How to Set Up Your Email Client

Now that you have your new email accounts you will want to set up your email client. SMB only supports MS Outlook, Outlook Express and Mozilla Thunderbird.  You may use other software, but it will be up to you to create and configure your local accounts.

Typical email accounts include outgoing SMTP, meaning that you can send email through the SMB mail server.  Many website hosts do not allow access to their SMTP server, due to spam issues.  SMB allows its use for legitimate business and personal use, but there are limitations.  For instance, emailing large email lists is not allowed (more...) For emailing a large number of addresses you will need a third party solution, like Constant Contact.  SMB highly recommends Constant Contact for your email advertizing needs.

The information you will need to set up your email client is as follows:
Mail Server Username: (in your email setup letter)
Mail Account Password: (in your email setup letter)
Incoming Mail Server:
Outgoing Mail Server: (server requires authentication)
Incoming Server Type: POP3
Incoming Server Port: #110
Outgoing Port: #26
