Open your e-mail program. The instructions here are for Outlook Express, but any other POP e-mail program (such as Outlook, Eudora, Netscape or Incredimail) should be similar.
- Open your Outlook Express. You do not have to be online to make these changes.
- Click on “tools” then “accounts”.
- Click on the mail tab.
- Click on your Computer Country e-mail account to highlight it, then click on “properties” to the right.
- Click on the tab that says “servers”.
- Change the name of the outgoing mail(smtp) server to: smtp.ccountry.net.
- Put a check in the box that says "My server requires authentication".
- Click on the tab that says “advanced”.
- You will see a small check box under outgoing mail (SMTP) that says “This sever requires a secure connection (ssl) CHECK that box.
- Change the port from 25 to 465.*
- Click on OK at the bottom, and then click on close.
Note: You need to disable the scanning of out going email in your virus scanning program or this can make sending an email fail.
You can now authenticate using ssl from anywhere in the world and send mail through our server.
* On some e-mail programs, port 465 won't work. If you can get e-mail, but are not able to send, try changing the port back to 25.
