Go to the main meu "Tools" and select "Account Settings" to bring up the following account setting window. Highlight "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" and add an out going server for the mail client.
Make sure your Outgoing SMTP server has the following settings. Make sure check box "Use name and password" is check and enter your email address as the User Name. If your ISP blocks outgoing SMTP port (25), you can use port 2525 instead. To konw if port 25 is blocked or not, you can use DOS/Linux command
>> telnet mail.dnsexit.com 25
If you see response messages after the command, then the port should be opened; otherwise, it is blocked by your ISP.
Our mail server does support both secure connections: SSL and TLS
