I have an ISP that requires that I authenticate when sending mail through SMTP. I need to find out how to authenticate or if there is e-mail software that does this!

I obviously need to authenticate when I receive my e-mail but now I am required to give my username and password when I send e-mail also. This change came because of spammers using his server.

Please Help!!

You are looking for software that supports RFC821 and at least RFC1651 (and maybe RFC1869 and RFC2554). If you feel so inclined, you can find out what all these standards (and proposed standards are by going to: http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/htbin/rfc/INDEX.rfc.html).

Eudora definitely supports what your looking for:

Looks like the answer I was looking for. Microsoft Outlook Express and Netscape Communicator didn't solve the problem at all. I truly appreciate the quick answer!!
