When I use my notebook for email, I get errors trying to send email messages when I am away from my home/office. |
What can I do?
When you are at home or at the office, typically you send emails using the outgoing mail server provided by your access provider. (eg when connected to the internet via Charter, use their outgoing email server.) This setup is widely adopted by most providers as a means to help control spam sources.
However, when traveling or roaming, you can find yourself in a position where you are connected to the internet either at a hotel or at a wireless "hotspot". In this situation, you frequently don't know the provider or the name of the outgoing email server. There are two options to send messages in this scenario.
The first is to login to the webmail interface using your web browser. The url or address is http://mail.mi-co.net or you can click on the link on the Mi-Co, Inc. home page http://www.mi-co.net . While using webmail, you can send or receive messages outside of your email client.
If you are using an email client (Outlook Express, Outlook, Eudora, etc...), you can change your outgoing email server settings when roaming. There are typically 4 changes that need to be made.
Note: This will not work if your access provider is blocking port 25 traffic|
Below is a list of providers that are blocking port 25.

After testing your ability to send emails, you need to instruct gmail to use your email address as the reply to email.

Some email software requires you to type in your password on the first send, then remembers your setups for later use.
