Notebook with outgoing mail serversIf you’ve tried setting up your mail client and are struggling getting it to send your emails, you’re most likely dealing with what’s called an SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol), or outgoing mail server. The mail client will ask you for your “smtp server” but we continually get messages from readers that they’re left scratching their heads as to what that is.

We are continually updating the list of outgoing mail servers below based on user requests. The table includes outgoing mail servers from around the globe. We’ll also show you how you can skip the need for an outgoing server altogether, which is especially useful if you’re on the road.

Article Overview

What Is An Outgoing Mail Server?

Your outgoing mail server is used to send emails from your computer. Depending on where your email account is hosted, you may or may not be able to use your email provider’s outgoing mail server. Email addresses based on hosted email services such as Hotmail, Google, Yahoo, etc. will use their own outgoing mail servers.

If your email is hosted on your own website, you may want to use your hosting provider’s mail server. For example, websites hosted on may use as both their incoming and outgoing mail servers.

My Outgoing Mail Server Doesn’t Work!

Some ISP’s (Internet Service Providers) will not allow you to make use of your own outgoing mail server. In this situation, you’ll need to use your ISP’s outgoing mail server. Find the name of your ISP and use the chart below to find your outgoing mail server.

If you are intent on using your own site’s mail server, you may want to contact your ISP. You can also try changing your outgoing mail (SMTP) port number to 26 (default is 25), as some ISP’s will block port 25 because it is often used for spamming.

Getting Your SMTP Server to Work

The top things people miss when trying to setup their outgoing server are as follows:

  • Misspelling the outgoing server name (for example, typing instead of
  • Some servers require outgoing authentication. There should be a box you can check to enable this (it will have your email client use your email address and password to authenticate any emails that you send).
  • Some setups require an SSL connection. If this is the case, your outgoing port will most likely change (from 25 or 26 to 465).
  • In most cases, you will not need SPA (Secure Password Authentication).
