How do I determine what my SMTP server name is?

John Zukowski

If you are in a corporate environment, you would ask the IT support group for your company. For individuals (usually from home), you should have received this information from your ISP.

In either case, if you are already sending and receiving mail from a mail tool like Outlook, Eudora, pine... , you should already have this information configured in your mail tool and can just copy the information from that setup.

In many cases, it is just prefixing smtp with your domain. If your domain was microsoft.com, a good guess at the server might be smtp.microsoft.com.
