Using your own Domain's Outgoing Server

If you have a hosted account with Uniwebserve you may use the domain's outgoing server by following these steps:

  • Set outgoing server to
  • NB: Replace the "" part with your own domain name, for example if your domain is
    then your outgoing server would be
  • Enable Outgoing Server Authentication (on mobile phones this is called 'Require Sign-in')
  • If prompted for a username and password for your outgoing server, please use the same as for your incoming server

Using Gmail Outgoing Server with any email address

Google's SMTP server requires authentication, so here's how to set it up:

  • SMTP server (outgoing mail):
  • SMTP username: Your full Gmail address (e.g.
  • SMTP password: Your Gmail password
  • SMTP port: 465
  • SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes

OPTIONAL: In order to store a copy of outgoing emails in your Gmail or Google Apps Sent folder, log into your Gmail or Google Apps email Settings and click on the Forwarding/IMAP tab and scroll down to the IMAP Access section: IMAP must be enabled in order for emails to be properly copied to your sent folder.

NOTE: Google automatically rewrites the From line of any email you send via its SMTP server to the default Send mail as email address in your Gmail or Google Apps email account Settings. You need to be aware of this nuance because it affects the presentation of your email, from the point of view of the recipient, and it may also affect the Reply-To setting of some programs.

Workaround: In your Google email Settings, go to the Accounts tab/section and make "default" an account other than your Gmail/Google Apps account. This will cause Google's SMTP server to re-write the From field with whatever address you enabled as the default Send mail as address.

Alternate Outgoing Servers

If your outgoing server was discontinued or if you are simply having no luck sending mail while travelling abroad, try signing up for one of the following free SMTP services.
