Hi

I've just upgraded to Premier and transfered my domain name into Plus net (Haven't I been busy!)

I have a question though... At work I use a BT Openworld connection, as that's my employers choice. How do I send e-mail? I used to use mail.smile-e.co.uk as my old host set it up. Now, however, I can't use that, nor can I use relay.plus.net on the BT connection. I can't see how I can send mail using my Plus account using Outlook...

Help!

Thanks

Steve

Hi,

At the moment, you can't use the SMTP relay servers from a non-PlusNet connection - presumably to prevent spammers abusing them. So you have 3 options really:

  • Sign up for the "Essential Services" package - with this you can use authenticated SMTP, and thus send emails through the relay servers with your BTO connection
  • Use the Webmail client when you're at work - with a bit of configuration you can send emails from your domain address
  • Wait for Idea 2250 to be implemented - don't hold your breath though Wink

Hi

Thanks for this. For now I have gone for the free & easy configure webmail. It's a shame, but it's better than nothing.

At least it means I'm not open to all those Outlook vulnerabilities!

Thanks for the really quick answer!
