smtp issue





inoshi
Hi,

I'm trying to setup on my desktop client email through hosted domain here.

I can receive, but not send as the smtp won't validate, I get a timeout.

My "outlook settings" are as follows, and am unsure of where the problem is occurring:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts\inoshi]
"Account Name"="inoshi@[my.dom]"
"Connection Type"=dword:00000003
"POP3 Server"="mail.[my.dom]"
"SMTP Server"="mail.[my.dom]"
"POP3 User Name"="inoshi"
"SMTP User Name"=""
"POP3 Prompt for Password"=dword:00000000
"SMTP Prompt for Password"=dword:00000000
"SMTP Display Name"="inoshi@[my.dom]"
"SMTP Email Address"="inoshi@[my.dom]"
"POP3 Skip Account"=dword:00000000
"SMTP Use Sicily"=dword:00000002
"POP3 Timeout"=dword:0000003c
"SMTP Timeout"=dword:0000003c
"SMTP Secure Connection"=dword:00000000
"SMTP Split Messages"=dword:00000000
"POP3 Port"=dword:0000006e
"SMTP Port"=dword:0000024b

Any ideas? Smtp user name looks odd, as a single ".

I also get a reply that Mail can't verify the identity of "mail.[my.dom]".

I set to trust, and get the final message: Trying to log in to this SMTP account failed. Verify that the username and password are correct.

What is the correct username from above please?

Ok, I set user name to inoshi instead of " and changed SSL to on, and it worked!

Somehow solved (even though I think I did this before)!

at least you made it right..

but SMTP setting is a straight forward specially if you use Thunderbird.. it automatically detects the settings.. but if you are using outlook you need to manuall set-up.

Using Mail, standard Mac OS reader.

Maybe I'll switch to Thunderbird, have consistently heard good things about it!

Yea, having used several email clients, thunderbird by far is the best for me, and better yet is the Portable edition you can get here -
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/thunderbird_portable

I can zip or compact that folder and save it to flash drive, or cloud file storage, and if my computer is stolen again, to set up my email all I have to do is get the saved file and unzip it, no new installation required to get all of my former emails, just the way it was when I saved it!
