Internet Service Provider should be providing you with an SMTP service
for you to send mail messages directly from your workstation. If for
some reason you cannot use your Internet Service Provider's SMTP server,
you can subscribe to Alentus' SMTP service. To arrange for this
service, please contact Alentus Sales.
After you have received
your SMTP Welcome Kit (which includes your SMTP username and SMTP
password) you can use the directions given below to setup Outlook
Express to use our SMTP server.
These directions assume you
already have your POP3 account setup in Outlook Express. If you have
not, please follow the directions in the Setting Up Your Alentus Email Account in Outlook 2002/XP document before preceeding with these directions.
Step 1. Click the Tools menu at the top of the window.
Step 2. Click Email Accounts under the Tools menu.
Step 3. Select "View or change existing e-mail accounts" and click Next.
Step 4. Highlight the account you are adding SMTP-Auth to
Step 5. Click the More Settings button.
Step 6. Click the Outgoing Server tab.
Check "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication". Select "Log
on using" and enter the SMTP username and SMTP password that appears in
your SMTP welcome kit. Do not check off "Log on using Secure Password
Authentication (SPA)". Click Ok.
Step 8. Click Next and then Finish. You are done.
