Setting

Description

Smart Host Enabled

Enabling this option will force all outbound email to be sent to one server, which is entered here. Do not configure this to point back to the MailEnable server.

This server requires authentication

The server that is being forwarded all of the email may require SMTP authentication. If so, enable this option and enter the username and password that has been assigned. The login method used is AUTH LOGIN.

Domain smart-hosting takes priority

It may be desirable to configure a local domain in MailEnable and smart-host this to a different server to the general outbound email. Enabling this option will allow the smart-hosts that have been configured for individual domains to override the SMTP outbound smart-host.
