I can not send email using My server SMPT why?

1. you may need to have my server requires authentication checked. (example) outlook express. go to the tools,accounts mail, properties,servers in that order and check mark the box that says"my server requires authentication"

2. Some ISP's block to use of port 25 (Remote SMPT) on their connection the only way around this is to
   a. switch ISP's or complain to your ISP we do not control their policies.
   b. use your ISP's SMPT by entering it in the log in info for  "my server requires authentication"
   c. or use port 587.              

  3.  The current list of ISP's that block port 25 SMPT

if you are having connection issues open a trouble ticket and include the error code and we can help you resolve the issues with your ISP.

to check to see if your ISP blocks remote SMPT

Windows - open a command prompt/ms-dos prompt and type the command  

telnet yourdomain.com 25
if the connection times out (yields no information) your ISP blocks remote SMPT.

you may need to enable your telnet client inthe windows control panel

Unix/Linux/Mac - open a terminal window and enter the same command
