Once you have purchased your SMTP Outbound package you can follow the instructions below to setup Mozilla Thunderbird to relay mail through our servers.
This article assumes that you have already setup your email account within Thunderbird, and that you know the username and password that you have setup for use on your SMTP Outbound service.
From within Thunderbird, click Tools and then Account Settings.
The account configuration page will appear. Click Outgoing Server (SMTP).
Click on Edit to change your outgoing server settings.
You can now edit your outbound settings. Enter relay.gradwell.net as the server name and set the authentication method to encrypted password. Enter the SMTP outbound username that you have set in the Gradwell control panel and click OK to save the settings.
The first time that you attempt to send an email you will be prompted for the password that you have created for the account.
Some ISPs block port 25, which is used by default for SMTP connections. If you are finding that sending mail does not work, return to the SMTP server settings page (where you entered your SMTP username) and set the Port to 225.
