Can you set my mail server to relay mail for me?

No, we cannot set your mail server to relay mail. Having an open relay mail server would let spammers use our servers to send out mass mailings. This would decrease performance for you, and probably get us blacklisted very quickly. We do have a workaround for this!

For script mail:

Please use your IP address or domain name as the SMTP host in all scripted email. This will send the mail out through your local web server, which is designed to handle it.

For Outlook and other mail clients:

You'll need to enable SMTP authencation in order to send mail through a mail client. You can see instructions on SMTP authentication here.
