Alternate Outgoing Mail Setup Options:
We have acquired permission to utilize an alternate mail server, which uses SMTP authorization in addition to the "POP before SMTP" authorization that our servers do. The problem with the POP authorization is that it can take between 30 seconds and 5 minutes for our servers to identify your IP address after you check your mail and make the necessary changes that would permit you to send mail. This alternate scheme eliminates the time delay but requires special settings in your email software. See the special setup instructions below:
The email account "thomasp", shown below, is fictitious. Replace this information with your account's "user name" and "password". Also, do not replace the "Incoming Mail POP3" setting. It should be "mail.i5net.net" for all i5net accounts.
