Having Trouble Sending Email?
If you are having troubles sending Email, it may be due to your ISP locking the
SMTP port to use only their server. You can try using Active Web Hosting's
alternate SMTP port 587. If that doesn't work, you will have to use your
ISP's SMTP server and log in with your ISP username and password for SMTP
or sending mail only. You will need to contact your ISP for further instructions
on setting up your email client to use their SMTP port.
To set up Eudora to use a different SMTP port for your Active Web Hosting account,
you will need to edit the C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\eudora.ini
file in Windows Notepad or a plain text editor. Look for your account which would
go under a header similar to [Persona - Your Name]. It will usually have
POPAccountfirstname.lastname@example.org for example. Go to the bottom of the
list in that category and add this line: SMTPPort=587 and press ENTER.
Save this file. Note that there is no menu item or other way to change the port
for any account in Eudora's menus. This is the only way to edit the port number
with this version of Eudora.
