It seems that over time the problem of sending email out through a "foreign" or "3rd party" connections (such as from hotels, etc.) has evolved and I'd like to see a rather definitive reference on the subject.
This is ONLY about using email client programs .. not about web mail please.
- It used to be that one could or would *have to* set up the outgong server in the email client program to match the ISP where you were connected at any time.
- It appears that either this was a misconception or has mostly gone away. Now one can send mail "using" their normal "at home" ISP server settings in the mail client program. It appears that all that's necessary is to have the "My server requires authentication" box checked and any login information included (which may simply be the same as the incoming login).
But, truthfully, I'm guessing at the latter. So, I'd like to read something clear and definite about this. It's obviously of great interest to travellers.
