SMTP Settings for Outlook


To set up an SMTP server for Outlook and start sending your emails is necessary to follow some simple steps.

And here’s Outlook’s SMTP configuration:

1. Select “Account Settings…” from the “Tools” menu.

2. Select your email account and click on the “Change” button.

3. Insert your server’s name in the “Outgoing mail server (SMTP)” field. If you don’t know what you should be using, you can use smtp.goconnect.co.za (only works within the goconnect network)

4. Click on the “More Settings…” button.

5. Select the “Outgoing Server” tab.

6. If you intend to send your emails with authentication, check the “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” box. Then select “Log on using”.

7. Enter your username (the email address from which you send out) and your password.

8. Set the SMTP port to 25 in the “Outgoing server (SMTP)” tab.

9. Click “Ok”, “Next >”, and “Finish”.

Here it is, you can start sending emails!

That said, however, remember that in general Outlook is not the right tool for email marketing(having been created mostly for one-to-one messages and not for mass email sending).

Beyond the problems with SMTP servers, Outlook can therefore generate other difficulties when it comes to send a newsletter. That’s why we recommend that you rely on a dedicated sending software like MailChimp for high volume email sending.
