Can you walk me through setting up a SMTP account. I tried that also, and it didn't work for me.
Here is what I have under SMTP options:
Name: "my name"
Email address: "my email address"
Reply-To address: "person I'm trying to reach email"
Outgoing SMTP Server: "SMTP.my email server"
Server Port: 25 (computer picked the open port)
Connection Encryption none (when I choose SSL a dialogue box popped up 'There was an error with SSL'
(when I choose none a dialogue box popped up 'Emails could not be sent successfully'.
Authentication: plain password
User Name: "my SMTP server username"
Password: "my SMTP server password"
Am I missing something?
