So Yahoo allowed it, will SMX do also?




A good example is there are many people out there who have non Xtra addresses and their mail client sends mail through a Xtra account because it worked on all ISP's due to its SSL secure nature.




When Yahoo got disconnected we are seeing this getting stopped with relay denied.




Had a look through the new Xtra webmail and can't see any options/settings to enable or allow relaying from outside networks.




Don't think Xtra support will have a clue if I ask them, so thought id ask the community here! :-)

It is a basic feature of all Yahoo Mail accounts so you could just sign up for a free Yahoo Mail account and send through that. SMTP2GO is probably a better option.



As far as I'm aware and I believe this was from the other thread, sending from third party addresses through the new Xtra system is something still under consideration / under development although I don't really see the point now they have already moved people over so there is going to be a 'gap' in service. If they were or weren't going to continue this aspect of the service they should have communicated this prior to the migration.

Every time I see Xtra I just think 'Why?!?!'

SMTP2GO is the service to use. They still allow 250 emails per month on the free service. We maintain a 'Gold' subscription and simply make it freely available to our customers who require it as they pay their monthly maintenance and the cost is so neglible to us. No reason it couldn't be on charged to customers though.

Just make sure SPF's get updated to include smtp2go and all happy days.
