How to configure Outlook Express With POP Before SMTP Relay

Date Created: 18 Nov, 2009   (13 year(s) ago) Viewed: 3212 Rating: 


Our use different SMTP relays for sending mail - POP before SMTP. In POP before SMTP, the relay system collects your IP address when you authenticate yourself with the POP server, and then permits SMTP relaying from that IP address for 5 minute.

In other words, you need to check your mail first, only then you can send your messages.

To configure your Outlook Express or any other e-mail client, you need to know your POP3 and SMTP servers address.

In this tutorial we will learn how to setup Outlook Express with POP Before SMTP Relay.
  • The setting is not applied to WebMail.
  • With POP before SMTP authorization, once a user has successfully authenticated to the POP server, user is permitted to receive and send e-mail through the mail server for the next 5 minutes.
  • With SMTP authorization, your mail server requires authorization if the e-mail message must be sent to an external address. Your mail server supports LOGIN, CRAM-MD5 and PLAIN methods of SMTP authorization.
  • If you can't send mail via port 25 due to blocks imposed by your ISP, you can enable the special submission port (587) within our server pretty easily.
  • Domain name and server name must contain only lower case characters because the domain name system is case insensitive.
  • Password are case sensitive.
