While there are many different kinds of email programs, there are going to be things in common with just about all of them. Rather than go over lists of steps and screenshots, we’ll go over some general principles in this section. Somewhere in the email program that you use, it will ask for the following information:
Inbound Mail Server (POP3)
This is the name of the computer or group of computers that processes email that is coming into the email account. Think of it as the “fetching” computer. For Blue Tie email, the POP3 server is…
If the email address is email@example.com, then the POP3 server is pop.yourdomain.com ALSO, the server pop.bluetie.com will work as well.
Outbound Mail Server (SMTP)
This is the name of the computer or group of computers that processes email that is leaving the email account. Think of it as the “sending” computer. For Blue Tie email, the SMTP server is…
smtp.(domainname).com/net/etc. If the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, then the SMTP server is smtp.yourdomain.com ALSO, the server smtp.bluetie.com will work as well.
Some internet service providers (ISPs) don’t allow customers to use outbound email servers not controlled by the ISP. If you get errors just sending your email, but can receive it just fine, you will probably need to get your SMTP server information from the ISP.
