email flow - sending email
Posted by Wolf on 23 September 2011 01:32 PM
We are often asked about sending out email through our servers and the primary reason is that people want their email address to reflect their domain names. Our normal hosting packages include pop3 or imap inbound email. We do offer outbound (smtp) at an additional charge.

Many of today's Internet Service providers actually block you from sending out on port 25 to a mail server other than theirs. They do this to reduce the liklihood of your computer sending out spam. (port 25 is the standard output port for sending) So we recommend getting your email coming in from our servers and sending through your ISP.

In order to get email to work correctly and have people respond back to your email address based on your domain name it is quite easy. All you need to do is set the "Reply" to address in your email client (ie outlook)
