Email Settings FAQ
I can receive email, but when I send email - why am I getting an error?
Your email client most likely has to authenticate when sending outgoing Email and your email client has either lost that setting or wasn't entered in correctly. This is most common in Microsoft Outlook Clients - See Step #8 in Microsoft Outlook Setup Guide and remember to put a checkbox beside "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication".
