All right, I'm trying to enable SMTP Authentication. I searched the forum for it and all I could find was "whm -> service", and my Web Host Manager doesn't have a link to "Service" and I tried looking through my e-mail client and maybe I'm just really tried. :)

Yeah, that's it, tired!

On the server side, you don't have to 'enable' smtp authentication - the ability to SMTP authenticate is already 'built in.'

On the client side (your email program, such as Outlook or Thunderbird, etc.) needs to be set up to use SMTP Authentication. Instructions for doing that vary from client to client.

What you will need to make sure is when you set up your email account in your email client, you specify the full email address as the POP3 username so that when you go and SMTP authenticate it will authenticate using the full email address.

All right, thanks. :) How would I go about authenticating the e-mail addresses into SquirrelMail, then?
