Frequently Asked Questions

What port should I use for sending mail?

Our servers recommend you use port "587" as your 'outgoing' (aka 'smtp') port. Be default this is set to 25 in most mail clients.

Why: Port 25 is blocked (filtered) by most Internet Providers (Cable, DSL, etc.) to cut down on infected PC spamming.

In Outlook: Go to Account Settings --> Change --> More Settings --> Advanced --> Change '25' to '587'.  (Instructions may vary based on version of Outlook)
