How do I configure my SMTP settings on the Total Access Emailer options form?
SMTP Settings for Total Access Emailer
Do I need to enter a user name and password?
Not necessarily. The user name and password are required for mail servers that require authentication. Not all servers require authentication. If your server does not require authentication, leave the user name and password fields blank.
If you're not sure whether your server requires authentication, please contact your system administrator, or the administrator of the mail server that you are connecting to.
What port number should I use for my mail server?
Use the port number field to specify what port to use to establish a connection with the mail server.
The default port number for most SMTP/ESMTP mail servers is port 25, or 465 for servers that require SSL. By default, Total Access Emailer is configured with the default port number (25 or 465, depending on the connection type). If your mail server uses a different port number, change the value in Total Access Emailer to match your mail server.
Do I need to enter Firewall settings?
Enter the firewall settings if the computer goes through a firewall to get to the SMTP server. These settings do not refer to a server firewall, but to a local firewall.
Otherwise, leave all firewall settings blank, and set the firewall type to "None".
