server to "mail.yourdomain.com" from within your email program. Also,
please be aware that in order to send email though our servers you must have
successfully checked your account within the past 60 minutes. Once you have
checked your mail, you will be able to send mail for the next 60 minutes.

servers so easily. Otherwise spammers could relay their bulk mail through
your account and send out millions of emails. Not only is spamming illegal
in some states, but it also degrades the server performance.
Click OK. This completes the basic setup - you should now be able to
send and receive email in Netscape Messenger.
