Send and receive mail over bt-broadband

  eske 10:11 26 Jun 2003

I have just got bt-broadband and installed a router to serve all my home pc's.
I have a business email for which I have been told I can receive and send my mail using the bt broadband connection. I have managed to install it so i receive but can't send any mail. Any suggestions on what needs to be done to send my business e-mail over the broarband connection?

this is a hardwired LAN ?
surely all you set up was the mail accounts for the business address ( is that a different ISP )
you can set the outgoing mail to be sent via the new mail server address, as you now have a different address to the business, so set the smtp on the business to the new address and leave the pop as the original settings.
last not least does every pc connect to the router via an IP address and have you set all the PCs to connect to that address with outlook via the LAN, as unless you re-configured the email settings to LAN

Do you work from home or are you trying to access your work email at home?
