Bulk Mailer FAQ

Question:What is SMTP?
Answer:The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the mechanism for delivery of email. This program will communicate with your company or Internet Service Provider's (ISP's) SMTP server. That SMTP server will relay the message on to the SMTP server of the recipient(s) to eventually be acquired by the user(s) through POP or IMAP. This does not require your SMTP server to be an open relay, as authentication is supported, but it is your responsibility to ensure the SMTP server is configured properly.
To find your current SMTP Server settings go to your email program (for example: MS Outlook), look for account settings and locate your outgoing messages server, user and password.
