E-mail SMTP Authentication Settings

What is SMTP Authentication?

SMTP Authentication is a transparent mechanism for our mail server to verify who you are. The server asks for your user name and password, which your mail program passes on. If you are verified as being a real hopitelecom.net user, then you'll be able to send your message.

Why do we use it?

In the fight to stop Spam (junkmail, Unsolicited Commercial E-mail, etc.), the rules that apply to mail servers acceptance of mail are getting ever stronger.

In order to set up mail clients to use SMTP Authentication, the following instructions should be used. Basically, SMTP Authentication needs to be enabled, and set up to use the email address and password of the user in question. Below are instructions and screen shots for the most common mail software currently in use.
