Account name/Username For Blue Tie email, the username or account name is different when people are using an email program to check their email. The username or account name for this purpose is their FULL email address from start to finish.
Password At last, something that is self explanatory.
“My outbound server requires authentication” Many email programs will have settings you can change that deal with properly identifying the account to the email host computers, proving that the account is entitled to access. This is something that makes is more difficult for anonymous computers to simply grab any outbound server they want when they are sending spam.
As a default, most email programs will have the account “identify” itself to the server when collecting inbound email. The TuCows system also requires identification, or “authentication” when sending email outbound. Not all programs automatically have the account identify itself when doing this, so there will be a setting to turn this on and off.
If a customer is using their ISP for outbound mail service, they likely won’t need to turn this setting on in their email program.
