How to Send Email
Click on the Compose icon and choose your email account from the from drop down box. Then fill in the To box with the email address you wish to send to. You can send to more than one person by filling in an address in each box. You can also click next to the arrow to the right of the To label and change it to CC (Carbon Copy) or BCC (Blind Carbon Copy - where the recipients won't see who you sent the email to).
Normally it's best to let Mozilla use one STMP server to send all your mail. If you wish to change the server, user ID and password for the SMTP server, go to the Edit Menu and select Properties. Select the Outgoing Server (SMTP) and make your chages there. If you would like to add another outgoing mail server account, click on the Advanced... button to add a new account. When sending email you will have to specify to use the new SMTP server or the default one will be used.
When you first check for new mail on your new account, Mozilla will ask you for your incoming mail server password. Click on the checkbox in the password window to have Mozilla remember your password.
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 Mozilla to use a different SMTP port for your Active Web Hosting account, follow these steps:
Now you should be able to send your Email via your domain's mail server. If this does not work, contact your ISP to learn how to set your Email client up to send from their SMTP server instead.
