Opera Mail 9 and 10 - Default Port - Setup Guide

Important Points

  • First you need to make sure the email address(es) you will be sending from have been authorised for your account in our Control Panel .
  • These instructions assume your email account has already been setup and is collecting email correctly.
  • Take a note of any settings you change.
  • Only change the items specified - you should not need to change either your email address, POP3 server, POP3 username / password.
  • We have instructions for both default SMTP port and alternate SMTP port configurations - alternate port is generally used if your ISP blocks the normal port 25 SMTP access (as many do these days!).

Step One

  • Load Opera 9.x or 10.x
  • Go to the 'Tools' Menu and click 'Mail and Chat Accounts...'
Opera v9 - Step 1 - Go to the Tools menu and click Mail and Chat Accounts

Step Two

  • Choose the email account you wish to use with the AuthSMTP service
  • Click 'Edit...'
Opera v9 - Step 2 - Select email account and click Edit

Step Three

  • Go to the 'Servers' tab
  • In the 'Outgoing SMTP Server' section in the bottom half of the window change the 'Server' to the one in the confirmation email we sent to you
  • Change 'Authentication' to 'AUTH CRAM-MD5'
  • Enter the AuthSMTP username and password that was given to you in the confirmation email
  • Click 'OK'
Opera v9 - Step 3 - Go to the Servers tab, change the Outgoing SMTP server to AuthSMTP's, change authentication type to CRAM-MD5 and then enter your AuthSMTP username and password

Step Four

  • You should now be back to the main Opera 9.x screen
  • Close Opera and then reload
  • Check you are online then test to ensure you can send mail correctly
  • All done!
