What is my SMTP
When you need to set an email client, one of the first questions is: What is my SMTP server?
Most server names are written in the form "smtp.domain.com" or "mail.domain.com": for instance, a Gmail account will refer to smtp.gmail.com. But that's not a unified rule, so you should pay attention and get the right SMTP parameters.
There are several ways to know your SMTP server name. Below you find a list of the SMTP settings of the most common providers; if you are using a very local or less known provider which is not on the list, you should have a look at its web page (and in case, don't hesitate to contact it).
Remember anyway that only a professional SMTP server will guarantee that all your emails will be correctly delivered. Generally speaking, free outgoing servers like the ones associated to Gmail or Hotmail are not designed for mass email sending.
So if you're putting up a newseltter campaign or simply don't want to get any of your messages lost, you should switch to a dedicated outgoing server like turboSMTP. You can subscribe and get immediately 6.000 free relays per month, forever.
