Go here to setup your e-mail program http://support.aiso.net/index.php?_m=troubleshooter&_a=steps&troubleshootercatid=2&parentid=0 or follow the steps below:|
Setup email on Mozilla Thunderbird
Click onÂ File > New > Account
Enter your name and email address. Click next
Select POP with incomming server of mail.yourdomainname.com. Click next
Incoming User Name justÂ typeÂ in theÂ complete email address here. (i.e. in the case of email@example.com, "firstname.lastname@example.org" is the User Name for this mailbox). Click the "Next" button. Outgoing User Name just type the same as Incoming User Name, the complete email address. Click next
Account nameÂ gives you a place to type in a title that will be displayed only to you for your E-mail account. Click Finish.
Select "Tools > Account settings" in the top menu
Click on Outgoing Server (SMTP). Outgoing mail server (SMTP) type mail.yourdomainname.com. Uncheck the box "Use name and password".Â For spam protection we use a function called "POP before SMTP". Whenever you log in for POP3 mail, the server checks that the connection was made from your computerÂ and permits to send messages for a limited time.
If you are unable to connect to the smtp server or send email outbound, your ISP may be blocking port 25 from 3rd party use. Contact your ISP and ask them for their SMTP server address if this occurs. You can also use mail.your-domain-name.com and the SMTP port 587 for sending emails.
