What are my incoming and outgoing mail servers?
You should use mail.yourdomain.com (substituting
yourdomain.com for the domain name the email account
is hosted on) for both incoming and outgoing mail servers.
should my account/username be?
You must write this as firstname.lastname@example.org (e.g.
including the domain part). Just putting the bit before
the @ as the account will not work.
I can't send mail!
You must turn outgoing mail authentication on. To
do this in Outlook Express, choose Accounts from the
Tools menu, then select your account and click the Properties
button. On the Servers tab, make sure the "My server
requires authentication" box is checked in the
"Outgoing Mail Server" box.
I still can't send mail!
Chances are your Internet Service Provider is using
Port 25 blocking, which prevents you from using any
out-going mail server other than their own. If this
is the case, you need to use their outgoing mail server
to send your email. You need to contact your ISP if
you do not have the details for this.
is the difference between an alias and a forwarder?
An alias is where one address at a particular domain
name is actually an alias for another address at that
domain name. A forward allows you to forward mail for
a particular address to an address at another domain
is a mail domain alias?
If you have aliased two domain names, e.g. something.co.uk
and something.com, you may want all email sent to something.com
to go to the inboxes you've set up for something.co.uk.
You use a mail domain alias to achieve this. This is
not the same as a normal mail alias.
