Setting Secure Email Authentication
It's actually pretty easy to set your supported Email Client for Secure Outbound Authentication. Below are some examples based on some popular email clients along with some screen captures.

If you have an email client that is NOT detailed on this page, let us know about it and we'll figure it out for you. :)

 

Outlook

Open up Outlook and click on TOOLS and then SERVICES.

Highlight the pop3 account you want to configure and you will get a new window with that server's settings. Click the SERVERS tab and you will see something like this (minus the red arrow of course. ;> ):

Outlook Settings

Make sure that the "My server requires authentication" is checked. You can ignore the settings button next to it as it defaults to using your username and password (which is appropriate in this case).

 

Outlook Express

Open up Outlook Express and click on TOOLS and then ACCOUNTS.

Click the MAIL tab and highlight the pop3 account you want to configure. Click the PROPERTIES button to the right.

You will get a new window with that server's settings. Click the SERVERS tab and you will see something like this (minus the red arrow of course. ;> ):

Outlook Express Settings

Make sure that the "My server requires authentication" is checked. You can ignore the settings button next to it as it defaults to using your username and password (which is appropriate in this case).

 

Netscape 3.x - 5.x

Open up Netscape Mail and click on EDIT and then PREFERENCES. You will see a section called "Mail & Newsgroups". Click that and you should see something like the following:

Netscape Settings

Make sure that you have set the outgoing mail server as pop3.yourdomain.com and that you have provided your username in that location.

 

Netscape Communicator 6.x

Open up Netscape Mail and click on EDIT and then PREFERENCES. You will see a section called "Mail & Newsgroups". Click that and you should see something like the following:

Netscape Communicator Settings

Click on the "Outgoing (SMTP) Server" option and make sure that you have clicked on the "Always use name and password" option, and enter your username into the "User Name:" field. You need not set anything in the "Advanced" button part.

 

Eudora Email

Open up Eudora Email and select TOOLS and then OPTIONS. You will see a screen similar to this:

Eudora Settings

Under the GETTING STARTED section, you'll see where you can enter your mail information. Make sure you have the "Allow authentication" checkbox CHECKED.

Under the "Sending Mail" section, you'll see something similar (the "Allow authentication" checkbox). Make sure that is checked too.

 

Having problems?

If you have any problems utilizing any of these options, please don't hesitate to give our support line (818-761-2100) a call and we'll solve any problems you're having with email, no matter what it takes.

We want to be both "net responsible" _AND_ customer aware.
