How to Use Free SMTP Servers in G-Lock EasyMail

Written by Julia. Posted in Articles, Tips and Tricks

Using an SMTP server to send emails is faster and more reliable because the emails sent through the SMTP server have more chances to be delivered into the Inbox. If your ISP SMTP server is able to handle many messages at a time and does not impose strict email sending restrictions, you can use your ISP SMTP settings in G-Lock EasyMail.

To setup an account in G-Lock EasyMail, do this:

1. Open G-Lock EasyMail and click on the Accounts menu

2. Click on “Add New Account” menu item

3. Type the account name and enter the user information

4. Click on the Delivery Options tab

5. Select “Send via SMTP server” delivery mode 

Then it is necessary to specify the name of the SMTP server and the port number (usually it’s 25). In case if the user authentication is required, check “My server requires authentication” option and enter your Login and Password. If the SMTP server requires a secure connection, enable the SSL protocol (STARTTLS or SSL).

These parameters are used in your email client software, therefore you can simply “copy” them from a working email account in your email client and enter them in the Account settings in our bulk email sender program.

If you have an account with free email service providers, you can use their SMTP settings in G-Lock EasyMail too.

Below you’ll find how to use Gmail, Yahoo!Mail, MSN/Hotmail, AOL, Lycos and GoDaddy SMTP Settings in G-Lock EasyMail. Plus, they all have different sending policies and restrictions that you need to be aware of.

Using Direct (DNS) Send Mode

You can select the “Direct Send” mode in G-Lock EasyMail to send emails bypassing any SMTP server. In this mode G-Lock EasyMail works like an SMTP server. It connects directly to the recipient’s mail server and sends the message. Note that the direct send mode works if your ISP does not block the port 25. If the account test in G-Lock EasyMail with the direct send mode fails, the first thing you can do is check your firewall. If firewall is not blocking G-Lock EasyMail, contact your ISP and ask them about the port 25. If they say they allow you send emails only through their SMTP server (i.e. block the port 25), select either the “Send via SMTP server” mode and enter the settings as described above, or select the “Send via Amazon SES” sending mode. Here you can read how to send emails via Amazon SES in G-Lock EasyMail.
