Opera Mail 8 - Alternate Port - Setup Guide
- First you need to make sure the email address(es) you will be sending from have been authorised for your account in our Control Panel .
- These instructions assume your email account has already been setup and is collecting email correctly.
- Take a note of any settings you change.
- Only change the items specified - you should not need to change either your email address, POP3 server, POP3 username / password.
- We have instructions for both default SMTP port and alternate SMTP port configurations - alternate port is generally used if your ISP blocks the normal port 25 SMTP access (as many do these days!).
- Open 'Tools' menu - click 'Accounts' option
- Click the mail account to update to select it
- Change SMTP server to: mail.authsmtp.com
- Drop down the authentication box and select: CRAM-MD5
- Enter the AuthSMTP username and password you were supplied with
- Change 'Outgoing Server Port Number' to 2525
