fix: can’t send SMTP e-mail via when using other network


If you have an e-mail account you may find out that when connecting your laptop to another network (say you’re travelling) you can’t send SMTP e-mails.

To fix this make sure you set your STMP server settings to use SSL encryption and provide the port number 465 for connection.

If you use Outlook (Express) you can find this option at Tools/(Internet) accounts menu. Then select the OTEnet account you use and edit its settings. At the properties dialog, go to the Advanced tab and edit the SMTP settings as shown above.

You may also need to select at Servers tab that the outgoing e-mail connection needs authentication.

Another thing to keep in mind is that for incoming e-mail OTEnet uses a POP3 service at, whereas for outgoing e-mail it uses an SMTP service at (a different DNS name).
