Special Instructions regarding the Outgoing Mail Server SMTP Authentication
We normally recommend that you use your ISP's SMTP mail server. If you are planning on moving between different ISPs, then we recommend that you set up your SMTP to use our servers.

For your SMTP server, enter the outgoing server details we provided. Then click More Settings and choose Outgoing Server. Now click My Outgoing Server Requires Authentication, and select Checking incoming Server before sending. If that does not work try Log On Using, then enter your username and password.

Click Next when you've finished entering these details.
