How do I find my outgoing mail server?

What is an outgoing mail server?

Your Outgoing Mail Server is what you use for sending email in programs such as Outlook and Outlook Express.
The outgoing mail server you use for uploading to SportingPulse will depend on the ISP (Internet Service Provider) you are connected to the Internet through. If you use a laptop and connect to different ISP’s, depending on your location, you will need to obtain the outgoing mail server for the ISP you are connected to at the time you are uploading.

How do I find my outgoing mail server?

The easiest way to find your outgoing mail server is to contact your ISP. Most ISP’s provide their outgoing mail server in the Help/Support sections of their Websites.
