SMTP sending options

  • Enter the address of your mail server for sending mail in the Server field and select if the server requires authentication (entering a username and a password).

    Free webmail providers often supply information about which of these options can be used. If you are in an organizational environment, you may want to contact your system administrator for more information.

  • If the server requires authentication, you need to provide the following information:

    • Select the authentication type in the Authentication list, or click Check for Supported Types to have Evolution check. Some servers do not support this, so clicking this button is not a guarantee that available mechanisms actually work.

    • Enter your username.

  • Choose Use a secure connection if you want to connect securely.
