USAOnline, NetZero, CableAmerica, Cox Communications, require you to send all outgoing messages through their mail servers. They will not allow you to send through 3rd party SMTP servers. These ISP’s are doing this to prevent unwanted spam and catch those sending spam/junk e-mails.
You will still be able to use your normal e-mail address however you will need to change the outgoing server in Outlook Express to the SMTP server your ISP recommends, please check your ISP’s web site for mail server information.
Alternatively, you can use port 26 to send e-mail with. Simply change the settings in your e-mail software to use port 26 rather than port 25.
