Email Changes Required

Most of our clients who use SMTP to send email will now have to make some small changes to their email settings. This will fix any current issues you may have with “Relay not permitted” error messages.

Please note your email address and username are the same and we have no direct access to your email password so if you need it and have forgotten we can only issue you with a replacement password.

Any mail client sending via SMTP should use port 587 instead of ports 25 or 465. Details on how to change this will vary on your mail client, but we’ve detailed some of these further down this article.

It is also advisable to use STARTTLS for your encryption method.
