UltraSMTP works with all standard desktop and mobile email clients, and can be used for sending mail from any sending email address, and from any internet connection. Any of the following configurations may be used to set your mail client to send outgoing mail through UltraSMTP:

Outgoing SMTP Server NamePortSecurity
smtp.ultrasmtp.com465SSL/TLS
smtp.ultrasmtp.com25STARTTLS

Note: Messages sent through UltraSMTP must be sent FROM an email address registered on your UltraSMTP account. You can register up to ten email addresses on your account, by logging into your account at the UltraSMTP web site (under 'account preferences').
General instructions for configuring your mail client to send outgoing mail through UltraSMTP:
1) In your mail client's settings, specify smtp.ultrasmtp.com as the name of the outgoing SMTP mail server. The mail client should connect to smtp.ultrasmtp.com on port 465 with SSL/TLS; or alternatively it can connect to smtp.ultrasmtp.com on port 25 or port 587 with STARTTLS.

2) Set your mail client to use authentication with your outgoing mail server, and provide your UltraSMTP username and password when prompted by your mail client for the username and password to login to smtp.ultrasmtp.com.

Note: Only these settings pertaining to outgoing mail should be changed - no settings pertaining to incoming mail (POP or IMAP) should be changed. Changing settings that pertain to incoming mail may disrupt access to your incoming mail.
