how to get another server to send outgoing email with Outlook 2003
Posted on 2007-04-07
My ISP, Peoplepc, does not work with Outlook for outgoing email. I think because it uses an Earthlink network which has filters, which prevents outgoing email from going out from email clients like Outlook. PeoplePC does work with Outlook Express, but I want to use Outlook for some of its capabilities. Someone suggested I use a dodge by sending my outgoing email through Outlook out by another server. I tried to do this. Signed up with Yahoo Mail Plus, but couldn't do it.
I would very much appreciate someone telling me:
1. Which server should I get to be able to do this with the outgoing email from Outlook?
2. How do I set it up in Outlook?
When I tried to set it up with Outlook, I wasn't able to get it to work. I'll write what I did and would appreciate someone telling me how to do it with another server (Yahoo said they don't allow you to do this, so I'll need another server).
I set up a new email account in Outlook with the email address of one of my peoplepc identities - say firstname.lastname@example.org. For the incoming server, I used PeoplePC's incoming server address, pop.peoplepc.com. It asked for username and password, so I put my peoplepc username, myemail, and password.
Then, for the outgoing server, I put, in this attempt, Yahoo's outgoing mail server - aside from the fact that it didn't work, I was prompted both for the username and password for the incoming mail server and the username and password for outgoing mail server - that seemed to be a problem, because you had to use only one or the other.
So my question is - are you supposed to be setting it up this way, with servers from two different providers in the one setup box for the email account? Or do you do it some other way.
I'd very much appreciate someone telling where to get a server to use for the outgoing email and step by step directions for how to set it up in Outlook so my incoming email goes from my ISP, Peoplepc, to Outlook and my outgoing email from Outlook goes out through the other server I will get.
Thank you very much.
