Does anyone know if its possible to send email from a Clear email address using Slingshot as your internet supplier.


My mother in law uses a Clear one currently on Spark/Xtra which has been OK until recently - after many issues a while back when you had to get an xtra email address and register the Clear email address. Its stopped working again and i'm taking the opportunity to look for a better deal for phone/internet which Slingshot appears to be ( $75 odd vs $95 for Voda or Spark )

Pretty sure there shouldn't be as I didn't think they allowed relaying. I would suggest getting a or address and avoiding ISP email addresses altogether.

I would not recommend using slingshot SMTP servers to relay email with an address they have an SPF (Send Policy Framework):

v=spf1 ip4: ~all


Even though the qualifier is ~all (softfail) it may cause issues some providers receiving email.

But someone correct me if I'm wrong if you have an address you should be able to use their SMTP servers however will require authentication to relay the email.
