2, What service is assigned to your e-mail address (EmailPro, Free Email or Email Freedom).

3, Your e-mail address password.


You can find this information by clicking Email Addresses in the left-hand navigation in MyFreeola, then My Email Addresses. You should then be able to click Settings & Features button next to the relevant e-mail address, your e-mail protocol and service information can be found here.

This setting can be found be pressing More Settings then navigating to the Outgoing Server tab. Some ISPs may also prevent you from sending mail over port 25, in order to avoid this you may also wish to change your outgoing mail port to 2025 on the Advanced tab.
