Hi if this is the wrong forum please advise so I can redirect.
I have just changed to virgin broadband from orange [ freeserve]. this means I have gone from a phone line to a cable supplied email service.
when I was with orange I could send and receive emails via my domain service provider ie email account was set to pop.***studio.co.uk and smpt.freeserve.co.uk and
for freeserve mail pop.freeserve.co.uk smpt.freeserve.co.uk
now with virgin I can receive from the above pop settings but the smpt understandably has to be set as smpt.virginmedia.com
that makes sence but what does not is that emails sent all arrive at there distination as have been sent by ******@verginmedia .com not from ****studio ect ect
this is because i have had to set the outgoing server settings to my outgoing server requires authentication and log on as ****@virginmedi.com
and log on using spa.
this the only way that virgin as smpt will allow mail out and of course the mail arrives as from virginmedia not freeserve or ***studio.co.uk
if you follow this does anyone know how to set up a email address other than virgin one but send it via virgin??
