How to Set up Outlook 2000 Accounts
These settings are for your outgoing mail server. This is because to prevent people from using mail servers (to send SPAM) without permission it is necessary to require authentication to send mail. Many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) also require that users are dialed into their network to send mail even with the authentication. This means that you will not likely be able to send mail through an ISPs mail server unless you use their account to connect to the internet. For example, if you have an Earthlink ISP and an AT&T ISP, Earthlink will not allow you to send mail through their mail server even if you have the proper authentication as long as you are using an AT&T account to connect to the internet. Therefore depending on your organization's mail policy, you may need to use your ISP account to send your mail even if you are receiving your email on a different work account.
