AuthSMTP - The Global SMTP Service

Here are answers to some of the questions you may have about AuthSMTP:

What does AuthSMTP do?

AuthSMTP is an outgoing email service that will allow you to send emails from your email address. It works from almost any normal Internet connection providing that your email program or application supports SMTP authentication.

What is SMTP authentication?

SMTP authentication is where your email program connects to an SMTP server and sends a username and password to authenticate and allow you to send emails through that server.

How does AuthSMTP work?

AuthSMTP works in the following way:

Can I use my domain / email address with AuthSMTP?

Almost certainly 'yes'.  In a small number of situations the service may not work due to technical restrictions by your ISP or hosting company - so we offer a money back guarantee

Will AuthSMTP work with my Internet connection?

AuthSMTP can be used with the vast majority of Internet connections including most broadband, corporate networks and mobile Internet connections.

What programs and applications does AuthSMTP work with?

AuthSMTP is compatible with almost all email programs / applications that support SMTP authentication such as:

  • Email clients (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Mac Mail)
  • Mobile devices (iPhone / iTouch / iPod, Windows Mobile devices, Symbian S60 devices)
  • Mailing list / bulk email software (Max Bulk Mailer, Infacta Group Mail)
  • Mail server software (Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino)
  • Mail transfer agents (Sendmail, Postfix, Exim)
  • Web scripting (PHP, ASP)

This is just a brief list - we have a full list of software supported by AuthSMTP and there will be many others that we do not list.

How long does it take to set up?

Account details are sent immediately (once we receive payment confirmation) - so you can sign up and be up and running in minutes.

Can you help me set it up?

AuthSMTP is very simple to setup and we provide setup guides for most of the major email programs. If you are configuring the service with some of the more complex mail server software or a custom application you may need to consult the software or application vendors for advice on how to setup authenticated SMTP.

What does the anti-virus scanning do?

AuthSMTP scans outgoing messages for viruses and other bad content. If they are detected the message will be blocked and returned to you with an explanation so that the recipient does not receive it.

Why would I want to duplicate my outgoing email?

You can optionally enable email duplication so that any emails you send through AuthSMTP are duplicated to an email address of your choice - the main purpose of this feature is so that you can keep a backup of messages that you send.

Can you stop my emails being blacklisted and / or going to the spam folder?

AuthSMTP can help with many of the common causes of poor deliverability - we monitor various third party blacklists, are signed up to many ISP feedback loop services and all our servers have correct / valid DNS and reverse DNS entries. We can also provide specific advice on your emails to help resolve other /content related issues.

We offer a money back guarantee for your peace of mind so you can sign up and test with no risk.
