Free SMTP server

 I need a free SMTP server address (like smtp.softhome.net) which works good. This means:
1. No "relaying denied" messages.
2. No "free email..." advertisements at the end of the email.
3. No singups, "you must POP first" etc. messages.

Of course, it can be a non-free email provider which allows email relaying (I used aimnet.com for a while -- as an outsider, of course).

I'm not sure I understand 3, so unless this is it, Yahoo provide free web-based Email, and also, if you are willing to get once a week an advertisment Email, it will allow POP3 access to your mail box.

Hi almiller,

Thanks for the answer, but I think you didn’t understand me.
1. I don’t need any advertisments.
2. I have already an email account (at softhome.net), but I need a good working SMTP server (softhome has an SMTP server, but it works very bad from my computer, and requires to read the POP account first, which is very uncomfortable). So I don’t want to sign up for an account, I need only an address.
3. I need the smtp server’s ADDRESS (like smtp.servername.com, or in this case smtpdomainname.yahoo.com).

Best regards,
Adam

search teh enourmous lists here http://www.emailaddresses.com/email_free.htm

note that you may have some trouble with 3).  What about getting an address that you will never use - I'd like to say that you can check for pop mail on it, but never get any, but you will probably still get spam; hmm, wait, you get one with a filter, then set it to move any mail which it receives to the trash, then when you check POP, you will never receive anything & afterwards you can SMTP. It's a little clumsy, but a good workaround, I think. After all, it only takes a second or two to check the POP & it happens in background anyway.

Btw, for free SMTP I like http://www.subdimension.com/ and htt;//www.hotpop.com, but believe that both have problem 3)

Yahoo mail supports POP3 and SMTP.  And it DOES NOT have problem 3).
However, the sender's address must be something@yahoo.com, otherwise you can't use it to send mails.
But, I don't think this is a big problem, as Yahoo mail also supports forwarding.  All the mails sent to xxx@yahoo.com can be forwarded to your softhome account.

Regards.

Unfortunately, Yahoo mail puts an advertisement at the end.

Hi graham_k, yingkit!

Thanks for the suggestions, but still is incredible for me that no one can give me an answer like

"the address what you need is:
smtp.xxxxx.com"

The signup problem (3):
I already have an account at softhome.net, an I want to keep it. So if I must subscribe for an SMTP service, it means that I can’t send messages with a softhome.net mail address.
There are two kind of SMTP servers:
1. which are checkig the clients
2. which aren’t checing the clients.

It I must subscribe somewhere to use  an SMTP server, it means that I will be checked. But for an SMTP server I am a stranger, because I have a softhome.net address.

Regards,
Adam

My ISP does not check clients. I use it all the time in my PERL scripts. Don't tell too many people, OK.
