Every time I try adding either address, verification fails. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? I went to both services and used the proper settings. Both also require SSL which I do not see an option for in CMS unless that is automatically done with the “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication”.
Found it on about.com. I don’t have either types of these accounts anymore but I did run a test with yahoo email a month or so ago and the smtp.yahoo.com worked for me. Whats the difference between Frontier and a normal Yahoo Mail account?
It works for me over Gmail with below configurations. I think you should check your email provider alternative settings. For below example, Port 465 did not work for me but 587 works.
“Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - Requires TLS smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465 or 587
Requires SSL: Yes
Requires authentication: Yes
Use same settings as incoming mail server
Full Name or Display Name: [your name]
