Sending Email via IPass, or from a non-Pulsant internet connection, using authenticated SMTP.

When you are sending email from a non-Pulsant internet connection it is normal practise to use the outgoing mail server of your own ISP. However there may be cases where you would prefer to use a Pulsant server to send your email – for example if you travel around a lot and do not want to use Webmail or constantly change the server settings in your email client wherever you go.

Due to our constant efforts to reduce spam on the internet we have provided a SMTP authentication server for you. This requires a small change in configuration of your email client. The settings are:

SMTP Host: smtp-auth.lumison.net
SMTP Port: 25 (see note below)
username/password: same settings as your lumison email account.

Note :- Some service providers now capture SMTP traffic, on port 25, and forward this to their own servers. This will prevent you from connecting to smtp-auth.lumison.net using the normal configuration, in these situations we would suggest that you change the SMTP port to 465 and enable ssl. This may get around the issue but unfortunately we cannot guarantee a connection when using another service provider.

Please see the links below for detailed instructions on how to configure this in your email software:-
