I have a DSL connection through SBC one place and a Cable modem connection through Comcast another place.
I am required to use EUDORA on my laptop which I connect wirelessly to a Belkin router at the former and a D-Link router at the latter location.
At the latter location, I have no problems sending outgoing messages from Eudora since I use smtp.comcast.net or Godaddy.com's SMTP smtpout.secureserver.net (as my email address firstname.lastname@example.org is a Godaddy email account).
However, at the former location with the SBC DSL, I can't find an SMTP that will let me send out email from Eudora. Not smtpout.secureserver.net, smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com, smtp.pacbell.yahoo.com, smtpauth.prodigy.net, smtp.swbell.yahoo.com, nor any other SMTP from http://www.host45.com/resources/ispsmtps.php
. It just gives me the error: The SMTP server said: 530 authentication required - for help go to http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/sbc/dsl/mail/pop/pop-11.html
which doesn't help because it does not apply to my circumstances.
1) Can you recommend a few SMTP servers that will allow me to send out email from Eudora through my SBC DSL connection, both wired or wirelessly?
I even tried to setup my laptop as an SMTP server, installing a program called "Free SMTP Server" from softstack.com. This also didn't work, the SMTP server saying: 550 Invalid recipient: <any email address that I tried>.
2) Why didn't Free SMTP Server work?
3) Lastly, are there any "free" remote SMTP servers out there anymore? Like in the past, SMTP servers that allow anybody to send any mail without the server requiring authentication nor filtering according to email address or what not?
Thanks a lot for your speedy help!!!
