Hello

I own a domain name  mycompany.co.nz (not real name).  I have emails sent to that name redirected to my xtra account.  I had Thunderbird set up so that the "From" and "Reply To" fields in my outgoing email optionally looked like they were coming from me@mycompany.co.nz and not from me@xtra.co.nz.

Now that Telecom has changed to SSL, the server won't accept emails that aren't from me@xtra.co.nz.

Does anyone know if Telecom will allow me to send out emails "From"/"Reply to"  me@mycompany.co.nz?
I did try calling Telecom but I didn't want to wait an hour not to get an answer.

Log in to your account through the webmail portal and have a look at account settings there. From memory there's a setting for that but I can't recall where.

Perhaps it was something to do with authorising your domain name account to send through the xtra account. hmm. Will have a look tomorrow.

Why don't you send out on your own domains SMTP?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Yeah who is the email provider for your domain? Why not use their smtp server?

Receiving and sending emails from my xtra account is more convenient for me.
