Properties Dialog Box:
Server Access Information:
SMTP Server: Type in the SMTP address which is used for all outgoing emails. The address is usually a name such as smtp.domain.net but can also be an address in number format. If you do not know the name or address, your email service provider or system administrator should be able to provide it to you.
Server Port: Type in the port number for your SMTP outgoing mail server. In most cases, port 25 is used for unencrypted connections, port 587 is used for either unencrypted or TLS encrypted connections, and port 465 is used for SSL encrypted connections. Contact your email service provider for the correct port number.
Encryption: Choose the encryption type that is required by your SMTP outgoing mail server. Most servers now require some form of encryption but there are still some that support unencrypted connections.
User Name: Type in the username given to you by your email service provider. If your service provider does not require a username and password, leave this blank.
Password: Type in the password given to you by your email service provider. If your service provider does not require a username and password, leave this blank.
Name: Type in the name of the sender which will be attached to the email message. This field is optional and can be left blank.
Email: Type in the email address of the sender. Note, most outgoing email servers will not allow an email to be sent without a return email address, so this field can not be left blank.
Reply-To: Type in the email address which will be used by the recipient when sending a reply to this email message. This field is optional and can be left blank. If blank, the reply email will be directed to the return email address entered above.
Using Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail
The free email services like Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail can be used as your outgoing mail server. Go to their web site for server setup information. Note that the first time you send an email through these providers, they may respond with an email stating that an unknown device tried to access your account. If this occurs, you must enable access by the unknown device which in this case will be ModCom. Follow the link in their email to enable access.
