I'm doing that...... mail.xxxxxxx.com for the host.....and using the login for an EMail account there.....This would typically be a question for your hosting provider.
Typically it would be mail.domain.tld for the incoming/outgoing mail server (replace domain.tld for your actual domain / top level domain)
No problem with WebMail............I'd suggest trying webmail first (domain.tld/webmail) and see if you can get logged in. If that works, then you know that the password is correct. Is POP/IMAP working?
Ok....Will try port 25. Currently using 587 for SMTP........fwiwThanks for the update - just to confirm, you *can* connect with a client, and you can download/receive messages fine, but you're not able to send, correct? If so, I believe we need to try the port testing I mentioned earlier to test the connection from your local system to the server with the mail ports. You'll want to check port 25 as that is the default port for sending messages in most cases.
I just posted it above..........did you not see it.......it says that Telnet was UNABLE to connect@Zardiw - please keep all replies in this thread to avoid confusion.
That indicates your local Windows machine is able to reach the server properly over the port you used to test, which I am assuming is port 25. Can you let me know the error message you're getting in your mail client?
