SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is a TCP/IP protocol used in sending and receiving email. SMTP is limited in its ability to queue messages at the receiving end, so usually it’s used with one of two other protocols: POP3 or Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP). These protocols allow the user to save messages in a server mailbox and download them periodically from the server.
DNS Made Easy’s SMTP service provides a secure relay for sending outgoing email using SMTP Authentication.
Many ISP’s today block outgoing port 25 as a spam mitigation precaution. However, this prevents many legitimate clients from sending email from their own domain names. SMTP service from DNS Made Easy will allow you to specify an alternate port for your outgoing email relay through our server.
Enterprise DNS Made Easy mail servers will act as a relay for your email messages using SMTP authentication. DNS Made Easy’s SMTP Service allows you to configure an account username and password so you can authenticate with our SMTP servers. After authentication, you can send up to your allotted quota in email as a user from your own domain(s) and from any email account you wish. Your email client or server will need to be configured to use our outgoing SMTP server with the authentication credentials you have created.
You can configure your email client or server to send all authenticated SMTP traffic to any of the following ports:
SSL or non-SSL: 21, 25, 5521, 5525, 7721, 7725, 2525
SSL only: 465, 5555
NOTE: DNS Made Easy DNS service for your domain(s) is required to use our SMTP services. We require all users to first create an account, configure DNS service, then call our offices to subscribe to the SMTP service for verification.
