How do I send mail through my hosting account?

ConnectNC hosting customers have a few options for sending e-mail.

  1. We recommend that customers always use the outgoing mail server of the ISP they connect to the Internet through. For example, If your DSL provider is Verizon, we ask that you send using Verizon’s outgoing (smtp) mail server. You will need to call your ISP or check their web site for outgoing mail server settings.
  2. If you are unable, for whatever reason, to send out through your ISP’s outgoing server, we need to have you call them to find out why.
  3. If you’re traveling, you can send out mail through your web server using SMTP auth. However, most hotels and business establishments block port 25 traffic, so you may find that this solution doesn’t work either. If that’s the case, then you should use your company webmail for outgoing messages or ask the hotel concierge or a network administrator what setting you should use.
