    Greetings!

    I'm new to this forum.

    I want to schedule a task in my Windows 2008 Server to send out emails every morning. I have the options of using the win task scheduler itself or sendmail app. But, they are asking me for smtp serve address, something like smtp.gmail.com.Now, I have my website & email in Cpanel. I have configured Outlook to use our emails but I use mail.ourwebsitename.com for outgoing mail server. No 'smtp' and it works. But this does not work with sendmail application or Task Scheduler send mail part. Is there anything I can use for smtp for my emails/webmails on Cpanel??

    I hope I tried to explain myself.

    Using mail.yourdomain.com is correct. Maybe there's a language barrier here, but I'm not really understanding why this isn't working for you.

    Could you elaborate more on how it does not work? What particular error message do you receive?

    Thank you.
